Representative Ilhan Omar and Venezuela Enovy Elliott Abrams clash over the role of the U.S. military in Central America, and Nicaragua and El Salvador in particular, in the 1980s and how it might have repercussions for possible U.S. military involvement in Venezuela. The exchange begins with Representative Omar questioning Mr. Abrams' credibility in light of his pleading to misdemeanors for withholding information from Congress during the Iran-Contra affair.
