Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.5 | Relevance 4.5

Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are among eight Democratic Congress members who have affiliations with a nonprofit group linked to Hamas involved in a landmark federal civil lawsuit.  The group is subject to discovery in the lawsuit seeking to hold the group financially liable for the 1996 terrorist slaying of 17-year-old David Boim in the West Bank.  A network of American-based Palestinian nonprofit groups were sued by Boim’s parents in federal court, and the family was ultimately awarded a $156 million judgment but the groups never paid up, claiming they were bankrupt and defunct.
