Omar’s senior communications director Jeremy Slevin dismissed Project Veritas's reporting as a distraction.

“The amount of truth to this story is equal to the amount Donald Trump paid in taxes of ten out of the last fifteen years: zero. And amplifying a coordinated right-wing campaign to delegitimize a free and fair election this fall undermines our democracy,” he said according to Newsweek while referring to the New York Times report on Sunday about Trump’s tax returns.
