DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says she was misquoted on GOP-Israel remark

Democratic National Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is taking heat over a Washington Examiner article which reported she said Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren called the GOP “dangerous for Israel.”

Ambassador Oren denied making the remark, releasing this statement: “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz told my FNC colleague Shepard Smith last night that the Washington Examiner misquoted her. Watch the video of her interview with Shep above.
