Some of those previous emails also contained language critical of Ocasio-Cortez, a freshman NY representative with unabashedly left-leaning positions, though no others used the phrase "domestic terrorist" before yesterday's.
Omar delivered the keynote speech at a fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on March 23 where she was recorded describing the September 11 attacks as merely an event where "some people did something".
Ocasio-Cortez's office pointed McClatchy to a New York Daily News interview with a retired New York firefighter who survived 9/11 and told the newspaper that Crenshaw had snubbed him as he lobbied for renewing the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.
"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", she said.
The Omar controversy stems from comments she made last month at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) fundraiser.
Ocasio-Cortez accused Crenshaw of twisting Omar's words. "In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind nearly ALL US domestic terrorist killings".
Ocasio-Cortez is not the only Democratic congresswoman to argue this week that the rhetoric used against her has placed her life in danger. "Why don't you go do something about that?" she tweeted at Crenshaw.
"I am questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks", the Fox News host later tweeted.

But Barr in the Friday letter said Ocasio-Cortez's remarks about Crenshaw go too far.
Crenshaw served five deployments overseas - while on his third combat tour, he was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Afghanistan that destroyed his right eye and badly injured his left eye.
A recent Siena poll found that 52 percent of Ocasio-Cortez's constituents have a favorable opinion of the Democrat, even as a larger majority also expressed a desire for Amazon to come to New York City. Democrats should call out his bullshit. There are also derogatory allusions to her youth, like when commentator Brit Hume said that "she's kind of adorable in sort of the way that a 5-year-old child can be adorable", according to the research.
