Committee Strips Credential of Anti-Trump Delegate From DC

A GOP presidential convention delegate who has been critical of presumptive nominee Donald Trump has been ousted from the convention.

A credentials committee on Friday voted to reject Rina Shah Bharara, who had been a top vote-getter at the District of Columbia's nominating convention.

Bharara said Friday the vote is a sign the convention is controlled by pro-Trump forces.

Bharara's role as a delegate has been controversial since gave an interview saying her opposition to Trump was so strong that she might support Democrat Hillary Clinton instead. She has since promised to vote for a Republican in November.

After that interview, the D.C. Republican Party removed her as a delegate, saying it learned she was not a D.C. resident.

Earlier this week, though, another convention committee recommended Bharara's reinstatement.
