Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar is in trouble — big trouble. She has come under FBI investigation for multiple offenses she has been accused of committing over the past decade.
If the accusations are true, then she is a serial lawbreaker, and she will face serious jail time. If true, this would be arguably the greatest crime spree of an elected Representative in American history.
That wasn’t intended to be a hyperbolic statement; it is a fact given the crimes for which she is being investigated.
The Department of Justice has assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apparent, astonishing spree of felonies from 2009 to 2017. That is according to journalist David Steinberg.
The Department of Justice isn’t the only government agency who is investigating Omar. The Department of Education and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have also taken up the case.
The Department of Education is investigating Omar for possibly committing student loan fraud, and she is being accused of bigamy and perjury.
Steinberg reported, “Omar received a degree in June 2011. According to Omar herself, she and her husband then permanently separated in June 2011. The marriage’s start and end coincide with the start and end dates of Omar’s NDSU enrollment.
Incredibly—according to address records, and a statement from Omar herself—she was also still living with her first husband, and their two kids, throughout this second marriage.
In 2017, Omar finally filed for divorce. Under penalty of perjury, she submitted a nine-question form to the court attesting to having lost all contact with her NDSU husband in June 2011.
Dozens of verified social media posts, photos, and even a 2016 interview with the NDSU husband indicate otherwise. It appears Omar perjured herself eight times answering those nine questions.”
Oops… That’s not all.
Steinberg continued, ”Rep. Omar’s 2009 marriage appear to give probable cause to investigate Omar for eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy.
To be clear: The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history.”
Add to these charges the fact that she was found to have violated campaign finance laws. In April, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board opened an investigation looking for campaign finance violations she is alleged to have committed.
Minnesota Representative Steve Drazkowski referred Omar to the Campaign Finance Board, alleging she spent close to $6,000 in campaign funds for personal use.
Rep. Omar was accused of spending the money to pay for a trip to Boston and Estonia.
She was accused of spending campaign funds to pay for her divorce.
When Omar was asked about the allegations in a debate, she responded by calling Rep. Drazkowski a “bigot.”
Of course she did. She likes to play the victim card any time someone has the audacity to question her actions or rhetoric.
Ilhan Omar possesses the trifecta of victimhood: she is a woman, she is Islamic and she is an immigrant.
It will only be a matter of time until plays the victim card again now that she has been found to have violated campaign finance rules.
Ilhan Omar also has tax issues. She has a history of being dishonest when filing her tax returns. The discrepancy in question revolves around a joint tax return she filed with a man she was not married to.
Fox News reported, “Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns in 2014 and 2015, when Omar was reportedly married to another man. Omar engaged in a civil marriage with Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, and the couple separated in 2011 without formally petitioning for divorce until 2017.”
Last time I checked, you can’t file jointly with a man you’re not married to.
This report lends some credence to the allegation that Omar was married to two men at the same time — one of which may have been her brother.
That’s right — she has been rumored to have been married to her brother. Sick! Omar has been a vocal critic of ICE for years. Now we know why.
Many journalists are afraid to report this story out of fear that they will be called “Islamophobic” or having the audacity to report the facts. That has how she has gotten away with the aforementioned crimes for so long: She plays the victim card.
The fact that she is Islamic is irrelevant to the accusations against her. A criminal is a criminal no matter what religion or gender they are. American Justice requires that justice be blind. Will this justice system soon carry out justice against Rep. Ilhan Omar?
