Rep. Ilhan Omar has always had some sort of controversy surrounding her ever since she took her seat in the House of Representatives.
She’s been accused of anti-Semitism, disloyalty to America, marrying her own brother, and most recently immigration fraud!
She’s also been found guilty of violating campaign laws!
Yet, she’s always slipped through the grasp of facing up to her corruption – until now.
You see, now Ilhan Omar is facing an ethics complaint, filed by Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch, for charges including “perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.”
Check out the news of the complaint that hit Twitter:
La Corte News has an overview of the complaint Omar is facing:
Judicial Watch has filed a formal complaint against Rep. Omar (D-MN) with the House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics, alleging that the congresswoman has committed perjury and fraud.
The announcement came on Tuesday after an illegal tax filing started raising questions about Omar's marital history. Minnesota campaign finance officials discovered that the congresswoman filed joint taxes with one man while being married to another one. This put Omar under more scrutiny and eventually, more evidence came to light.
The complaint is based on "information gathered from public records, social media postings, genealogy databases, computer forensic analysis, unaltered digital photographs, discussions between the investigative reporters and the subjects of the investigation themselves, and information supplied by confidential sources within the Somali-American community."
Immigration fraud: The conservative watchdog group alleges that Omar's ex-husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, is her brother and that the two married in 2009 as part of "an immigration fraud scheme." The complaint suggests that Omar and Elmi may have financially benefitted from the marriage and notes that it probably helped Elmi get federally-backed loans to study at the North Dakota State University, which he attended with Omar.
The official Judicial Watch complaint read:
Substantial, compelling and, to date, unrefuted evidence has been uncovered that Rep. Ilhan Omar may have committed the following crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law: perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.
Such violations would also breach the Code of Ethics for Government Service, to which all federal officeholders are subject, “Any person in Government service should uphold the Constitution, laws, and legal regulations of the United States and all governments therein and never be a party to their evasion.”) Rep. Omar actions in this suspected immigration fraud, marriage fraud, perjurious statements on her Minnesota divorce filings, and falsifications on her tax returns, merit your immediate investigation.
In the words of investigative reporter David Steinberg: “The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history.”
The evidence developed against Rep. Omar was the result of a three-year-long investigation in both the United States and the United Kingdom by Mr. Steinberg and his investigative reporter colleagues Preya Samsundar and Scott Johnson. It is supported by information gathered from public records, social media postings, genealogy databases, computer forensic analysis, unaltered digital photographs, discussions between the investigative reporters and the subjects of the investigation themselves, and information supplied by confidential sources within the Somali-American community.
Documented-based reporting by Steinberg, et al. has developed the following information: Rep. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar, a citizen of the United States, married her biological brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a citizen of the United Kingdom, in 2009, presumably as part of an immigration fraud scheme. The couple legally divorced in 2017. In the course of that divorce, Ms. Omar submitted an “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” to the State of Minnesota on August 2, 2017 and claimed, among other things, that she had had no contact with Ahmed Nur Said Elmi after June 2011. She also claimed that she did not know where to find him. The evidence developed by Mr. Steinberg and his colleagues demonstrates with a high degree of certainty that Ms. Omar not only had contact with Mr. Elmi, but actually met up with him in London in 2015, which is supported by photographic evidence. Ms. Omar signed the “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” under penalty of perjury. The very document that Ilham Omar signed on August 2, 2017 bears the following notation directly above her signature: “I declare under penalty of perjury that everything I have stated in this document is true and correct. Minn. Stat. § 358.116.”
Of particular importance are archived photographs taken during a widely reported trip by Ilhan Omar to London in 2015, posted to her own Instagram account under her nickname “hameey”, in which she poses with her husband/presumed brother, Ahmed Elmi. These photographs from 2015 are documentary evidence that in fact she met up with Mr. Elmi after June 2011 and before the date she signed the divorce document in August 2017, thereby calling into question the veracity of her claim that she had not seen Mr. Elmi since June 2011.
Rep. Omar’s potential crimes far exceed perjurious statements made in a Minnesota court filing.
Rep. Omar’s conduct may include immigration fraud. It appears that Rep. Omar married her brother in order to assist his emigration to the United States from the United Kingdom. The same immigration fraud scheme may have aided Mr. Elmi in obtaining federally-backed student loans for his attendance at North Dakota State University. Mr. Elmi and Rep. Omar simultaneously attended North Dakota State University and may have derived illicit benefits predicated on the immigration fraud scheme.
