Critics have long accused Ilhan Omar of allegedly engaging in one of the worst crime sprees of any elected official in history.
But so far, Omar escaped a serious investigation into her alleged tax, immigration, and marriage fraud allegations.
But that could all change because someone stepped forward with the smoking gun that could land Ilhan Omar in jail.
Ever since Omar ran for Congress in 2018, independent journalists and Minnesota Republicans have long maintained that Omar’s marriage to what she claimed was Ahmed Elmi – Omar’s second husband – was a sham where Omar set up a phony marriage to her brother to win him entry into the United States.
Omar and her aides have blasted these allegations as racist and anti-Muslim smears.
But now a whistleblower stepped forward and provided the first on the record account to back up the allegations that Omar married her brother as part of an elaborate scheme to defraud the United States.
Somali community leader Abdihakim Osman claimed in an interview with the Daily Mail that Omar needed “papers” to get her brother into the country and that when Omar and Elmi married the affair was kept secret as opposed to her marriage to Ahmed Hirsi, which was a major affair with many guests from both families and the Somali community.
The Daily Mail exclusively reports:
‘People began noticing that Ilhan and Southside (Hirsi) were often with a very effeminate young guy,’ Osman said, who spoke in Somali through an interpreter.
‘He was very feminine in the way he dressed — he would wear light lipstick and pink clothes and very, very, short shorts in the summer. People started whispering about him.
‘[Hirsi] and Ilhan both told me it was Ilhan’s brother and he had been living in London but he was mixing with what were seen as bad influences that the family did not like.
‘So they sent him to Minneapolis as ”rehab”.’
This account also adds to the evidence that Omar committed tax and student loan fraud by allegedly being married to Hirsi and Elmi at the same time.
Omar allegedly filed tax returns jointly with both men as well as allegedly committed student loan fraud.
Many Americans have wondered why Omar isn’t under investigation for these alleged crimes.
No one doubts if a Republican Congressman that supported President Trump faced the same allegations, a Democrat activist in the United States Attorney’s office would have an indictment drafted within minutes and FBI agents armed to the teeth with automatic weapons would kick their door in.
But because Ilham Omar is a Democrat, she has so far received a get out of jail free card as the Department of Justice is really the Department of Terrorize Trump supporters.
Americans looking for a fair and even-handed application of justice hope the allegations against Omar reach a critical mass so that Attorney General Barr and other top-level Department of Justice officials find the wrongdoing impossible to ignore, as well as an opportunity to prove the DOJ holds politicians of both parties accountable.
