Ilhan Omar finds herself under investigation by at least three federal agencies. Here’s a timeline of her crime spree.
The FBI has been trying to unweave the complex web of felonies committed by House Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5th) and have been outsourcing the heavy load to multiple federal agencies including ICE and the U.S. Department of Education.
The investigation began back in October of 2019 when Rep. Steve Drazkowski filed a complaint with the Department of Justice about the overwhelming evidence that had been accruing against Omar indicating she committed a multitude of felonies related to her immigration to the U.S. and her education. All of which continue to be undisputed.
The allegations remain that Omar conducted a rash of crimes including immigration, student loan, tax and marriage fraud, perjury, bigamy, incest, and even international spying. She has already been convicted of campaign finance violations.
It’s complicated, but with the multitude of evidence compiled against her, here it is broken down into a timeline spanning over two decades:
In 1991, a child by the name of Ilhan Nur Said Elmi and her family, consisting of her father and four siblings, fled a brutal civil war in Somalia and sought refuge in a camp in Kenya where they remained until 1995.
In 1995 that same child was granted asylum under the Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP). Part of the RRP requirement: that Ilhan Nur Said Elmi would be relocated to the U.S. to stay with family members who were already established in the United States, the Omars.
Upon her arrival the America, her name was changed on immigration documents to Ilhan Abdullahi Omar. She arrived with her father, Nur Said Elmi Mohamed and genetic sister Sahra Nur Said Elmi. Their names were also changed, to Nur Omar Mohamed and Sahra Noor.
Also in 1995, three of her genetic siblings were granted asylum in the U.K and their names were not changed; Leila Nur Said Elmi, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
In 2000, 17 year-old Ilhan Omar became a U.S. citizen.
In 2002, by her own admission, Ilhan Omar marries Ahmed Hersi in a religious ceremony and although they applied for a marriage license, it was never finalized. The couple have two children together. She illegally files joint tax returns despite not being legally married.
In 2003, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi was living with Ilhan Omar’s father in Minneapolis where he graduated from high school.
In 2009, Ilhan Abdullahi Omar was a U.S. citizen and married a U.K. citizen and her biological brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi. The newlyweds moved to Fargo, North Dakota with her religious husband and enrolled at North Dakota State University while taking advantage of student loan and grant options for married persons.
In 2010, Omar and both husbands moved to a second address together in North Dakota.
In 2011, Ilhan Omar graduated from North Dakota State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science and made claims that this was the moment that her relationship with her legal husband and genetic brother, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, ended. However, a plethora of social media posts prove that this was a lie and she perjured herself in court documents.
In 2012, Omar had her third child with Ahmed Hersi.
In 2016 during the Minnesota FLA primaries, a writer for the Star Tribune, a local (and very liberal) news organization in the state uncovered evidence about rumors that were being spread by the Minneapolis Somali community that alleged Omar is still married to her genetic brother in order to obtain immigration rights as well as student loan benefits. This remains uncontested.
In 2017, Ilhan Omar filed for divorce from Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, claiming that she has had no contact with him for the past six years and does not know where to find him. But uncovered social media posts, which are now deleted but archived, show that they were in close company for the entire period.
In June of 2019, the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board ruled that Omar had violated spending rules and ordered the congresswoman to pay back $3,500 as well as $500 as a civil penalty.
In November of 2019, a court in Florida is hearing evidence and testimony that Omar “was recruited by a foreign government, received funding from a foreign government, and passed sensitive information through intermediaries to Iran.”
As confirmed and reported by The Jerusalem Post:
“The claims came during testimony by Kuwati-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was giving evidence in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani. The Qatari emir’s brother stands accused of ordering his American bodyguard to murder two people, and of holding an American citizen hostage. His deposition, obtained by Al Arabiya English, was authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs…
“According to his sworn deposition, the three officials told him: ‘If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends.’”
After such an obvious history of corruption and law violations, it’s a wonder why Democrats would let such a visible Muslim Representative come under scrutiny now. Simply, Omar has become a liability to the Democratic Party.
Her blatant anti-Semitism hasn’t gone unchecked. As attacks against Jewish people are on the rise, the DNC would love to continue their attempts to link the violence to President Trump as they have indicated that his (very Jewish) senior advisor Stephen Miller is an anti-Semite.
However, their own party is facing similar accusations as events like a viral video of Omar laughing while Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) discussed U.S. casualties from the Iraq war. The DNC is still a money-motivated machine and the damage control required by Rep. Nur Said may no longer be worth the optics of a Muslim candidate.
