Democrats Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., may have committed a Congressional first that she doesn’t want on her record.
Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress and the first American of Somalian heritage, is also reportedly the first congresswoman investigated for marrying her biological brother and committing a string of federal and state crimes, reports say.

Controversy has long swirled around the Minnesota Democrat’s second marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Omar married Elmi in England and may have used this status to ease his immigration to the United States as a student, a form of marriage fraud and immigration fraud.
Furthermore, the forms she signed during the process carry the penalty of perjury.
Rep. Omar “perhaps perjured herself eight times with her nine answers” on federal forms, according to investigative reporter David Steinberg.
The penalty is up to five years in prison for each offense.

U.S. officials opened a federal case last October, Steinberg tweeted, when he gave investigators “pivotal, never-published” information that Omar “committed numerous felonies.”
BIG Ilhan Omar update:
I know you are disgusted by @IlhanMN’s lawless behavior lately, and her anti-Semitic demand we only sanction Israel, not Turkey and Iran.
So here's some good news.
Several weeks ago, I gave pivotal, never-published info on @IlhanMN to the FBI. (1/x)

This week the New York Post confirmed that two FBI agents spent hours reviewing the evidence.
Three federal agencies in total may be investigating Omar: the FBI, ICE, and the Department of Education.

Omar’s marriage history, which stands at the center of multiple felony claims, reads like a soap opera.
Omar married and had her first two children with Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 in an Islamic marriage, but they reportedly divorced in 2008.
The next year, she legally married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen that investigators suspect is her brother. According to Omar they separated in 2011, when she moved back with Hirsi and had their third child in 2012. But she didn’t legally divorce Elmi until 2017.
In 2014 and 2015, Omar filed joint tax forms as the wife of Hirsi — while she was still legally married to Nur Said Elmi.
Reports later began to surface that Elmi and Omar were brother and sister, who were married on paper to circumvent immigration laws.
Traditional Somali names use the person’s first name, their father’s name, and their grandfather’s name, according to The Daily Caller.

That adds fuel to the claim that Omar and her second husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, have the same father.
Why would Ilhan Omar allegedly marry her brother? Federal officers believe it eased immigration and gave both to access federal benefits.
Elmi moved from the UK to the U.S. to attend North Dakota State University in 2009. Ilhan attended, too. Their marriage overlaps with their enrollment in college.
But Steinberg says he has evidence that Ilhan lived with her then-husband Elmi, her ex-husband Hirsi and their two children during that time.
The siblings’ reported sham marriage let them commit “student loan fraud,” a new federal complaint says.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton lodged a formal complaint, alleging deep criminal wrongdoing, with the chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics, David Skaggs.
“Substantial, compelling and, to date, unrefuted evidence has been uncovered that Rep. Ilhan Omar may have committed” multiple “crimes in violation of both federal law and Minnesota state law,” the complaint reads, including “perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud.”
If true, Omar’s actions would constitute the most “extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history,” said Steinberg.
Congresswoman Omar may have committed perjury while divorcing Elmi, as well. She claimed she had no way to contact Elmi, and the last she knew of his whereabouts he was living in London in June 2011.
The New York Post says Elmi was “living just 2.6 miles away from her at an apartment in downtown Minneapolis.”
Then, there’s evidence she met Elmi during the time she swore, under penalty of perjury, that she had no way of contacting him.
The evidence came from an unimpeachable source: Congresswoman Omar herself.
Omar snapped photos of herself posing with her “ex-husband” Elmi during a 2015 trip to London — and posted them on an Instagram account she operates under the nickname “hameey.”
Conservative commentators expressed their joy that the rumors surrounding Omar are finally under federal investigation.
Been hearing this for too damn long. Time for some indictments.

Since the moment Ilhan Omar was elected into Congress, controversy has followed her wherever she has gone.
From describing 9/11 as “some people, did something” to the accusations of her marrying her brother to commit immigration fraud — she has NO PLACE in Congress!

The issue has long been on Republicans’ radar. President Donald Trump raised the possibility of a federal investigation last July.
“I hear she was married to her brother,” he told reporter Emerald Robinson. “I don’t know, but I’m sure there’s somebody who will be looking at that.”

The sordid affair may become a major embarrassment for President Trump’s enemies during an election year. The Democratic Party has closely tied its future to “The Squad,” led by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. Its second-most conspicuous member is Ilhan Omar.
The investigation could be a historic first of humiliating proportions come November.
