Investigators with multiple federal agencies are reportedly reviewing evidence of alleged crimes committed by far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar that center around her marital history.
The Blaze reported that toward the end of last year, “the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apparent, astonishing spree of felonies from 2009 to 2017.”
According to The Blaze, “FBI SAC stated that the wide range of criminal activity suggested by the evidence against Rep. Omar may lead the FBI to expand the review to other federal departments”
Its appears that in recent weeks, that’s exactly what has happened as the Department of Education Inspector General and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have reportedly joined the investigation.
Department of Education Inspector General is now involved with relation to evidence suggesting that Rep. Omar’s 2009 marriage to a UK citizen may have been an attempt to facilitate federal student loan fraud, or other fraud involving higher education.
Shortly after Omar’s 2009 marriage, the new couple moved to Fargo, North Dakota. Omar enrolled at North Dakota State University in August 2009. Her husband enrolled the following year.
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.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s involvement is related to evidence suggesting a breathtaking number of possible immigration-related felonies.
The involvement of ICE with a possible criminal investigation could hardly be of greater political import to Omar.
For several years, Omar has vigorously supported the abolishment of ICE. Her 2020 re-election platform — featured on her campaign site, and pictured below — targets ICE agents with vicious rhetoric that simply must be read by interested parties.
States Omar’s site: “Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an unreformable organization that has become increasingly militarized, brutal, and unaccountable.”
The Democratic Party and the media have not batted an eye despite countless apparent acts of criminal misconduct by the freshman congresswoman.
Omar, who has repeatedly claimed that the allegations are baseless conspiracy theories, has refused to answer questions or turn over any documents to the Associated Press or the Minnesota Star Tribune that could debunk what she claims is simply a conspiracy theory.
Omar faces a challenge on multiple fronts, however, with the emergence of a key new GOP challenger whos aim is to take away Omar’s biggest advantage.
Dalia al-Aqidi is a Muslim Iraqi refugee who says she’s tired of hearing Rep. Ilhan Omar play identity politics and believes by doing so, she is dividing America.
Al-Aqidi, who discussed her newly launched campaign in an interview with Fox News, joins a growing field of Republicans looking to take on Omar.
“She needs to be stopped,” al-Aqidi told Fox News in a phone interview. “I truly believe that I’m strong enough to beat her at her own game.”
She explained that in a race between the two of them, Omar would be limited in using her background as a Muslim woman who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia to distinguish them — because they are “basically the same” in that backstory, she said.
Al-Aqidi decried the use of identity politics on the campaign trail.
“Muslims, Christians, Jews are all Americans,” she said, while going on to blast Omar’s past comments that have been labeled anti-Semitic.
“Every time she opens her mouth she says something either anti-U.S. or anti-Semitic,” al-Aqidi said.
Al-Aqidi also suggested that Omar is more interested in raising her own political profile than helping her constituents.
“I am loyal to the country that gave me a chance, gave me a brighter future,” she said, claiming that Omar “continually tries to weaken the country and divide us.”
As for her own platform, al-Aqidi says her main concerns are security at home and abroad, the economy – where she says President Trump is “doing great” – and education.
“I’m ready to fight and I believe that I could win,” she said.
There is a fairly long line of candidates hoping to take on Omar and assuming that the law doesn’t catch up to her first, surely one of her impressive new GOP challengers will unseat the anti-American congresswoman.
