(Natural News) When government watchdog legal group Judicial Watch gets on a case, it’s usually because there is something very, very wrong – which is why Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has been routinely called out for her anti-American and anti-Semitic statements, ought to worry.
According to a press release from Judicial Watch on Tuesday, the group said it hand-delivered an ethics complaint to the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics chairman David Skaggs “calling for a full investigation into potential crimes tied to allegations that” Omar “may have married her biological brother.”
“The evidence is overwhelming Rep. Omar may have violated the law and House rules. The House of Representatives must urgently investigate and resolve the serious allegations of wrongdoing by Rep. Omar,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “We encourage Americans to share their views on Rep. Omar’s apparent misconduct with their congressmen.”
According to the letter:
Substantial, compelling and, to day, 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.
JW pointed out that, if true, those violations also amount to a breach in the Code of Ethics for Government Service, which applies to all federal officeholders. The code states, “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.”
The watchdog pointed out that Omar’s alleged actions include immigration fraud, marriage fraud, perjurious statements on her divorce filings in Minnesota, and falsifications on her tax returns – all of which merit a probe by the Ethics office.
The letter quoted investigative journalist David Steinberg, who has been looking into various aspects of Omar’s past and has managed to uncover some startling evidence.
Omar and brother/husband may also have defrauded the government for education benefits
“The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history,” he recently wrote.
In addition to Steinberg, investigative reporter colleagues Preya Samsundar and Scott Johnson in the U.S. and the U.K. have also been looking into Omar’s past which has included accessing – via freedom of information requests – publicly available data that has allowed the trio to put together a fascinating and disturbing timeline involving Omar and her family as they managed to get out of war-torn Somalia and into the United States earlier this millennia.
As NewsTarget reported recently, for instance, the evidence that Omar married her biological brother to scam the U.S. immigration system seems clear, as amassed by Steinberg and his journalist team:
Questions surfaced again last month during a state investigation of alleged campaign finance violations indicating that Omar filed federal taxes in 2014 and 2015 with current husband Ahmed Hirsi, but she was still legally married to, but separated from, [Ahmed Nur Said] Elmi.
Judicial Watch also said in its letter to the Ethics office that the potential crimes committed by Omar “far exceed perjurious statements” that she made in court filings back home in Minnesota. (Related: New analysis claims that Ilhan Omar committed multiple instances of fraud, perjury and could face prison and deportation.)
It may also include “immigration fraud,” the letter states, adding that she married her brother so she could help him emigrate to the United States from the U.K. In addition, that same fraudulent union may have helped her brother/husband to get federal student loans so he could attend North Dakota State University, where they both attended simultaneously and may have illicitly obtained additional benefits based on the fraud.
JW noted as well that Minnesota campaign finance authorities have already determined that Omar improperly used campaign funds, forcing her to reimburse thousands of dollars.
“We call upon the Office of Congressional Ethics to launch an investigation into Rep. Omar’s conduct immediately,” the letter concludes.
