One of the most outspoken voices against Donald Trump in the Democrat party has her own legal problems to deal with, according to new reports.
On Thursday night, multiple outlets reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is now the subject of multiple investigations being conducted by various federal agencies.
About That Marriage
At the center of the probes is believed to be the very shady marital habits of Omar.
According to the most detailed report in The Blaze, at least three departments are now investigating the controversial congresswoman.
Directly as a result of a complaint filed by Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R-MN), the FBI’s special agent in charge has referred the case to other departments to expand her possible criminal behavior spanning from 2009 to 2017.
Possible Student Loan Fraud
The first investigation is with the Inspector General of the Department of Education.
This investigation is looking into possible fraud for student loans.
Omar, while reportedly living with her first husband, was married to another man with a joint address in North Dakota, which is where Omar attended school.
This marriage would end, but not until Omar received her degree.
What has everyone’s ears up on this is that Omar herself referenced living with her first husband while this sham marriage was on the record.
Additionally, the beginning and end of this marriage coincide with Omar’s education (not long after Omar got her degree in 2011, she separated from her husband).
When finally filing for divorce in 2017, Omar appears to have perjured herself at least eight times regarding her interaction and contact with her previous husband.
Possible ICE Violations
An even bigger problem for Omar is her Immigration and Customs Enforcement issues.
This investigation is directly related to the circumstances mentioned above but this is further exacerbated by Omar’s obsession with having ICE disbanded.
Between Omar’s own public statements, social media, and public record, the facts just don’t match up, which many believe is why Omar is trying so desperately to have ICE abolished.
If the agency no longer exists, her problems go away, right? And to this point, the Democrat party has largely dismissed the possible felony violations by Omar regarding student loan fraud and immigration problems.
This, of course, does not even account for the investigations into her finances, where she has already been proven to have violated campaign finance laws.
If The Blaze report is true and there are open investigations, it will be very curious to see what information makes its way to the media during the election cycle and how Democrats choose to defend or not defend Omar as the heat gets turned up.
