“Some people did something” that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) wants to know more about. As much as she may want to hide it, Minnesota Congressman Ilhan Omar’s possible felonies committed between 2009 and 2017 are being reviewed by the FBI.
Since first being presented possible evidence by Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski, the agency has since contacted two federal agencies, the Department of Education and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to expand their review of possible crimes committed by Omar.
The Blaze first reported in October 2019 that the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge (SAC) to review the reported possible felonies, which include student loan fraud, multiple instances of perjury, marriage fraud, immigration fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and bigamy.
The latest development in the news of a possible FBI investigation of Omar was published January 16 by The Blaze’s David Steinberg who confirmed that the FBI had in fact since contacted the Department of Education and ICE. This week, the New York Post and National Review picked up the story, noting that Omar faces a felony offense punishable with a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000 if she is found guilty of committing marriage fraud. The Post reported that Omar did not respond to a request for comment.
Ironically, or perhaps not so ironically, Omar has in the past called for the abolition of ICE. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from North Dakota State University in 2011, and according to the Daily Wire, Congressional filings show she owes between $15,001 and $50,000 in student loans. As noted by the Daily Wire, although she now has a congressional salary of $174,000, she has still not paid off her student loan debt.
