Rep. Ilhan Omar’s congressional seat is in jeopardy. The Congresswoman is refusing to deny the troubling charges of bigamy and a sham marriage to her brother after new evidence has come to light. Even the leftist media is throwing her under the bus. Is this the end of her political career? It sure looks that way. You don’t want to miss this.
Rep. Ilhan Omar has long enjoyed a good relationship with the largest newspaper in Minnesota, the Star Tribune. It was the Star Tribune who backed her campaign and refused to ever write anything to question her troubling background.
Not anymore. The Democratic-owned newspaper just threw Rep. Omar under the bus.
“The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Saturday that an extensive investigation into the question of why Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was married to one man but filed a joint tax return with another could not determine whether she had married her brother,” Breitbart reports.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune wasn’t able to conclusively prove the allegation she married her own brother false after a review of her financial and marriage records.
In fact, Omar is now refusing to deny the allegations.
Ilhan Omar swore under oath in a 2017 divorce filing that she hadn’t seen her husband Ahmed N. Elmi, who is also allegedly her brother, in six years and didn’t know anyone who might be able to locate him. She was still legally married to Elmi when she claimed to be married to the father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi.
The Democratic Minnesota Congresswoman swore that she had not been able to locate the man she married — who the Star Tribune says may or may not be her brother — since 2011. She swore that she didn’t know the names of anyone in her husband’s family and that the two had no mutual acquaintances who might know how to contact him.
Well, Omar was just caught in a huge lie that may cost her everything including her freedom.
The Daily Caller’s investigative team just uncovered new evidence on Omar’s ex-husband, Ahmed N. Elmi, “who may or may not be her brother.” We should note Ahmed N. Elmi’s birthdate on the marriage certificate to Omar is the same birthday as her brother who has the same name, April 4, 1985.
And now it sure looks like she knew exactly where he has been this whole time.
Ahmed N. Elmi is pictured with Omar’s daughter he calls his “niece” in 2012. He is pictured with Ilhan Omar in 2014 in London. He also just recently set up Omar’s sister’s professional website.
But she didn’t know where he was?
“According to Elmi’s Facebook profile, after attending college in North Dakota he moved to England and then to Nairobi, Kenya — the same city where Omar’s sister, Sahra Noor, lives and works as CEO of Grit Partners. Grit Partners’ website code contains data that indicates Elmi was involved in the creation of either the company’s website or its Instagram account,” the Daily Caller reports.
Grit Partners’ website contains code generated by its web design software Squarespace that includes certain data that is not visible on the page itself. In a section of the code powering the site’s links to its Twitter and Instagram pages, Elmi’s name is included, tying him to the Instagram account. It says “screenname: Ahmed Elmi” and “UserName: ahmednelmi.”
The hidden code was discovered by David Steinberg, a veteran journalist most recently with PJ Media, who has published significant information about Elmi over the last years.
The Daily Caller added: He has previously published screenshots that appear to show the person with the “ahmednelmi” Instagram was photographed with Omar during the period that Omar swore she had no contact with him, had the same birthdate as Omar’s husband, and held Omar’s baby soon after it was born, calling her his “niece”:
Democratic activist Barb Lickness confirmed to the Star Tribune that the man in one of those screenshots — billed as being from Omar’s Instagram and depicting the now-congresswoman with Elmi in London in 2015 — was the same Ahmed Elmi who was a neighbor of hers in Minneapolis but who never mentioned being married:
Omar requested a “default” divorce from Elmi in 2017, an unusual proceeding used where one spouse has disappeared and cannot be located. Since the process deprives one party of contesting the divorce, it required Omar to swear under oath that she had no clue whatsoever about how to contact him through other people.
On the form above, she swears her “most recent contact” with Elmi was in June 2011 in London and the “last known location of respondent’s employment” was unknown.
She swears the “names and locations of respondent’s parents, siblings, children and other close relatives are as follows: Unknown.”
She swears the “names and locations of other persons who are likely to know the respondent’s whereabouts are: Unknown to me.”
It continues: “I believe that it is not likely that respondent’s location will become known to me, but there is a reasonable possibility that mail will be forwarded or otherwise reach respondent if addressed as follows: No known address.”
The document says, “I have made the following efforts to locate the respondent: Looked for on Social media.”
It concludes: “I declare under penalty of perjury that everything I have stated in this document is true and correct.” It is signed and dated August 2, 2017.
This month, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board fined Omar in an investigation that revealed she filed joint tax returns with another man during her marriage to Elmi. That man also fathered children with Omar both before and after the marriage to Elmi.
Omar “was living with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, throughout her entire legal marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, contradicting the story she tells to explain her multiple marriages,” the Washington Examiner reported based on an extensive review of local records.
“Omar’s sister Sahra Noor was a high-profile executive of the Twin Cities health care nonprofit People’s Center Clinics & Services until 2018. She declined interview requests in 2016. She currently runs her own health care consultancy in Kenya. An e-mail to her was not returned and efforts to call her there were unsuccessful,” the Star Tribune reported.
And what does the Ilhan Omar have to say about all these new allegations? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Her staffers are also refusing to comment on any of these new reports which are going viral all over the internet.
We remember what Omar said to these allegations when she was running for Congress. She issued a statement calling the allegations “baseless, absurd rumors,” and she also accused the journalists of “Islamophobia.” Well, she sure isn’t saying that now.
So, stay tuned and pop the popcorn. The truth is a funny thing. It doesn’t go away and is now coming back to haunt Ilhan Omar, the scandal-plagued Congresswoman from the state of Minnesota.
