To a group of determined reporters, there is more than enough evidence to prove that U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar married her brother to fraudulently break immigration laws, and fudged her taxes to cover it up.
Now that President Trump is talking about it, all the left-leaning fact checkers took a go at debunking the claims and came up empty handed. The best they can say is it can’t be ruled out. To Politifact and Snopes, there isn’t enough evidence to prove the claims true either. They don’t consider all the evidence though.
One of the big keys that the fact checkers ignored is that Illhan Omar isn’t her real name either.
One of the three reporters who have been covering this story since the beginning recently published even more supporting evidence and it’s hard for any rational person to deny.
By sifting through public records and social media posts, David Steinberg has put together a compelling case. He publishes his proof in the Powerline blog. You can view all the minute details there but here are the highlights.
One of the reasons that the State Department stopped the Refugee Family Reunification program was because DNA testing, mostly of Somalis, showed that 87 percent of applicants were claiming fraudulent family relationships. Omar was one of them
In 1995, when she was 12, Ilhan, her sister Sahra, and their father Nur Said were granted Asylum in the U.S. as a member of the “Omar” family. The only problem with that is her real name was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.
She married her brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, while she was still legally married to Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi.
With all this evidence floating around, it proves there is at least enough to evidence to start pulling the official records and starting a formal criminal investigation. Ilhan Omar certainly isn’t helping herself any by staying quiet and pretending it will go away.
