Ethics Complaint Filed Against Rep. Ilhan Omar; Accused Of Immigration, Tax And Student Loan Fraud

Following an extensive three-year investigation into Rep. Ilhan Omar by investigative journalist David Steinberg, a House ethics complaint has been filed by Judicial Watch calling for a probe into potential crimes committed by Omar and her brother.

According to the complaint, “Substantial, compelling and, to date, 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.

“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.”

Laid out in the complaint, as compiled in Steinberg’s research:

Rep. Ilhan Abdullahi Omar, a citizen of the United States, married her biological brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a citizen of the United Kingdom, in 2009, presumably as part of an immigration fraud scheme. The couple legally divorced in 2017. In the course of that divorce, Ms. Omar submitted an “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” to the State of Minnesota on August 2, 2017 and claimed, among other things, that she had had no contact with Ahmed Nur Said Elmi after June 2011. She also claimed that she did know where to find him. The evidence developed by Mr. Steinberg and his colleagues demonstrates with a high degree of certainty that Ms. Omar not only had contact with Mr. Elmi, but actually met up with him in London in 2015, which is supported by photographic evidence. Ms. Omar signed the “Application for an Order for Service by Alternate Means” under penalty of perjury. The very document that Ilham Omar signed on August 2, 2017 bears the following notation directly above her signature: “I declare under penalty of perjury that everything I have stated in this document is true and correct. Minn. Stat. § 358.116.”

Of particular importance are archived photographs taken during a widely reported trip by Ilhan Omar to London in 2015, posted to her own Instagram account under her nickname “hameey”, in which she poses with her husband/presumed brother, Ahmed Elmi. These photographs from 2015 are documentary evidence that in fact she met up with Mr. Elmi after June 2011 and before the date she signed the divorce document in August 2017, thereby calling into question the veracity of her claim that she had not seen Mr. Elmi since June 2011.

Rep. Omar’s potential crimes far exceed perjurious statements made in a Minnesota court filing.

Rep. Omar’s conduct may include immigration fraud. It appears that Rep. Omar married her brother in order to assist his emigration to the United Stated from the United Kingdom. The same immigration fraud scheme may have aided Mr. Elmi in obtaining federally-backed student loans for his attendance at North Dakota State University. Mr. Elmi and Rep. Omar simultaneously attended North Dakota State University and may have derived illicit benefits predicated on the immigration fraud scheme.

The State of Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board has already determined that Rep. Omar violated state campaign finance laws for improper use of campaign funds. She was forced to reimburse her campaign thousands of dollars. More significantly, the Board discovered that the federal tax returns submitted by Rep. Omar for 2014 and 2015 were filed as “joint” tax returns with a man who was not her husband, named Ahmed Hirsi, while she was actually married to Ahmed Elmi.

Under federal law, specifically, 26 U.S. Code & 7206.1, “Any person who willfully makes and subscribes any return, statement, or other document, which contains or is verified by a written declaration that it is made under the penalties of perjury, and which he does not believe to be true and correct as to every material matter … shall be guilty of a felony and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not more than $100,000 ($500,000 in the case of a corporation), or imprisoned not more than 3 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution.” –Judicial Watch

Flowchart (via PowerLineBlog)

Steinberg sums up the evidence (also via PowerLineBlog):

  • Verifiable UK and U.S. marriage records
  • Verifiable address records
  • Time-stamped, traceable, archived online communications (Convictions and settlements based upon social media evidence are commonplace, Anthony Weiner being a notable example)
  • Background check confirmations of SSNs and birthdates
  • Archived court documents signed under penalty of perjury
  • Photos which can be examined to rule out digital manipulation
  • The 2019 Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board investigation, which found Omar filed illegal joint tax returns with a man who was not her husband in at least 2014 and 2015
  • Three years’ of evidence published across many articles — none of which has been shown to be incorrect, or have even been challenged with contradictory evidence from Rep. Omar or any other source
  • Perjury evidence that stands on its own — regardless of whom she married:
    • Long after June 2011, she was clearly in contact with the only man in either the U.S. or the UK with the same name and birthdate as the man she married. She was clearly in contact with several people who were in contact with him.
    • Further, Preya Samsundar did contact him, published how she managed to contact him, and published his email admitting to being photographed with Omar in London in 2015. To be clear: Omar was legally married to an “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi” at the time she was photographed next to a man who admits his name is Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and that he is in the photo.
    • Samsundar published all of this information on how to contact Ahmed Nur Said Elmi a few months before Omar swore to that nine-question court document.
  • Rep. Omar has refused all inquiries from her constituents, elected officials, and media outlets to provide any specific evidence contradicting even a single allegation suggested by three years of now-public information.
  • In fact, Omar has responded by making information less available:
    • In August 2016, after Scott Johnson and Preya Samsundar posted the allegations, Omar’s verified social media accounts were taken offline.
    • Ahmed Nur Said Elmi’s social media accounts were also taken offline.
    • When the accounts returned, a large amount of potentially incriminating evidence had verifiably been deleted.
    • I found and published at least ten additional “before and after” instances of evidence still being deleted in 2018.
  • Omar has released carefully worded, Clintonian statements that denigrate those seeking answers from her as racists. Yet she has repeatedly refused to answer questions or issue anything other than public relations statements.
  • I have a large amount of information that we have not published for reasons including the protection of sources.

According to Steinberg, “I believe Scott Johnson, Preya Samsundar, and me, with our three years of articles, columns and posts, have provided more than enough evidence to give law enforcement authorities probable cause to open an investigation. Now would be the chance for law enforcement, and especially for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s House colleagues, to make a sincere stand against corruption and for the uniform application of the law.”

  1. If this does not push this issue over the edge, then there is something really wrong with our system of justice. She needs to be kicked out of congress, fined, citizenship revoked, deported. In that order. I dont even want her to go to prison. I dont feel like the US should have to pay any more for this anti American bitch! Just get her out!

    1. I think all American Patriots feel the same way you do, I certainly do she needs to be deported to another country that’s muslim. If she was deported to a muslim country, she would be afraid to open her foul mouth because she could stoned o death.3maw

    2. The only way I see this illegal paying $2860. A MONTH RENT is thru FRAUD. Also she was elected because there was no one else on the ballot to vote for. She never had signed petitions to be able to put her name on the ballot. So we should look into how her name ever was placed on the ballot. It has to be by FRAUD also.

  2. This woman needs to be investigated to see what was going on.When someone tries to ask her any questions all she ever does is complain that they are being racist because she is a woman of color and can do whatever she wants to do.

  3. As an immigrant myself, I’m deeply troubled by this woman and her criminal behavior. If I would have done any of these misdeeds I would still be sitting in jail! She is in Congress and what has she accomplished other than making anti-Semitic Rants? Is America still a Country of Laws or has everything been whitewashed for some?? Even Al Franken is being brought to the forefront again and next thing we know, the #metoo movement is dead and buried and the wrong doers exonerated?

  4. The color of ones skin or their sexual identity does not give anyone the right to break laws nor ignore them. Pointing out the truth is not being racist. Its just a smokescreen accusation to deflect the truth.

  5. SEND HER BACK and send Pelosi and Schmuck Schumer with her since they love muslims so much. Also, send the +3, too!

  6. She comes here as a Somalian refugee and we allow her and her family in. The, she marries her brother to obtain citizenship for him and commits tax fraud. She files tax returns for two years with one man while living with another and claiming to be married to them both? She lies about the Black Hawk down in 1993 misstating the number of casualties we killed as “many thousands” when in fact it was perhaps 312 warlords that were killing her tribe or clan, but says nothing of her countrymen dragging our dead troops through the streets. She attended a US University on welfare fraud and now wants to be debt forgiven. She’s anti-American, anti-Jew, anti-God, and anti-white to mention some of her beliefs and ideals. What a scumbag and ungrateful bitch!!! She should be thrown out of the US & back to Somalia; good bye and good riddance I say.

  7. The entire SKANK SQUAD needs 2b thoroughly investigated these scrubs R all traitorous SOCOMS?ISLAMIC SUPREMEST’S U cannot b 1 of those & have loyalty 2 the constitution. There R already some “shady” suspicions about AOC & her chief of staff’s financial dealings. Don’t believe the other 2 R any better equipped mentally ,so
    they probably have many skeletons in the closet.

    1. I now believe Tlaib is the worst after seeing video where she had to be dragged out of a meeting she was not supposed to be at…she was screaming and ranting the entire time. Took several strong men to dispose of her.

  8. Thank you Judicial Watch. Once again, Judicial Watch does what no FBI or other authorized law enforcement agency is bothering to do!!!! Thank you and Support Judicial Watch. And, there is much, much more about Omar that is not exposed in this article. She was a Groupie of a Somalian former president/Islamic Terrorist. When she refused to leave the hotel where he was staying, she got into a fight with police and was arrested. She openly raises money for Islamic Terrorists. Now, we have evidence that shows she not only makes completely false accusations, she threatens and harms innocent people all the time.

    1. Minnesota is now looking into these allegations. I hope it will bust up the socialist squad, and make the demonrats scream.
      Maybe it will divert the socialist media away from our President for a couple of days . . .

  9. According to Wikipedia, JW has made numerous false and unsubstantiated claims that have been picked up by right-wing news outlets. Courts have dismissed the vast majority of its lawsuits.[1 So in other words Judicial Watch has a history of LYING like their LYING NATZI tRump. Little credibility either.
