CLOSER LOOK: Who is Rep. Ilhan Omar?
Glenn Beck highlighted on Monday the controversy surrounding claims made by online bloggers in 2016, that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother to facilitate his arrival in the United States.
Glenn noted that after the bloggers' accusations hit the internet, Omar set all of her social media accounts to "Private" then deleted all of the alleged information that could have proved the claims to be true.
The Associated Press was the only news outlet to do a little digging, but the AP hit a brick wall when Omar refused to cooperate. According to Omar, all of her families birth certificates were lost during the Somali civil war.
The takeaway here is that we have a sitting member of Congress who may have committed immigration fraud, an alleged perpetrator who has deleted evidence, and an alleged perpetrator who refuses to provide explain, and has gone silent ever since.
Glenn considered a reasonable explanation for why Omar has been silent on the issue ever since, and asked how a news publisher is not all over this or even the federal government.
If that was not enough, Omar then perjured herself when she was asked about the last time she saw her brother/husband.
According to Omar, she had not seen her brother since 2011 and that he was possibly in London. A document proves that Omar filed for divorce in 2017 but that she hadn't seen her brother since 2011.
Finally, photo evidence that pictured Omar and her brother/husband in London, the last known location of her husband/brother, taken in 2014.
