On Tuesday's episode of "The News & Why it Matters," Sara Gonzales, Stu Burguiere, Grant Stinchfield, and Aaron Colen discussed the new controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and her alleged marriage to her brother.

In this clip, the panel addressed a now-deleted tweet Omar posted wishing her father a Happy Father's Day. In the tweet, she referred to her dad as "Nur Said."

Why is this significant? Omar's father, brother, and ex-husband all share the same last name, the panel explained.

"Glenn did a chalkboard on this whole Ilhan Omar marriage thing because, for someone who claims to be Muslim, she is pretty lax on this marriage, relationship thing," Sara said.

Stu explained that because of the potential crimes that may have been committed, Americans have a right to know whether or not Omar married her brother. He added that if Omar broke the law, there are more significant implications surrounding the vetting process used by the Democratic Party in Minnesota.
