Rep. Ilhan Omar has been under investigation for a spree of felonies that were allegedly committed between 2009 to 2017, as reported by Scott Johnson of PowerLine.
On October 30th, the Department of Justice reportedly assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review these claims.
A complaint was filed on the matter by Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R).
The Minnesota District of the Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald directed the FBI to review the complaint. Rep. Drazkowski and others met with the FBI SAC in October to receive a prepared file of evidence.
Reports have confirmed that the FBI has taken additional steps since this October meeting.
“The FBI SAC stated that the wide range of criminal activity suggested by the evidence against Rep. Omar may lead the FBI to expand the review to other federal departments,” David Steinberg reported.
At least two federal agencies were contacted by the FBI. The investigation has reportedly expanded into the following two federal departments: 1. Department of Education Inspector General 2. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
The Department of Education Inspector General is reportedly investigating evidence that suggest that Rep. Omar’s 2009 marriage to a UK citizen may have been an attempt to facilitate federal student loan fraud, or other fraud involving higher education.
More information regarding the Department of Education Inspector General investigation:
● Shortly after Omar’s 2009 marriage, the new couple moved to Fargo, North Dakota. Omar enrolled at North Dakota State University in August 2009. Her husband enrolled the following year.
Omar received a degree in June 2011. According to Omar herself, she and her husband then permanently separated in June 2011. The marriage’s start and end coincide with the start and end dates of Omar’s NDSU enrollment.
Incredibly — according to address records, and a statement from Omar herself — she was also still living with her first husband, and their two kids, throughout this second marriage.
● In 2017, Omar finally filed for divorce. Under penalty of perjury, she submitted a nine-question form to the court attesting to having lost all contact with her NDSU husband in June 2011.
Dozens of verified social media posts, photos, and even a 2016 interview with the NDSU husband indicate otherwise. It appears Omar perjured herself eight times answering those nine questions.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is reportedly investigating a number of possible immigration-related felonies. More information on this investigation:
The involvement of ICE with a possible criminal investigation could hardly be of greater political import to Omar.
For several years, Omar has vigorously supported the abolishment of ICE. Her 2020 re-election platform — featured on her campaign site, and pictured below — targets ICE agents with vicious rhetoric that simply must be read by interested parties.
States Omar’s site: “Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is an unreformable organization that has become increasingly militarized, brutal, and unaccountable”…
Rep. Omar now appears to be receiving the scrutiny her “articulable facts” have deserved since August 2016; perhaps a criminal investigation is open.
