FBI Investigating Rep Omar For Marrying Her Brother: Report


Pro-tip: if you wanna go into politics, don't marry your brother.

That's the lesson Rep Omar is learning right now.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating Rep. Ilhan Omar over claims that she married her brother, according to the NYPost.

Ebony Bowden reports:

Two FBI agents held an hours-long meeting in Minnesota in mid-October with a concerned party who handed over a trove of documents regarding Omar’s 2009 marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a source with knowledge of the event said.
At the meeting, first reported by website The Blaze, the agents discussed concerns the Somali-born Democrat married Elmi, a British citizen rumored to be her brother, so he could obtain a green card and study in America, the source said.
The two agents said they would share the information with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the US Department of Education, but did not commit to opening an investigation into the firebrand lawmaker, the source said.
If Omar did marry her brother, she could be found guilty of committing marriage fraud — a felony offense punishable with a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
