Radical Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar has come under fire several times since becoming a member on Congress one year ago.
Aside from making a slew of anti-Semitic and controversial comments, Omar has been accused of marrying her own brother to commit marriage, tax, and immigration fraud.
And things just kicked up a notch big time after The Blaze reported on Wednesday that the FBI has taken further steps to advance its investigation into the allegations against Omar.
Two federal agencies, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Education, have allegedly been contacted by the FBI in matters related to alleged misconduct by Omar.
The development comes following Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski’s repeated calls and pleas for an ethics investigation into Omar.
Drazkowski and others have alleged that Omar’s 2009 marriage to a British citizen, who they claim was her brother, was entered into for fraudulent purposes.
Last year, Drazkowski called on the United States House Committee on Ethics to investigate Omar’s “sham marriage.”
“No one is above the law,” Drazkowski said during a press conference in July 2019. “We believe the House Ethics Committee can and should launch an investigation immediately.”
After nothing was done, Drazkowski filed a complaint against Omar with the Minnesota District of the Department of Justice.
The Minnesota lawmaker’s complaint prompted a U.S. attorney appointed by President Donald Trump to direct the FBI to take up the case.
The Blaze reports that in October 2019, the Department of Justice assigned a FBI Special Agent in Charge to review the allegations.
Investigators within ICE and the Department of Education have allegedly been put into contact with the FBI.
While all of this has been happening, Omar has also been accused of having an affair with Tim Mynett, a married man who works closely with her campaign.
Omar can't go a week without finding herself engulfed in another disturbing controversy.
