Isn’t marrying your brother against the law? Isn’t immigration fraud against the law?

DHS insider: Ilhan Omar won’t be prosecuted for marrying her brother

Evidence of deeper Obama-era corruption of government

By Leo Hohmann, WND, August 5, 2020:

Federal investigators have decided not to prosecute Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for immigration fraud despite the publicly available evidence that she married her brother to gain him lawful status to remain in the United States.

The news that two separate federal agencies have declined to pursue charges against Omar after a months-long probe came from a veteran insider at the Department of Homeland Security.

The case was investigated by the FBI and involved at least one other agency, but the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota, Erica MacDonald, has decided not to prosecute.

MacDonald is a Republican who was appointed to her post in June 2018 by President Trump.

Tasha Zerna, media spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minneapolis, did not answer phone calls seeking comment on the decision not to prosecute Omar. And an email inquiry to the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., was met with the following response from spokeswoman Alexa Vance: “Thanks for your press inquiry. The Department does not comment on any decisions to prosecute or not prosecute.”

Abdihakim Osman Nur, a member of the Somali-American community in Minnesota, was the first person to go on the record with firsthand evidence of Omar’s marriage to her brother. He told the British-based DailyMail.com earlier this year that Omar told him she wanted to get her brother a green card so he could stay and work in the United States. At the time she was married to her first husband, Ahmed Hirsi.

Even President Trump has mentioned the allegations.

“Well, there’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. I hear she was married to her brother. You’re asking me a question about it. I don’t know, but I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that,” Trump said at the White House in July 2019.

Records indicate Omar was married to two men at the same time in 2009, and that one of them, Ahmed Elmi, was her own brother and a citizen of Britain.

The story never gained traction in the establishment media. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has interviewed one of the reporters who has developed the story, Scott Johnson of the Minnesota-based Powerline blog. The New York Post reported in January 2020 that the FBI was investigating the marriage and had met with a source in Minnesota. The source provided “a trove of documents” associated with the marriage.

Omar denounced the accusations as “disgusting lies” by bloggers who were engaging in “Islamophobia.” She refused to address questions on the matter.

Then on Feb. 20, 2020, DailyMail published a story headlined “Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother, and said she would ‘do what she had to do’ to get him papers to keep him in U.S.”

Marriage fraud convictions are punishable by five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

The FBI never officially confirmed it had opened an investigation on Omar, but WND’s insider source at DHS says an investigation was launched but is going nowhere.

“The marriage fraud case was turned down by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Minnesota and in Washington, D.C.,” the source said.

The excuse was that the statute of limitations on the case, five years, had expired.

However, her divorce from Elmi did not occur until 2017.

While not entirely suprising given the makeup of the federal bureaucracy, which remains stacked with Obama-era civil servants loyal to the Democratic Party, refusing such a case marks a complete break with long-established FBI culture, the source said.

It also shows that President Trump still has a long way to go in reforming the FBI under its current director, Christopher Wray.

Trump tapped Wray three years ago to head up the FBI after he fired James Comey.

“Years ago they would love high-profile cases like this,” the DHS insider said.

But not under the current FBI ground rules, which pay more attention to the politics of a case than the facts, said the source.

“This was clear marriage fraud and immigration fraud, that’s a fact.”

The insider said that for the D.C. office to decline to prosecute “is clearly political.”
” Democrats get a free pass on everything.”

What does the lack of action taken against Omar say about the chances Attorney General Bill Barr will announce indictments against former Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan and Andrew McCabe?

“If [Trump] doesn’t get re-elected I can assure you they won’t,” he said.

Biden promises to name Muslims to his inner White House circle

Under a Joe Biden White House, the alliance between the left and Islam only figures to strengthen.

The Million Muslim Votes project recently released a video ad promoting Biden for president, showing the former vice president pandering to Muslims in a clip where he quotes from a hadith and promises to name Muslims to his inner White House circle.

“We’ve got the power, raw power,” the ad boasts, as images of Omar, fellow Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece Linda Sarsour appear on the screen.

Wray’s reluctance to go after a prominent American Muslim like Omar is not surprising. He has always been an establishment guy, evidenced by the fact that he had little trouble being confirmed when appointed by Trump for the top post at the Bureau.

When asked at his Senate hearing if he believed the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links to Trump’s campaign was a “witch hunt,” he stated that he did not.
