FBI Reviewing Allegations Ilhan Omar Married Her Brother

January 28, 2020

The FBI is reportedly “reviewing” an allegation that Somali-born radical Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother in an effort to help him obtain a green card and study in the United States, according to Breitbart News.

In October, FBI agents met with a “concerned party” who presented documents detailing Omar’s marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009 and discussed rumors that have been circulating for months. Omar previously claimed that she married Ahmed Hirsi in an Islamic ceremony in 2002, separated in 2008, and remarried legally in 2018. He is the father of her three children. Meanwhile she legally married Elmi in 2009, after which Elmi enrolled at North Dakota State University.

Omar formally divorced Hirsi in November in the wake of allegations that she was involved in an extramarital affair with political strategist Tim Mynett.

The Post reports that 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.
