Fitton: Judicial Watch is Pursuing Investigation Into Ilhan Omar’s ‘Potential’ Crimes
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton realizes that it becomes necessary to remind people that while the wheels of justice turn very slowly, his organization is still on the case.
He did that yesterday when he sent this reminder tweet:
JW announced it hand-delivered ethics complaint to the House Chairman of OCE David Skaggs calling for a full investigation into potential crimes tied to allegations that Rep. #IlhanOmar may have married her biological brother.

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar’s alleged disregard for the laws of our country, as well as the laws of morality, has been the subject of much conjecture since she was a candidate.
Investigative journalist David Steinberg did a deep dive into candidate Omar’s record and filed four reports that were ignored, or albeit for, by the mainstream media.
(Powerline) In four intensely reported investigative columns — here (August 13, 2018), here (October 23, 2018), here (October 30, 2018), and here (November 5, 2018), — David Steinberg has explored the evidence suggesting that Ilhan Omar entered into a sham marriage with her brother in 2009.
But charges that Omar married her biological brother to defraud immigration authorities is only one of many alleged crimes for which Steinberg presents significant evidence.
Consider the disturbingly inadequate evidence used to obtain FISA warrants on members of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Consider that Democratic representatives have demanded that Attorney General William Barr release grand jury testimony — itself an illegal act.
Yet here we have:
Verifiable UK and U.S. marriage records
-Verifiable address records
-Time-stamped, traceable, archived online communications (Convictions and settlements based upon social media evidence are commonplace, Anthony Weiner being a notable example)
-Background check confirmations of SSNs and birthdates
-Archived court documents signed under penalty of perjury
-Photos which can be examined to rule out digital manipulation
-The 2019 Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board investigation, which found Omar filed illegal joint tax returns with a man who was not her husband in at least 2014 and 2015
-Three years’ of evidence published across many articles — none of which has been shown to be incorrect, or have even been challenged with contradictory evidence from Rep. Omar or any other source
-Perjury evidence that stands on its own — regardless of whom she married:
-Long after June 2011, she was clearly in contact with the only man in either the U.S. or the UK with the same name and birthdate as the man she married. She was clearly in contact with several people who were in contact with him.
-Further, Preya Samsundar did contact him, published how she managed to contact him, and published his email admitting to being photographed with Omar in London in 2015. To be clear: Omar was legally married to an “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi” at the time she was photographed next to a man who admits his name is Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and that he is in the photo.
-Samsundar published all of this information on how to contact Ahmed Nur Said Elmi a few months before Omar swore to that nine-question court document.
-Rep. Omar has refused all inquiries from her constituents, elected officials, and media outlets to provide any specific evidence contradicting even a single allegation suggested by three years of now-public information.
-In fact, Omar has responded by making information less available:
-In August 2016, after Scott Johnson and Preya Samsundar posted the allegations, Omar’s verified social media accounts were taken offline.
-Ahmed Nur Said Elmi’s social media accounts were also taken offline.
-When the accounts returned, a large amount of potentially incriminating evidence had verifiably been deleted.
-I found and published at least ten additional “before and after” instances of evidence still being deleted in 2018.
-Omar has released carefully worded, Clintonian statements that denigrate those seeking answers from her as racists. Yet she has repeatedly refused to answer questions or issue anything other than public relations statements.
-I have a large amount of information that we have not published for reasons including the protection of sources.
-Sources have expressed fear regarding published video and photo evidence confirming threats from Omar’s campaign team. These sources have shared other evidence of threats. I have contacted the federal authorities to share this and other unpublished information. Providing knowingly false information to the DOJ is a serious crime.
I believe Scott Johnson, Preya Samsundar, and me, with our three years of articles, columns and posts, have provided more than enough evidence to give law enforcement authorities probable cause to open an investigation.
Probable cause to investigate Rep. Omar for 8 instances of perjury, immigration & marriage fraud, federal tax fraud, student loan fraud, even bigamy: "Perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history."https://t.co/ms4ZCzeHMR— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) July 19, 2019
Steinberg presented credible evidence and tied it in a neat little bow yet nobody – not the federal immigration authorities, not the State of Minnesota, not the Minneapolis police – no one lifted a finger. Except Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch.
Steinberg was a real whistleblower who willingly identified himself. Yet not a word of concern from Speaker Pelosi.
It’s becoming clear that Pelosi apparently prefers incriminating second and third-hand evidence from anonymous weasels, that can only be discussed behind closed doors.
But I digress.
On July 25th, Fitton announced he had filed an official ethics complaint with the House of Representatives’ Office of Congressional Ethics Chairman David Skaggs.
A search of the OCE website shows that two and a half months later no action has been taken.
These are the people who will vote on President Trump’s impeachment. A corrupt jury protecting their own criminal activity.
