FBI Reviewing Allegations that Ilhan Omar Married Her Brother

The FBI is “reviewing” ongoing allegations that freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother in an effort to help him obtain a green card and study in the United States, as first reported by The New York Post.

Breitbart reports FBI agents met with a “concerned party” in October who presented documents detailing Omar’s marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, reportedly her brother, in 2009.

After the two wed, Elmi enrolled at North Dakota State University. Omar previously claimed that she married Ahmed Hirsi in an Islamic ceremony in 2002, though the couple never married legally.

They finally married, legally, in 2018. But, Omar formally divorced Hirsi in November after allegations surfaced that she was involved in an affair with political strategist Tim Mynett.

If Omar did marry her brother, she could be found guilty of committing marriage fraud — punishable with a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $250,000.
