Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Thursday requested an ethics investigation into whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) improperly used campaign funds for her paramour, Tim Mynett.
Judicial Watch expanded their request for an ethics investigation into Ilhan Omar after previously demanding a probe into allegations of marriage fraud, immigration fraud, tax fraud and identity fraud.
There is overwhelming evidence that Ilhan Omar married her own brother to defraud US immigration. She also may have perjured herself several times in her divorce statements.
Judicial Watch says there is enough evidence for the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation into Ilhan Omar.

Judicial Watch announced today that it hand-delivered a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics calling for further investigation of Rep. Ilhan Omar over new allegations that her alleged lover, Tim Mynett, received nearly $230,000 from her campaign since July 2018. The latest letter supplements Judicial Watch’s July complaint demanding an investigation of alleged marriage, immigration, tax, and other fraud related to the allegation that Rep. Omar had married her brother.
The new campaign finance allegations arise as a result of divorce filings alleging the affair between Mr. Mynett and Rep. Omar.
“Specifically, in a divorce action, Dr. Beth Mynett of Washington, D.C., has accused her husband, political consultant Tim Mynett, of having an affair with Rep. Omar during which Mr. Mynett’s firm, E Street Consulting LLC, and Mr. Mynett directly, received nearly $230,000 from Rep. Omar’s campaign since July 2018,” Judicial Watch said in its letter to Chairman Skaggs.
“The bulk of the proceeds paid to E Street ($175,371.40) were funneled to E Street after the November 2018 congressional elections, thereby calling into question the true purpose of the payments,” the letter said.
“Rep. Omar has significant ethics problems, and the House Ethics Committee must act to investigate the serious and substantial allegations against her,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Frankly, there’s more than enough evidence for the Justice Department to initiate a criminal investigation of Rep. Omar.”
Don’t hold your breath because David Skaggs, Chairman of the Board of the Office of Congressional Ethics, is a Democrat.
