Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch requested an ethics investigation in September 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.
Via Judicial Watch:
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.
But the story does not end there.
The New York Post discovered that Ilhan Omar gave an additional $147,000 to her lover’s firm than was previously known.
The Daily Mail reported:
US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar paid her political consultant and lover almost $147,000 more for services than had previously been known, according to reports.
The payments were in addition to hundreds of thousands of dollars she gave to the company which had already been reported.
Omar’s campaign funneled $146,713 into finance chief Tim Mynett’s consulting firm, ‘The E Street Group’ for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production, records show, reports the New York Post.
That’s how much more the 38-year-old Minnesota lawmaker’s campaign pumped into Mynett’s firm since Peter Flaherty, chairman of the conservative National Legal and Policy Center in October filed an an amended complaint into Omar’s campaign spending with the Federal Election Commission.
