The progressive Democrat had previously dismissed the allegation as a conspiracy theory.

Ilhan Omar House Ethics Complaint

New reporting from the New York Post Sunday indicates that Ilhan Omar has been reviewed by the FBI regarding allegations the Minnesota congresswoman married her brother in an immigration fraud scheme.

The claim has surfaced several times- first originating from within the American Somali community before being picked up by conservative commentators such as Scott Johnson and Jack Posobiec. Omar has denied it, dismissing it as a right-wing conspiracy theory.

The FBI met with a whistleblower who is supposedly closely aware of the situation in mid-October, receiving documents that prove Omar committed the fraud. Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British national who is said to be her brother. Elmi received a green card from the federal government as a result of his marriage to Omar.

Elmi and Omar would go on to divorce shortly after their marriage. She went on to file for another divorce from her second husband in October, having been conducting an affair with a political consultant.

The FBI agents that met with an anonymous whistleblower promised that the documents he or she presented to them would be passed on to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, without promising that an FBI investigation would be launched over the matter.

Omar has gone on the record in the past stating that the claims she married her own brother are “disgusting lies.

A federal investigation of Omar’s purported incestuous marriage could be what it takes to finally provide definitive answers on the question. Omar could potentially face state or criminal charges related to immigration marriage fraud if the allegation proves to be truthful.

He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

Gardner found his backbone.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.

This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.

“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.

“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.

One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.

Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.

Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.

President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.

Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.

Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.

It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.

The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
