First Muslim Congresswoman Caught Using Campaign Funds For Divorce


America's first Muslim congresswoman candidate caught using campaign funds to pay for her divorce

 Drazkowski filed a complaint to Minnesota’s Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board, showing them evidence that at least $2,250 had been taken from campaign funds and wired to a family and divorce law firm.

Dailycaller.com reports: Omar has previously faced scrutiny for possible marriage fraud.

 Both Omar and lawyer Carla Kjellberg, who dealt with Omar’s 2017 divorce, denied the accusation.

“That’s absolutely false, I provided legal services for crisis management prior to that, and those funds were for reimbursements for costs on crisis management,” Kjellberg said, according to the Star Tribune.

 If the board finds the accusation has enough evidence, it will interview Omar. Then the board will decide whether to move forward with a formal investigation that could take months, reported the Star Tribune.

 Drazkowski claims that Omar has a “worrisome pattern” of campaign finance violations, according to the report. Omar has been fined a total of $2,250 for three separate violations since May 2017.

 Omar became the nation’s first Somali-American legislator when she was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2016.

 Now she is the frontrunner seeking Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison’s open seat as he runs for state attorney general. But accusations that Omar married her brother to commit immigration fraud have hovered around her after Power Line blog reported on it, according to a 2016 Star Tribune article.

 The blog claimed that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi, the father of her three children, in 2002 and, while still married to Hirsi, wed her brother to commit immigration fraud in 2009.

 Omar denied the allegations of fraud. She said that she applied for a marriage license with Hirsi but they never followed through, and that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, whom she married in 2009, is not her brother, reported the Star Tribune.

“There are people who do not want an East African, Muslim woman elected to office and who will follow Donald Trump’s playbook to prevent it. Ilhan Omar’s campaign sees your superfluous contentions as one more in a series of attempts to discredit her candidacy,” Omar’s team said according to Power Line writer Scott Johnson after he contacted them about the marriage fraud accusations in 2016.

Omar admitted she had not yet divorced Elmi in 2016.

 The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Omar’s communications team but did not receive comment by the time of publication.

I sent out the info yesterday on Adil and also to the Dayton Republican Women's Club. 

The response was a panicked email that all candidates were "this year" "really well vetted", and I was told to call this woman to talk to her about this. They want to shut me up. I have been advised to let them squirm. I put it out there, let it fly where it needs to.

Also, the name of the trucking line with ISIS graphics on it is BATTH. I can't find the truck number. It was a new white semi with extended cab. Looking for license.

Hank, not Henry, ok cool?

 BATTH where what state and city...hello.

Yes, Hank. 

Seen heading N on 70 to Columbus, can't find my info, so that's it, so far.

A friend of mine teaches at a Montessori school in north Dayton. A woman came in and offered to teach Arabic. She thinks this woman might be his wife, but as of now, I don't know if she can find out the name of the woman or not.

Is this the trucking Co Jean?

Yes, that is the trucking company. It was going to Columbus, could be Liberty Township. He was within 30 minutes of that area. Don't know if that is the truck number or not. 

The graphics were CLEARLY ISIS. Dark hooded figure, in black, with upraised (his) right hand, with sword in hand. Repeated on both sides of driver's extended cab. Not real large, maybe 18x18 inches. Bright white truck, relatively new.

Lets find out how many Muslims are running for Congress, and expose them even this Adil Baguirov. Now he is a Muslim or he is promoting Islam.

America is looking like England every dam* day....

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
