President Donald Trump brought up the allegations that far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) married her brother to a group of reporters on Wednesday before boarding Marine One for his rally tonight.
A reporter asked Trump a question about Omar and Trump replied: “There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it. … I’m sure that somebody would be looking at that.”
Questions about Omar’s marital history have repeatedly been in the news as multiple news organizations have asked Omar to provide documents and answer specific questions that could clear up any controversy. Omar has refused to answer any questions about the matter.
Last month, the Star Tribune reported that “new investigative documents released by a state agency have given fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
“Sent a list of questions and a request to talk to her siblings and father, Omar declined to do so,” the Tribune added. “Omar declined to make her tax and immigration records available for this report. … Omar’s relatives could also clear the air, but they have remained silent about her marriage … She declined to make her family available for this story.”
