Op Ed| Tom Fitton is a rockstar, and the current leader of the conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, the one organization that is doing more than the freaking DOJ to bring the corrupt dems to justice.
This week Judicial Watch requested an ethics probe this past Thursday into Democratic Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar. The topic of the request has to do with her use of campaign funds to allegedly benefit her reported paramour, a Mr. Tim Mynett.
The request was expanded into a more intensive search of Omar after she was the center of previous accusations such as marriage fraud, immigration fraud, tax fraud, and identity fraud. All serious crimes with serious consequences, nevermind likely resulting in the end of her political career, and liberty.
We have been presented with more than enough evidence to suggest that Omar may very well have taken part in a bizzare marriage to her own brother in order to beat the US immigration system.
The Minnesota Representative may have also perjured herself multiple times during her divorce statements.
According to Judicial Watch, there is plenty of evidence to back up a Department of Justice criminal investigation into the Minnesota Democrat.
From 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.
“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’s letter to Chairman Skaggs read.
“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,” stated the letter.
Judicial Watch President John Fitton stated, “Rep. Omar has significant ethics problems, and the House Ethics Committee must act to investigate the serious and substantial allegations against her. Frankly, there’s more than enough evidence for the Justice Department to initiate a criminal investigation of Rep. Omar.”

Via the New York Post:
The revelation of the alleged affair came in Beth Mynett’s divorce filing, first published by The Post, which accused the 37-year-old freshman Minnesota congresswoman of stealing her hubby, Tim.
But Mynett, 38, claimed his wife, 55, pressured him into getting married in 2012 after the birth of their son William in 2006 and said the unhappy marriage broke down because of their different parenting styles.
Tim Mynett and Omar, a married mom of three, have denied the allegations about the affair.
Omar’s campaign has paid Mynett’s E Street Group consulting firm $230,000 — including $70,000 since April 2019 — raising concerns of potential ethics violations.
Judicial Watch contended that something was fishy about the payments — and suggested that Omar was funneling cash illegally to her purported paramour.
“The bulk of the proceeds paid to E Street ($175,371.40) were [sic] funneled to E Street after the November 2018 congressional elections, thereby calling into question the true purpose of the payments,” the group said, adding that the payments could violate federal Election Commission rules.
We spend a fair amount of time covering the actions of Ms. Omar and recounting the accusations against her. It is important to remember that Ilhan, just like all Americans, is innocent until proven guilty by a jury of her peers.
