A reporter asked President Trump, “if the administration was looking into possible immigration fraud committed by Ilhan Omar for possibly marrying her brother.”
Trump replied, “Well, there’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it, I hear she was married to her brother. You’re asking me a question about it. I don’t know, but I’m sure there’s somebody who will be looking at that.”
This rumor has been around for a while and one would think it is something that would be easy to disprove if false. You could show pictures of your brother and husband, marriage records showing different names, etc., but we have not seen much effort by the press to clarify this. Reaction to the fact that Trump even acknowledged this reporter’s question look like this:
Saying it is “baseless” is nice, but did anyone actually do any investigation on this? It looks like some people did and it is not some simple political attack. I do not know all the facts, but the guys at Powerline have been looking into this for some time now. This article shows lots of reasons to be suspicious. Too much for me to summarize but check out the whole article on Powerline. Whatever the truth is, this does not appear to be a baseless conspiracy theory . . . or does it?
