It was about time she stopped talking…
Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) repeatedly refused to answer questions from a reporter who asked her about a series of fraud allegations that have resurfaced.
“Ilhan, if I could get a moment time, if I could get a moment of your time, could you tell me why you filed illegal tax returns in 2014 and 2015?” The Rebel’s Keean Bexte asked Omar. “Can you tell me definitively or not, is Ahmed Elmi your brother? Is he your brother?”
Omar kept her head down, did not answer, and at one point put her hand in Bexte’s face.
“Can you tell me definitively, yes or no, is he your brother and why can’t you answer that question?” Bexte continued to press. “Why did you refer to him as your child’s uncle on Instagram and why did you lie on court documents saying that you hadn’t seen him since 2011 when in fact you’d been talking to him all the time on Instagram?”
