There’s a new scandal every week with Ilhan Omar it seems.
The latest one is another doozy.
According to a new report, there was a court proceeding in Florida, where a high-ranking Canadain official named Ilhan Omar as a “Qatari asset.”
The verified Twitter account of a man who goes by “Imam of Peace” and who is a staunch critic of Omar says he is involved in the lawsuit in Florida and he has “inside” knowledge of this so-called “brewing scandal.”
His video is very interesting, I highly suggest you watch it.

In addition, he wrote this thread a while back.
If you’re seeing articles exposing @IlhanMN as an agent for Qatar. Remember this thread, and who made it, and how many months ahead I was.
I put my credibility on the line. Now the story is beginning to unfold.
See my pinned tweet. My name is all over the legal docs as well… https://t.co/efWZ7f11PL

As it stands now, Omar is accused of being recruited by a foreign government in testimony presented in a Florida court.
According to testimony the Minnesota Democrat was allegedly recruited and funded by Qatar and “passed sensitive information through intermediates to Iran,” according to a report in The Jerusalem Post that has sparked a debate about the credibility of the information.

A spokesperson for Omar, a Somali refugee and one of the first two Muslims – along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – to be elected to Congress, slammed the “outlandishly absurd story” as false. But the testimony was reportedly given in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani, a brother of the Qatari emir, who is accused of holding an American citizen hostage and ordering his bodyguard to kill two people.
The deposition by Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was born in Kuwait, was obtained by Al Arabiya English, and authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Bender told the Florida District Court in testimony via a video link from Toronto that he had met with two senior Qatari officials along with Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad, Qatar’s Secretary to the BEmir for Security Affairs.
“If it wasn’t for our cash, Ilhan Omar would be just another black Somali refugee in America collecting welfare and serving tables on weekends,” the men allegedly told him, Bender testified.
He also noted that he refused a request by the men to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari assets, telling the court that Omar was described as the “jewel in the crown” by the officials who also revealed that other prominent figures were already recruited.
Qatar “recruited Ilhan Omar from even way before she thought about becoming a government official… They groomed her and arranged the foundation, the grounds, for her to get into politics way before she even showed interest. They convinced her,” Bender testified.
Omar allegedly swore allegiance to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan after a 2017 meeting when she was serving as a junior state representative in Minnesota, Bender reportedly told the court. The congresswoman, who has been a vocal critic of Israel, also allegedly passed information to Qatar which ended up being passed on to Iran. Omar came under scrutiny last month when she became the only House Democrat to vote against imposing sanctions against Turkey.
According to the Post’s report on Bender’s testimony, Omar was “actively involved in recruiting other American politicians to likewise work for the west Asian Islamic country.”
“The best thing money can buy is American officials, because they are the cheapest of the cheapest-costing officials in the world,” the officials from Qatar reportedly told Bender. [Bizpacreview]
It’s time to investigate Ilhan Omar and her connections to Qatar and Iran.
Who agrees? #InvestigateIlhan
