Investigative journalist David Steinberg says that the FBI and ICE appear to be investigating Rep. Ilhan Omar.
Steinberg took to Twitter where he discussed the potential investigation and linked to an article that he wrote for The Blaze.
BIG Ilhan Omar update:
Federal investigators finally seem to be reviewing the overwhelming evidence against @IlhanMN.
And at least THREE agencies are considering her case:

According to Steinberg’s tweets, back in October of 2019 the FBI held a “formal meeting” in regards to evidence presented against Ilhan Omar in regards to a reported “fraudulent marriage.”
After that meeting, the FBI reportedly shared the information with two agencies: ICE and the Department of Education Inspector General.
Steinberg claims that the Department of Education Inspector General is now considering evidence that Ilhan married a UK citizen in ’09 perhaps to commit student loan fraud, or other education fraud.
Also, Steinberg says that ICeE is also considering evidence that Ilhan Omar married a UK citizen in ‘09 perhaps to commit immigration fraud.
And while government agencies rarely (if ever) admit that they’re investigating anyone, it is significant that the FBI handed off the information.
On Oct. 30, I reported that the Department of Justice had assigned an FBI Special Agent in Charge, or SAC, to review Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apparent, astonishing spree of felonies from 2009 to 2017.
Minnesota state Rep. Steve Drazkowski (R) had previously filed a complaint on the matter with the Minnesota District of the Department of Justice. That office — headed by U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald, a 2018 Donald Trump appointee — directed the FBI to review the complaint. An FBI SAC formally met with Rep. Drazkowski, and others, in mid-October to receive a prepared file of evidence and related information.
I can confirm that the FBI has taken additional steps since this October meeting.
In October, the FBI SAC stated that the wide range of criminal activity suggested by the evidence against Rep. Omar may lead the FBI to expand the review to other federal departments. In such situations, the SAC continued, the FBI often acts as a hub — sharing evidence, or coordinating a joint investigation, with several other investigative agencies.
Indeed, this has since occurred.
At least the following two federal agencies were contacted by the FBI with information regarding Rep. Omar. The FBI then placed the October meeting attendees in touch with selected investigators within these two agencies. [The Blaze]

Hopefully at some point a group like Judicial Watch will get heavily involved in the Ilhan Omar scandal and really start forcing bold moves on this.
Because we know that the lying fake news media will not cover or investigate this at all.
