There is no doubt that Ilhan Omar was duly elected to Congress, seated, and appointed by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to serve on the House Budget Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee, where she also serves on the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights and International Organizations and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. In addition, Omar also serves on the House Education and Labor Committee, where she is a member of the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development and the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections.

However in various publications, some with voluminous documentation, it has been alleged that there is enough “probable cause” –  certainly more than existed with the Donald Trump-Russia collusion allegations – to open an FBI investigation into eight instances of perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, up to eight years of state and federal tax fraud, two years of federal student loan fraud, and even bigamy." Including the fact that Omar may not even be her true family name.

For those wanting a rather comprehensive summary of the allegations along with documentary evidence, you may wish to read the following articles which certainly have more verifiable substance than the Democrat’s bogus Steele dossier.

It is her service on the House Foreign Affairs Committee that is most troubling…

From her own words, Omar, if that is her name, appears to be anti-America, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and has troubling connections with terrorists. So does she have a security clearance and does she get classified intelligence briefings that may be useful to our enemies?

Rules of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, 116th Congress
(Adopted January 29, 2019)

20. Access to Classified Information

(a) Authorized Persons. In accordance with the stipulations of the Rules of the House of Representatives, all Members of the House who have executed the oath required by clause 13 of rule XXIII of the House of Representatives shall be authorized to have access to classified information within the possession of the Committee.

The decision on whether a given staff member has a need to know will be made on the following basis:

Upon the written request of a Committee Member and with the approval of the Chairman in specific instances, a designated person may be permitted access to other classified materials. Designation of a staff person shall be by letter from the Committee Member to the Chairman.

(d) Handling. Materials classified Confidential or Secret may be taken from Committee offices to other Committee offices and hearing rooms by Members of the Committee and authorized Committee staff in connection with hearings and briefings of the Committee or its subcommittees for which such information is deemed to be essential. Removal of such information from the Committee offices shall be only with the permission of the Chairman under procedures designed to ensure the safe handling and storage of such information at all times. Except as provided in this paragraph, Top Secret materials may not be taken from approved storage areas for any purpose, except that such materials may be taken to hearings and other meetings that are being conducted at the Top Secret level when necessary. Materials classified Top Secret may otherwise be used under conditions approved by the Chairman after consultation with the Ranking Minority Member.

(e) Notice. Appropriate notice of the receipt of classified documents received by the Committee from the Executive Branch will be sent promptly to Committee Members through the Survey of Activities or by other means.

In no event shall classified information be discussed in a non-secure environment. Apparent violations of this rule should be reported as promptly as possible to the Chairman for appropriate action.

(h) Other Regulations. The Chairman, after consultation with the Ranking Minority Member, may establish such additional regulations and procedures as in his judgment may be necessary to safeguard classified information under the control of the Committee. Members of the Committee will be given notice of any such regulations and procedures promptly. They may be modified or waived in any or all particulars by a majority vote of the full Committee.

Bottom line …

When Omar is questioned, she either implies or states that the questioner must be racist, bigoted, or Islamophobic. A dodge that seems to have worked over the years for the members of the Black Caucus. But, now it is time to recognize that it is a serious matter when our enemies may have direct access to a Member of Congress.

How is it that no GOP representative has stood up and requested an FBI investigation of Omar? How is it that no complaint about conduct unbecoming a Representative has been filed with the House Ethics Committee? And, where are the media watchdogs who should be demanding answers?

Just another instance of the progressive socialist Democrats being willing to sacrifice the safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States to pursue a toxic totalitarian agenda rooted in socialism/communism on behalf of a fifth column that seeks to destroy America from within.

We are majorly screwed.
