According to breaking new reports coming on Friday, Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar is headed for yet another divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi.
In 2008, Omar and Hirsi divorced, leading to an apparent second marriage to another man Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, who some pundits have alleged to have married Omar in part of a migration scam.
Upon her divorce from Elmi, Omar and Hirsi remarried, prompting further speculation as to the couple’s apparent joint filing of tax returns.
Now, reports indicate that Omar and Hirsi have split once again, although details remain scarce.
The controversial Congresswoman has repeatedly been a fixture of press reports since her election during the 2018 midterms, and has since gone on to continuously rebuke President Trump while eliciting outraged responses for a series of racially-charged remarks.
From The Daily Mail UK:
Leftist congresswoman Ilhan Omar and her husband – the father of her three children – have split and are heading for their second divorce, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
The bust-up comes just as critics are demanding answers as to whether she married her own brother in a successful bid to get him into the United States.
Omar has now dumped her current husband Ahmed Hirsi – who she first married in a religious ceremony in 2002 and divorced in 2008 – and moved into a penthouse apartment in one of Minneapolis’s trendiest neighborhoods, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.
But Hirsi, is also spending time at the apartment, which is in the Mill District sector of Minnesota’s largest city, when she is out of town.
Wow,’ said Hirsi, when approached about the split by DailyMail.com outside the complex. ‘I can’t comment on that.
‘I’m sorry, I just can’t say anything,’ he added before driving off in his BMW car.
Omar did not return calls requesting comment from DailyMail.com by deadline.
Hirsi, 39, had been seen leaving the $2,860-a-month home alone at 7:45am and returning to drop off his mother and his younger daughter nearly three hours later.
‘He only goes there when Ilhan is in DC,’ one family friend told DailyMail.com. ‘When she’s in Minneapolis he sleeps at his house.’
Hirsi was noticeably absent when Omar returned to a hero’s welcome at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport last week after being attacked by President Donald Trump.
At the time, he was sitting morosely in a Starbucks coffee shop close to the now-overgrown home that he and Omar shared during their marriage, sources tell DailyMail.com.
Omar told supporters at the airport she would continue to be Trump’s ‘worst nightmare.’
‘His nightmare is seeing a Somali immigrant refugee rise to Congress,’ she said. ‘His nightmare is seeing the beautiful mosaic fabric of our country welcome someone like me as their member of Congress home to Minnesota.
‘He’s threatened because we are inspiring people to dream about a country that recognizes their dignity and humanity. We are going to continue to be a nightmare to this president, because his policies are a nightmare to us.’
Critics have called on the House Ethics Committee to open a case against Omar, a Democrat who was elected from Minnesota’s Fifth District — which covers Minneapolis and a few suburbs — in November.
Republican Minnesota State Representative Steve Drazkowski and the right-wing group Judicial Watch have both called for the investigation.
Drazkowski told DailyMail.com that Omar may be ‘the most crooked politician in Minnesota history.
‘She seems to have a deep and pervasive disdain for the law which is ironic given the fact that she is a United States lawmaker,’ he added. ‘Marrying your brother is a violation of the law in Minnesota.
Omar, 36, won election to the House in November when she trounced her Republican opponent with 78 percent of the vote.
But ever since her victory she has been dogged by controversy, both over her political positions — especially criticism of Israel — and her complicated married life.
As one of ‘The Squad’ of four ultra-liberal women of color — along with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts — she has been frequently attacked by President Donald Trump, who said they should go back to where they came from, even though Omar is the only one born outside the United States.
‘There’s a lot of talk about the fact that she was married to her brother. I know nothing about it,’ Trump told reporters last month.
Omar left war-torn Somalia when she was 8. She lived in a Kenyan refugee camp for four years before coming to the United States and settling in Minneapolis, the largest hub for Somali refugees in the country.
She first married Hirsi in an Islamic ceremony in 2002 when she was 19. Six years later, after two children, the couple said they had ‘reached an impasse in our life together,’ and divorced.
The following year Omar married Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, a British citizen, just two weeks after he entered the United States. He has been identified as her brother by many media outlets, though due to a lack of records in their war-torn country of birth that has not been proven.
