Ilhan Omar has quickly gone from being a rising star in the Democratic party to an albatross around its neck. And her life just got more complicated now that she’s headed for divorce court.
Rep. Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks, a longtime friend of the couple told The Post.
The congresswoman’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the source said, is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett.
The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.
The husband allegedly changed his mind after Tim Mynett’s wife last week filed bombshell divorce papers claiming her spouse was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative — with Hirsi said to be angry he had been made to look the fool by the allegations of an extramarital affair.
Her standard tactic any time someone criticized her was to attack them, call them racist, or simply dodge the question.
Now that the ex-husband and father of her children has begun to talk, her standard approach won’t do squat to help shield her from reality.
As Powerline reports:
In the past three weeks I have circled back to interview sources whom I have found to be highly reliable in the Omar saga. They open a window onto the scandals from the perspective of Ahmed Hirsi, her long-time partner and the father of her three children. According to sources, Hirsi is telling friends:
• that he will not go to jail for Omar;
• that while Omar did indeed marry her brother (Ahmed Elmi) for fraudulent purposes, Hirsi did not know at the time that she had married Elmi;
• that Omar is threatening Hirsi he would be in trouble along with her if the truth were to come out;
• that Omar has asked him to state publicly that all is well with their marriage even though it is completely done and finished; and
• that in fact they are living apart and have been divorced under Islamic law (although they remain legally married).
Having humiliated Ahmed Hirsi by her affair with Tim Mynett, Omar now wants Hirsi to perform public relations services for her to suppress the scandal. That is cold.
The Democrats are filling up all their committee time trying to turn over every little rock in the President’s life. But they’ve got someone as apparently corrupt as Ilhan Omar right in their midst, and they dare not say ‘boo’ about it.
They care very deeply about the (alleged) sins of OTHER people.
This is exactly the kind of open hypocrisy that could sink the Dems in 2020.
And they will have only themselves to blame.
