From the Jerusalem Post:
Ilhan Omar denies being ‘Qatari asset,’ witness confirms Jerusalem Post report
The Democratic Congresswoman is said to have passed information to Qatar, which was subsequently handed along to Iran.
Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota-5th) was recruited by a foreign government, received funding from a foreign government, and passed sensitive information through intermediaries to Iran, a Florida court has been told, as The Jerusalem Post confirmed.
Speaking to the Post, the office of the Congresswoman denied the allegations.
The claims came during testimony by Kuwati-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was giving evidence in the trial of Sheikh Khalid bin Hamad al-Thani. The Qatari emir’s brother stands accused of ordering his American bodyguard to murder two people, and of holding an American citizen hostage. His deposition, obtained by Al Arabiya English, was authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs, according to the publication.
Speaking from Toronto by video link, Bender told the Florida District Court that he met with Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari officials.
According to his sworn deposition, the three officials told him: “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.”
Bender testified that the officials asked him to recruit American politicians and journalists as Qatari assets, and that when he objected, was told that several prominent figures were already on the payroll. Omar was described as the “jewel in the crown,” he said.
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,” he added.
This is all sworn testimony delivered in Federal court in Florida.
I bet you have not heard a peep about this on CNN or MSNBC.
They are all too busy reporting on Donald Trump and the innuendo that he was elected to be a Russian asset or Putin puppet or Ukrainian asset or some shit like that, stemming from a provably false dossier paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign.
Here we have testimony that a US Congresswoman was elected to Congress to be Qatari asset, and it’s just crickets.
I cannot say that any of these accusations are true, what I will say is this.
If Trump were a Russian asset, he’s a pretty shitty one. Considering that we have armed Ukraine against Russia and we have fought against Russian interests in Syria.
Omar, on the other hand, really seems to hate America. She had sided with Iran against the US, been critical of the US while being soft on Islamist terrorism, and is vehemently anti-Israel. She also seems to have a history of violating US immigration and campaign finance laws, and yet that never been held to account for that.
It makes more sense that there are powerful enemy forces at work leading Omar to run, protecting her from scrutiny, and influencing the outcome of a Congressional race than it does that there are powerful swinging a national election for Trump.
Again, I have no evidence that this is true. But if past is prologue, anything the Democrats do that’s bad, they project and accuse the Republicans of doing, and Omar has often said that there is strong evidence Trump was compromised by foreign influence.

Fundamental axiom, once again:
It is not the action being taken by the person that causes offense, it is the political affiliation of the person taking action that causes offense.”
Omar is a leftist. Whatever she does is OK because she is a leftist. Simple really.
The same headline could be applied to a point made by Fiona Hill in testimony in Shifty’s committee: Putin was out to damage whoever ended up elected and the Presidency generally, and to destabilize the USA. Clearly he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams in all these goals, with the eager and consistent help of the Democrat party and the Resistance Media. Whether these were working as fellow travelers or merely as useful idiots is at this point an open question.
