NEW YORK(VINnews) — Al Arabiya English reports that U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar was recruited by a foreign government, passed sensitive information that was then relayed to Iran, and received funding from a foreign government,  according to a sworn deposition made by a Canadian businessman in a Florida court.

In video link testimony from Toronto, Canada to a Florida District Court on October 23, Kuwaiti-born Alan Bender claims to have ties with governments and royal officials across the Middle East including Qatar. Bender claims to have been asked by Qatar’s Secretary to the Emir for Security Affairs Mohammad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Masnad and two other senior Qatari officials to recruit American politicians and journalists to be Qatari assets. He says he objected but the Qatari officials responded by saying that several American politicians and journalists were already on the payroll—most prominently Omar, who was allegedly described as the “jewel of the crown”, according to the deposition.

The three allegedly claimed credit for Omar’s meteoric rise, saying: “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,” according to Bender’s sworn deposition. The deposition was obtained by Al Arabiya English and authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs.

Omar also reportedly met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a key supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, when she was a junior state representative in Minnesota in 2017. According to Bender, Omar met Erdogan and allegedly swore allegiance to him.

Bender claims that once Omar took office, she used her position in the House of Representatives to access sensitive information which she relayed to Qatar, and through them to Iran.

According to Bender’s deposition, Omar’s role in the Qatari influence campaign is crucial. She actively recruited other politicians on behalf of Qatar, he said in the deposition. The Qataris claimed that “the best thing money can buy are American officials because they are the cheapest of the cheapest costing officials in the world,” according to his sworn testimony.

Omar has already been negatively spotlighted for breaking campaign finance rules, as well as for alleged immigration fraud regarding a fake marriage she arranged with her brother to enable him to immigrate. Ilhan has also been named in a divorce case, as Washington D.C physician Beth Wynett charged that Ilhan had been romantically involved with her husband Tim, a campaign consultant who Ilhan had employed.

Bender’s accusations however go much further. According to his testimony, Al-Masnad said that 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.” For her part, Omar cooperated with the Qataris and received cash payments, he alleges in the deposition.

  1. Might be true. I have no idea. On the other hand, there is so much disinformation out there about Ukraine and Qatar that I would like to give the story time to play out.

    • Genius. The FBI, CIA, United States Dept of Justice and most important President Donald Trump doesn’t mention a single word about this? Not a single twits? Sounds like the Kenyan, or Hillary killed 35 people? or Obama gave Billions to Iran? Biden and son are Criminals? and the entire Republican Govt is investigating Russians and Trump? 32 Indicted 8 are jailed. In Reality I am proud of Trump for not even mentioning it. He must have learned his lesson by now that Kenyan,Emails and similar lies did not do good for him.

  2. Yikes. Since you guys were taken over a few months ago this website has really gone downhill. From the most professional unbiased Jewish news site to a crack Conspiracy ywn type site.
    Embarrassing. Also embarrassing are all the inevitable clueless yokels who lap these things up…

    • She has already proven to us all where her allegiances lie. I do not find this report surprising in the least, only that there are interesting details. Yet, this will not prompt anyone in the House to even launch an ethics investigation, since Democrats never do anything wrong. Now that one of theirs might be a foreign agent, and maybe a spy, the idea will be thrown as an accusations of Republicans.

      I wish this turns into an investigation somehow, and terror lovers like her get pushed out of politics.

    • Only before a judge and jury. In halachah there is an isur of choshed bichsaahairim. In civil law, no one is obligated to believe a person is innocent if they believe otherwise.

      I’m wondering why the DOJ hasn’t investigated these allegations.

  3. Let’s see Hillary sold uranium to Russia and got 150 million. Biden with Honda money to end fraud investigation for son who made millions on fathers position and now this. Time to start investigation of entire DNC and cdrms in congress for corruption

    • Why hasn’t the DOJ under the current administration investigated and brought charges against Biden and Obama.

      Clearly, the acts you allege they have committed are violations of federal law.

      What’s stopping the DOJ? Comey? McCabe? Eric Holder?

    • Clinton sold no uranium to Russia and anyone with even a passing understanding of the world uranium market would understand that Putin has no need for US uranium. It is Trump who is a Russian asset.

  4. They will investigate her when there are credible accusations.

    This one is in the same dream as Ukraine meddled in our elections.
