‘This is totally illegal’: Trump shares report tying Ilhan Omar to alleged ballot harvesting scheme

Allegations of an election fraud scheme linked to Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) have caught the attention of the commander in chief himself.

In a tweet just after midnight on Monday, President Donald Trump elevated a report from Breitbart that said James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas had “released the results of an investigation into alleged ballot harvesting” by Omar’s supporters — and they even caught the alleged perpetrators on tape.

According to Breitbart, “[v]ideo footage captured by Project Veritas shows an operative, Liban Mohamed, bragging about collecting hundreds of ballots.”

It seems the Democrats of today are so confident in their ability to avoid prosecution that they don’t even hide the fact they are breaking the law.

An “open secret”

While Omar herself may not be implicated just yet, this is just the latest scandal involving her or her allies that threatens her chances of winning re-election this November. And this time, the accusers have proof.

According to Breitbart, O’Keefe’s team had the cameras rolling when Mohamed started talking about what sounds a lot like ballot harvesting.

“Numbers do not lie. Numbers do not lie,” he says in the clip, according to Breitbart. “You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these; my car is full.”

According to Breitbart, Project Veritas’ video, which is more than 16 minutes long, also features comments from “a whistleblower, Omar Jamal, who called Rep. Omar’s alleged ballot harvesting an ‘open secret.'” Breitbart reported that Jamal indicated the congresswoman “will do anything that she can do to get elected, and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.”

Take a look:

“This is totally illegal”

The video by Project Veritas should already have the wheels turning at the Justice Department, but it remains to be seen if anything will actually be done to hold those involved in this alleged ballot harvesting accountable — or if anyone will dig into whether Omar indeed had anything to do with it. In the meantime, President Trump, for his part, isn’t shying away from making his opinion on the matter known.
