Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has paid her husband’s political consulting firm around $2.8 million during this election cycle so far, Fox News reported on Tuesday. The information comes from the Federal Election Commission.

Omar’s office responded to this reporter’s request for comment that she and her staff are out of the office in observance of Veteran’s Day.

The Democratic congresswoman’s campaign reportedly hired the firm of her husband, Tim Mynett, for the purposes of cable advertising, “digital consulting,” video production and editing. Omar easily won re-election last week in her U.S. House district.

From the beginning of 2019 to July 22, 2020, the Minnesota member of “The Squad” paid her husband’s firm, E Street Group LLC, $1.6 million, according to the report. In the third quarter following that, she reported another $1.1 million, with $27,000 reported in the subsequent weeks, Fox News reports.

Apparently, that $1.1 million comprised 70% of her campaign spending that quarter, according to Fox News.

Omar has previously come under fire for paying her husband’s firm. When she married Mynett in March of this year, Omar had already paid his firm $500,000 and was facing scrutiny for it. At the time, she posted a long thread on Twitter where she tried to explain herself and the situation, saying that her campaign began working with Mynett’s firm long before they began seeing each other romantically and that a top FEC campaign attorney okayed their relationship.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
