Ilhan Omar Reported to Be ‘Recruited, Funded, Groomed by Qatar’

Candian businessman Alan Bender gave a deposition yesterday in the trial of Sheikh Khaled bin Hamad al-Thani murder plot. Sheikh Khaled is the brother of Qatar’s Emir, the monarch, and the head of state. Sheikh Khaled is accused of ordering his Amerian bodyguard to murder two people, and holding an American citizen hostage. 

According to the Jerusalem Post, Bender’s deposition was obtained by Al Arabiya English and was authenticated by the attorney for the plaintiffs. In the deposition, Bender says that he was told by three Qatar officials “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 was asked to recruit American politicians and journalist as Qatari assets, to which he objected, he was then told many prominent figures were already on the payroll and they described Omar as the “jewel in the crown”.

Bender testified 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.” 

Bender claims that Ilhan passed information to Qatar which was handed to Iran. Also, he stated she is actively involved in recruiting other American politicians to work for  Qatar. According to Bender’s testimony, Qatari officials told him “The best thing money can buy is American officials because they are the cheapest of the cheapest-costing officials in the world”.

Ilhan was already found to have broken campaign finance rules while she was a state representative by the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board.  Judicial Watch has called on the House Ethics Committee to investigate Omar for alleged offenses, including immigration fraud.

Former presidential candidate Herman Cain chimed in with a tweet and an article. “This may or may not turn out to be true, but if Dems are genuinely concerned about foreign entities “grooming assets” like Tulsi Gabbard, shouldn’t they be demanding an investigation into Omar?” See tweet below:

In an article by Daily wire, Alan Bender is quoted as stating that Kamala Harris’ senior foreign policy advisor Dana Schell Smith former U.S. Ambassador to Qatar, was being paid by Qatar through her “fake company in the US” Decibel Strategy LLC. A company that as no public presence services or clients. The Article by the Daily wire is titled “Former Diplomat And Top Kamala Harris Campaign Advisor Acts As Mouthpiece for Terror-supporting Qatar.” The Article brings up Smith’s tweet about Dead Isis lead Al Baghdadi, Seen below. Smith was critical of President Trump’s description of the successful military operation that ended Al Baghdadi’s reign.

Mr. Bender a Kuwaiti born Canadain business seems to have a lot of information on the socio geopolitical environment involving Qatar and U.S. political figures. Time will tell if anything will come of the information Mr. Bender is delivering to the press and in depositions.
