(Liberty Bell) – On Monday, the explosive story dropped that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) campaign team in Minneapolis had been busted on camera in a very suspicious ballot harvesting scheme that very well may be violating federal law.
Well, it appears that Omar’s campaign is getting more than just bad press.
They’re likely soon to be under investigation by the DOJ.
In reaction to the story, President Donald Trump urged the Department of Justice to investigate the pay-for-play ballot scheme, which was revealed in undercover footage obtained by Project Veritas.
“This is totally illegal. Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not??” Trump tweeted on Monday.
“We will win Minnesota because of her, and law enforcement. Saved Minneapolis & Iron O Range!” he added.

In the opening of the damning video from Project Veritas, founder James O’Keefe explains that one Liban Mohamed collected hundreds of ballots, the vast majority from Somali immigrants, in an effort to help his brother, City Councilman Jamal Osman, get elected.
“Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” Osman can be heard saying in the video.

“Money is everything. Money is the king in this world. If you got no money, you should not be here period. You know what I am saying,” he continued.
“Ballot harvesting is real and it has become a big business. Our investigation into this ballot harvesting ring demonstrates clearly how these unscrupulous operators exploit the elderly and immigrant communities—and have turned the sacred ballot box into a commodities trading desk,” O’Keefe says.
“We are showing Americans what is really going on in one of our great cities—but, it’s not me saying—we have the operators on tape saying it all themselves,” he added.
