After President Trump called for an investigation into allegations that accused Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) of being linked to a vote-harvesting scheme, the Minneapolis Police Department announced that it is aware and "looking into the validity" of voter fraud claims.

Project Veritas released a video on Monday showing a man by the name of Liban Mohamed bragging about having his car "full" of absentee ballots, all allegedly filled out for then-Minneapolis City Council candidate Jamal Osman, who went on to win his seat the following month.

It is believed that Mohamed worked not only for Osman, but also possibly with Omar. There are also allegations that Omar aide Ali Gainey paid people for their ballots and also collected ballots from the elderly as part of the scheme. It is alleged that the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party is aware of such operations but has turned a blind eye.

When asked about Project Veritas, the DFL and Omar's office called it "a right-wing disinformation outlet," according to the Pioneer Press.
