This appears to be based on the fact that they are refusing to provide further grist for the mills of conspiracy theorists looking to smear them. Just because someone tells you to go fuck yourself when you demand information from them you have no right to ask for doesn't mean they're "hiding something".

that Elmi (likely) calls Omar's daughters his nieces
We've already discussed the fact that calling someone "uncle/aunt/niece/nephew" in Somali and many other cultures is commonly used to refer to other family members and even family friends. It wouldn't ""kick off" anything in the Somali community. This isn't a piece of the jigsaw puzzle; this is a Wheat Thin you nibbled the corners off and are claiming is a puzzle piece.

and that Omar lived with both of her husbands at the same time.
"Both of her husbands".

Let's say for example that Omar's husband, Hirsi, is bisexual and polyamorous. He meets a handsome, British Somali lad online and tells Omar that he's debating to leave her and go to England. They talk it out and decide that she's okay with him having a boyfriend.

The most practical way for them to all be together, they decide, is for Omar to marry Elmi.

They bring Elmi into the US as Omar's husband and all start to live together. They call Elmi an 'Uncle' to their children and he calls them his nieces.

Pretty quickly, the family determines that this was all a bad idea and Elmi leaves to go live on his own. Eventually, he returns to England after he's done studying at University. Omar and him are still friendly, it's more the Hirsi/Elmi relationship that's off.

The social media links between Omar and Elmi, with him calling her kids "niece" and her dad (for whatever reason) going by a similar name to Elmi kicks off a brother/sister theory among the Somali community, which eventually leads to Omar being investigated and her tax history being discovered.

As a politician, she decides that the whole bisexual + polyamorous husband thing is a bridge too far for her to maintain her political base, regardless of whether they generally vote Democratic. As such, she scrubs all social media connection between herself and Elmi and denies having any relationship with him anymore.

Through this, she'll have generated some false testimony to USCIS during her marriage to Elmi and then further perjured herself during the divorce proceedings but, ultimately, this was all just a load of nonsense brought on by the father of her children and trying to keep their relationship going while the children are young.
Cool story, bro.
