GOP, Michele Bachmann battle over Huma Abedin-Muslim Brotherhood allegations
- criticism Sen. John McCain said Rep. Michele Bachmann’s allegations that Huma Abedin is aiding the Muslim Brotherhood had “no logic, no merit, and no basis” and need to stop. House Speaker John Boehner also rebutted the claims, saying what he knows of Abedin shows "a sterling character."
- pushback Rep. Bachmann stood by her claim regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and Abedin during an interview. She also defended her questioning of Abedin from critics, saying, “all we did is ask, did the federal government look into her family associations before she got a high level security clearance.” source
