Former GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and four other conservative members of Congress are charging that people with ties to Muslim extremists have infiltrated the federal government.

Sen. John McCain denounced the allegations Wednesday, calling them “sinister” and saying they “need to stop.”

Huma Abedin, the wife and ardent defender of disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, now has her own champion.

The longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was at Weiner’s side as they were photographed with their child by People magazine – looking every bit the perfect young American couple when the image was published online on Wednesday.

But as she stood by her man, Abedin was under attack herself from also-ran GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and four other congressional Republicans, who leveled the accusation that she “may” be infiltrating the U.S. government for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Abedin, a Muslim-American, grew up in Saudi Arabia. She has been among Clinton’s most loyal aides for more than 15 years, and is now Clinton’s deputy chief of staff.

Bachmann’s fellow Republican, Sen. John McCain, was outraged by the allegations – calling them “ugly” and “unfounded” in an impassioned speech on the Senate floor Wednesday.

The State Department has responded to the allegations with very harsh language, calling Bachmann’s charges “vicious and disgusting lies.”

The Arizona Republican said the allegations “are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American, and a loyal public servant.”

He did not mention Bachmann by name, but made his contempt for Abedin’s accusers plain.

“When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation, and we all grow poorer because of it,” he railed.

The Minnesota congresswoman and her fellow accusers have contacted the inspectors general at several U.S. government agencies, including the Departments of State and Homeland Security – and asked for an investigation into possible ties between American officials and the Muslim Brotherhood.

In her letter, Bachmann noted that Abedin’s late father, mother and brother are “connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations” and that Abedin “by extension may be working on the organization’s behalf.”

The letter cites a 2002 article in the Law Review at Brigham Young University that explains Abedin’s late father, Professor Syed Abedin, founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs in Saudi Arabia, which was supported by another organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.


  1. I think its a valid point! She has access to our biggest secrets and has ties to the enemy.

    Bachman did not just dream about it, she must be on to something

  2. I am sure the Weiner family is really having nachas from their son marrying an Egypt shikse, showing his parts in public, having a littler mamzer brought up in the was of Muhammad.

    Anthony you great grand parents gave their lives in Auschwitz definitely not for what you are doing. Shame on you!

  3. I am not worried about Huma, i am more worried about Hillary, i don’t trust her or her shadow.

    It seems like she works for the Arabs and somehow she is the secretary of state. Unqualified just like when she was senator

  4. I have never trusted Weiner. More than ever since he married Huma. there is not a doubt in my mind that if she is not yet working for the Muslim cause,she would do so without a second thought.As far as Hilary is concerned i am very disenchanted with her performance as Secretary Of State.She has bent over backward to do harm and double cross the Jews.SHAME ON HER!!!

  5. Michelle Bachman is a whack job ! For the life of me,I could never understand,how her constituents,could ever vote & make her their own Congresswoman.Just goes to show,how wacky & stupid,even the people are,in her own district.Glad to see Sen.John McCain,stand up in front of the entire senate floor & expose,the stupidity & the slimy politics of Michelle Bachman.She was the laughing stock of the GOP Primary.That even Ronald Regan’s campaign Manager resigned, after being her campaign manager.As,even he knew she was a wacko ! She is now exposed !

  6. Whether she is involved or not,the previous comments clearly show how much hate you people have for muslims.
    Muslims are not terrorists, you cannot accuse more than 1 billion people for the deeds of only a few thousand.What CIA is doing in my Pakistan,is truely and honestly a more brutal act than 9/11. And if you think that 6 year old boy, whose father,mother and younger sister were killed by american drone attack, will not have a Anti America thinking, you are wrong. . .
