The leader of the US House of Representatives says it is dangerous for a fellow Republican to allege that an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has family ties to Egypts Muslim Brotherhood.
Republican Michele Bachmann wrote a letter to the State Department last month with other Republicans about Huma Abedin. The letter said Abedins late father,mother and brother were connected to Muslim Brotherhood operations. She asked in a separate letter how Abedin received security clearance.
Speaker John Boehner,from everything I do know of her,she (Abedin) has a sterling character,and I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous. Republican Sen. John McCain,also defended Abedin,who is Muslim.
