Michelle Bachmann Doubles Down on Muslim Brotherhood Infesting US Government Charge

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is making fresh allegations of ties between an Islamist movement and vast parts of the U.S. government—this time Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Min), the first Muslim-American elected to Congress—even as Bachmann’s fellow Republicans increasingly condemn her calls to investigate the Brotherhood’s influence, the Minnesota St. Cloud Times reported Thursday.

Among the suspected agents named in the letter was Huma Abedin, a deputy chief of staff for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and wife of Anthony Weiner, the disgraced former House member from New York. The letter asserted that three of Abedin’s family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood and that Clinton’s office has “taken actions recently that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests.”

Earlier, Rep. Bachmann also accused Huma Abedin, seen here behind her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, of ties to the Muslim Brothers.

The Muslim Brotherhood is an international Islamist movement that recently came to power in Egypt, which some say maintains ties to terror groups such as Hamas.

Earlier this week, Sen. John McCain took to the Senate floor to condemn a letter sent to inspectors general of several federal agencies by Bachmann and four other Republicans in the House of Representatives, in which the congresswoman suggested that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has made “deep penetration” into the federal government and that those agencies should launch an investigation to uncover the influence of the group’s agents.

In an interview with radio host Glenn Beck Thursday, Bachmann said Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, “has a long record of being associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Ellison refuted those allegations in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, saying he has no ties to the movement. He also released the following letter in response to Rep. Michele Bachmann’s 16-page letter, saying: “A careful review of your 16-page response reveals that you fail to provide any credible evidence for your claims, engage in guilt by association, and continue to rely on discredited sources.”

Ellison added: “If Bachmann has sources for this type of information, she owes it to the country to reveal them to the proper authorities, but definitely not this way. If she doesn’t have this type of information, she should not be whipping up fear and hysteria about a very important matter.”

“It appears that there has been deep penetration in the halls of our United States government by the Muslim Brotherhood,” Bachmann told the St. Cloud Times, a Minnesota newspaper. “It appears that there are individuals who are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood who have positions, very sensitive positions, in our Department of Justice, our Department of Homeland Security, potentially even in the National Intelligence Agency.”

Cosigning the letters were Reps. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert, (R-Texas), Thomas Rooney (R-Fla.) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.).

At the Senate on Wednesday, McCain (R-Ariz.) called Bachmann’s claims “specious and degrading,” according to reports.

House Speaker John Boehner joined the ranks of congressional Republicans denouncing Bachmann and the four other lawmakers about Huma Abedin. Boehner said that while he doesn’t know Abedin personally, “from everything I do know of her, she has a sterling character, and I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.”

    Would we allow the kids of Osama bin-Laden hold sensitive positions within the government? Huma’s mother, father, brother, and who knows how many cousins, are all deeply involved with the Muslim Brotherhood. This is not speculation, it is easily provable fact (see Shoebat.com). A woman like this should not be allowed within 1000 feet of the Secretary of State of the United States.

  2. Jed Dunkin says:

    Keith Ellison is a democrat from Minneapolis- St Paul Minnesota.

  3. What Jed said. It's hard to take this article seriously with such glaring mistakes.

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    Joe McCarthy has been reincarnated.

  5. Steven Stueber says:

    Michelle Bachmann is a radical FOR TRUTH. She's RIGHT. JESUS CHRIST stands with her. Hey, if GOD can't find a man to stand FOR TRUTH, then HE will find a woman. " Republicans " in U. S Gov. Where?

  6. Perry Levin says:

    With that error aside, Michele Bachmann has become known over many years as someone who hears a rumor and quotes it as fact. She is easily led by the right-wing and tea baggers. This article fairly accurately describes the controversy she has started and the blow-back from other republicans.

  7. Charlie Hall says:

    Steven, do you realize that this is a Jewish site? What Jesus thinks is irrelevant to us.

    Since you think Bachmann is right, would you care to post evidence? She has not produced any!

  8. Steve Rose says:

    Charlie: Do you realize that Jesus was a Jew? Is a Messianic Jew not a Jew?

    I think the judgements are a bit premature, as the charges have been neither proven nor refuted. Let's not mistake a denial for a refutation.

  9. Charlie Hall says:

    Even the Republicans are finally calling out Bachmann, even if the crazies who comment here still believe her:

  10. Charlie Hall says:

    Marx and Trotsky were Jews, too.

  11. Steve Rose says:

    They were Jews, but not Messianic Jews.

  12. A less sweeping statement by Bachmann, just confined to Huma Weiner, would be supportable. Her late father was a member of the MB. Her brother is a member of the MB. Her mother is a senior officer in the "sisterhood" auxiliary of the MB. So a statement that Huma Weiner has multiple links to the MB would be true.

  13. Charlie Hall says:

    That has nothing to do with her. We had a JCS chairman back in the 1990s whose father was in the SS — does that mean a "Nazi connection"?

  14. Charlie Hall says:

    That has nothing to do with her. We had a JCS chairman back in the 1990s whose father was in the SS — does that mean a "Nazi connection"?

  15. I wrote "links." I did not write that Huma Weiner shares MB ideology or that she was passing information to the MB.

  16. David Yee says:

    Ah….If so, then what's the point of dragging her name through all this?

  17. Yori Yanover says:

    You are correct. Our writer picked up a typo from an original source. Our apologies.

  18. Jed Dunkin says:

    No apology needed Yori we all make mistakes. As for Bachmann she borders on insane.

  19. John Hill says:

    What do you mean "doubles down"? She and 4 other Representatives made an office request to the State Department Inspector General to investigate any possible connections, and as per statute the I.G. must do so. given that Adebin's father was a principal member of the M.B., her mother IS a bigwig in the Muslim Sisterhood, which advocates for Sharia law and AGAINST laws banning female circumcision (does Rachel Maddow mention this?), and her brother is also an active M.B. member – is it really such a stretch to look into Huma, and any effect she may have had? She is the Chief Adviser to the Secretary of State, after all – in a Department which in 2010 reversed course and began supporting the Muslims Brotherhood – with potentially disastrous results. So speare us the "McCarthyism" nonsense, and let the DoS I.G. do their job.

  20. Nora Simon says:

    Is a Nazi connection relevant in 2012? It's all a matter of context; the Muslim Brotherhood is advancing very aggressively in all four corners of the world. Ellison's hajj back in '08 was paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood's American arm, the Muslim American Society. And the MAS is documented, by prosecuters in our own Federal gov't as operating as a front for the terror-affiliated Muslim Brotherhood. As late as 2004, even our mainstream media openly referred to the MAS as a front group for the MB.

  21. Mr. Yee, examination of family connections are standard procedure for high level government security clearances. Apparently, Ms. Weiner was never "vetted" by normal security procedures.

  22. Lastly, for reference, here are Rep. Bachmann's letters to the State Department Inspector General and to Rep. Ellison, who protested her letter to the IG: http://bachmann.house.gov/uploadedfiles/ig_letter_dhs.pdf http://bachmann.house.gov/uploadedfiles/letter_to_rep._ellison.pdf. Lastly, former prosecutor Andy McCarthy, who prosecuted Muslim terrorists and their funding conduits, weighs in: http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/310198/questions-about-huma-abedin-andrew-c-mccarthy?pg=1
