NEW YORK CITY — Conservative Michele Bachmann is questioning why tighter National Security guidelines were overlooked in the appointment of disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner’s wife, (Huma Abedin), to the post of deputy chief of staff to the United States.

In a letter sent to the Department of State, Bachman said Huma
Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff and
wife of Anthony Weiner, “has three family members — her late father, her
mother and her brother — connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives
and/or organizations.”

A copy of a June 13 letter was posted by Minnesota’s St. Cloud Times.

Bachmann, expanded on the charges in a separate letter last week to
fellow Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of
Congress, questioning why Abedin was able to get security clearance and
not rejected under “foreign influence grounds.” The letter was posted by

Michaele Bachmann

The alleged link, was revealed by the
right-wing website Center for Security Policy, is allegedly part of a
widespread conspiracy by the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate the U.S.
government and influence foreign policy that Bachmann and four other
Republican members of the House have been warning federal agencies

Abedin's “position affords her routine access to the Secretary and to policy-making,” wrote Bachmann, Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Thomas Rooney of Florida and Rep. Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia in their letter to the State Department calling for an investigation.

The group also claimed the Obama administration has taken several
actions recently that are “enormously favorable” to the Muslim
Brotherhood, raising “serious safety concerns” that warrant “urgent

The State Department did not respond to a request for comment.

Weiner, who is reportedly considering a mayoral run,
was one of the most pro-Israel members of Congress before he was forced
to resign after accidentally posting lewd images of himself on Twitter.

In an interview with radio host Sandy Rios last month, Bachmann
alleged the Muslim Brotherhood's influence in the U.S. runs deep.

“It appears that there has been deep penetration in the halls of our
United States government by the Muslim Brotherhood,”
she said, according
to the Times.

"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,”
she said.

The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammad Mursi last month won the presidency of Egypt.

    It's amazing... The democratic party is one of racism and forced dependence, ' abortion for all', and now the subtle insertion of Sharia and its adherents. What a joke. The Dems won't be happy until America as we know it is dead and gone

    We should determine what kind of interest her family has in these organizations to determine whether or not Ms. Abedin has any conflict of interest in performing her job duties. It would be no different than a member of the House Appropriations Committee having a family member that works for a Defense Contractor.

    She worked for Hilliary when she was a State Senator, and Hillary brought her along when she was appointed Sec of State...But makes No Diff, with ther Muslim Brotherhood Connections...Remember when there was a summit at Camp David under Clinton's watch that involved Palistine, Arafat, and Isreal's Prime Minister...Hilliary sided up with Arafta's Wife and snubbed the Isreali PM's Wife....Her praise for Muslims goes back that Far....

    There is no doubt then, that these people have had ties to Islamist for a very long time. I thought people in government were not supposed to have those kind of ties. We lost our guard and now we are in too deep. How sad that we've been lying with the devil. These muslim people are in perfect positions to be spies, how pathetic and dumb!
  • ReconMa... dominic... 2012/07/20 15:42:01
    That is How it is Supposed to work..But this PC Attitude of the LEFT, has given an open door Policy to anyone and everyone..All about Appeasement and getting that Voter Block and the Hell with Safety and Security..
    Just like the DHS recent statements about not doinganything to secure Our Borders, especially In AZ after they brought the SCOTUS into their State, trying to Get the DHS to DO THEIR JOB...

    They are really messed up. I have family members and friends working protecting the borders and I don't believe they have a positive attitude towards our government right now. The illegals have more support and rights than our own officials. That is so crazy, you are right the word is out that we have to be sweet to criminals.
  • ReconMa... dominic... 2012/07/20 22:21:45
    I hear ya...The BP has their hands tied behind their Backs, Thanks to DHS....
    That region along the Border in AZ and across the Rio Grande in El Paso, have been fired on all to many times from across the border in Mexico..and yet Napolitano has Not Been to the Border to see with her Own Eyes...Just sits in her Office and states The Borders Have Never been More Secure,,,where...Pakistan.????
