Update July 26th: See Blue Ridge Forum, here, and see how you can contact Bachmann’s office after contacting YOUR Republican members of Congress to support Bachmann et al.
Here is the latest I have on the rapidly expanding story about Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (and four fellow Republicans) efforts to get an investigation of how deeply the Muslim Brotherhood has penetrated the US government. I told you about the controversy, here and here in recent days.
Now, according to Glenn Beck and Andrew McCarthy, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner is attempting to wring an apology from Bachmann by allegedly threatening to remove her from the House Intelligence Committee.
Despite mounting evidence of close ties between the Muslim Brotherhood and Huma Abedin, Secretary of State Clinton’s close aide, Republican congressional leaders — particularly Senator John McCain and House Speaker John Boehner — continue to target their ire not at the State Department but at Representative Michele Bachmann.
Representative Bachmann is one of five House conservatives who have raised concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of our government. Glenn Beck reported Tuesday that GOP leadership is trying to extort an apology out of Bachmann by threatening to boot her from the House Intelligence Committee if she fails to submit.
That got me to wondering: Any chance Speaker Boehner might take just a couple of minutes out of his busy jihad against Bachmann to focus on how the State Department — during Ms. Abedin’s tenure — has cozied up to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief sharia jurist?
