Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.) has provided more evidence that the Republican Party dodged a bullet when she dropped out of the picture as a leading contender to become the GOP presidential nominee.
Bachmann and four other Republican members of Congress have all but accused Huma Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's top aide, of being in league with the Muslim Brotherhood. They have asked the State Department's inspector general to investigate their suspicions.
On what grounds? The very flimsiest for such a charge: a 10-year-old Brigham Young University Law Review article, which claimed Abedin's late father founded an organization that received funding from a group with historical ties to the Brotherhood.
