Even after being denounced by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) and her former presidential campaign manager Ed Rollins, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) remains unabated in her assertion that Islamists have infiltrated the U.S. government.
A letter signed by Bachmann and four other congressional Republicans last week suggested that members of the Muslim Brotherhood had secured access to senior officials within the Obama administration. The letter singled out Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. On Wednesday, McCain, Brown and Rollins sharply rebuked Bachmann.
But the tea party champion won't back down. In a statement released Wednesday, Bachmann claimed that she had been distorted and said that she will not be "silent as this administration appeases our enemies instead of telling the truth about the threats our country faces.”
