Mitt Romney was asked about the calls for an investigation into the background of Hillary Clinton’s closest advisor, Huma Abedin. His response was quite different from that of some other establishment Republicans.
Via Huffington Post:
Mitt Romney declined to speak out against Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and four other House Republicans on Friday for seeking to investigate whether Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Following a campaign event in Reno, Nev., a reporter asked the presumptive Republican presidential nominee for his reaction to both Bachmann’s allegations against Abedin and a controversy surrounding Chick-Fil-A and gay marriage.
“I’m not going to tell other people what things to talk about,” Romney responded. “Those are not things that are part of my campaign.”
It’s becoming increasingly obvious that the positions of John McCain, Marco Rubio, Scott Brown, John Boehner, and Jim Sensenbrenner when it comes to their attacks on Bachmann / defense of Huma Abedin, are becoming increasingly untenable.
