There are now five members of Congress who have stepped forward to sign letters addressed to the Inspectors General for the Departments of State, Justice, Defense, Homeland Security, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence requesting investigations into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood inside the United States Goverment.
Via Right Side News, here are the names of those Congressmen:
Rep. Michele Bachman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and Chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus
Rep. Trent Franks, Chairman of the House Judiciary’s Subcommittee on the Constitution a member of the House Armed Services Committee
Rep. Louie Gohmert, Vice Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security
Rep. Tom Rooney, Deputy Majority Whip and member of the House Armed Services Committee
Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee’s Oversight Subcommittee
Though this is welcome news and a step in the right direction, too much shouldn’t be made of it yet. The IG for the Justice Department, for example, has seemingly demonstrated more loyalty to the Attorney General than to the investigation, when it comes to say, Operation Fast and Furious. That said, the spotlight of five influential Congressman simply identifying Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. Government is significant.
Of particular interest to us here is the letter sent to the IG for the State Department because as we uncovered last year, the closest aid to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is none other than Huma Abedin (Anthony Weiner’s wife), who has extensive familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood; her mother – Saleha Abedin – is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an affiliate group.
Additionally, Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mohamed Morsi (Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate in Egypt) is also a member of the Sisterhood and is a colleague of Saleha Abedin.
In short, these five congressman should be strongly applauded for taking such a public stance on this issue but there is a long way to go.
