Clinton Muslim Brotherhood Employee arrested in Egypt

Those who have scoffed at the notion that Hillary Clinton’s close adviser, Huma Abedin, is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood have a new problem on their hands. With the arrest of Gehad El-Haddad in Egypt this week comes the demonstrably provable reality that the Clintons had a Muslim Brotherhood employee; Haddad worked at the William J. Clinton Foundation while also a member of the Brotherhood.

Gehad El-Haddad: top Muslim Brotherhood advisor, former Clinton employee

Via Washington Free Beacon:

A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence.

Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials until Egyptian security forces seized him as part of a wider crackdown on officials loyal to ousted former President Mohamed Morsi.

Before emerging as a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Morsi, el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit group founded by former President Bill Clinton.

El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt. {emphasis ours}

So much for the notion that the Clintons wouldn’t hire Muslim Brotherhood employees, which should cause renewed interest in Huma Abedin’s connections to the Brotherhood / Sisterhood.

As for el-Haddad, perhaps John McCain could take another trip to Egypt and attempt to get him released.
