Full Headline: Napolitano Tells Congressional Committee DHS Found No Links Between Huma Abedin And The Muslim Brotherhood
(TRNS) During a hearing Wednesday with the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano if DHS had discovered any links between a high-ranking official in the State Department and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The question was a nod to a letter authored by Rep. Michele Bachmann and signed by five House Republicans that was sent to the State Department.
The Representatives questioned whether Secretary Clintons deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin or any other government officials have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Secretary Napolitano answered Jackson Lee with a resounding no. To further emphasize her point, Jackson Lee asked her question a second time.
We have looked into this, Napolitano said. The FBI has looked into this. We have found no credible evidence that such activity is going on.
Weasel Zippers: Huma Abedins family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are a fact (the closest being her mother, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood), the question raised in the letter was if they have any influence over her. So either Napolitano is lying to Congress or engaging in semantics.
Personally, I can think of another reason why Numbskull-o-tano might think Huma is no threat ...
Imagine the odds
Ratz covering for Ratz ,,,, whatz that smell ???
So parsing the Obamaspeak along the lines of the initial "Fast and Furious" testimony, was there any incredible evidence or was there evidence of activity in the past, but not while the cops were looking?
Secretary Napolitano, using both hands and a flash light, please find your a$$.
Ahh, I think we’ve located the problem!
and we all know that Napy would never tell a lie to Congress or the American people
The system “worked”.
If she asked one of us freepers we could have told her...
I heard that the code name for this was “Operation Ostrich”.
Wow. Color me shocked. /s
We are not “credible”.
She probably touched the side of her nose with her finger and winked while she was saying this.
No (1) credible (2) evidence that such (3) activty is (4) going on.
But the “link(s)” are definitely there. Enough to deny a security clearance,
Is there evidence but many not “credible”? (i.,e. hearsay? circumstantial? Rumor?
Was there “activity”? (Past tense - Was is “cured” when she married a Jew?)
Even though it is not on-going at this time, was it?
When my husband got his clearance, they interviewed his parents, my parents, our neighbors and old neighbors....I guess since they are pro radical islamist, they think she is an asset to the obama adminstration. God forgot they have a Christian who actually believes in God, a pro-lifer or God forbid a hunter. They would see them as dangerous.
credible evidence - subjective, yes - indicates there is such evidence just not credible in her view. Methinks this is evidence there is indeed smoke and where there is smoke there is something combustible.
“Lou Costello” in Drag could find links in a bicycle chain.

Hello Huma, this is Janet. Are you connected to the Muslim Brotherhood?
Thanks, I didn’t think so.
Well, she didn't say "ties", she said "links"...
They couldn't find any "links" at all.
Marking reference to the Clinton definition of “is”?
‘B.J.’ Clinton, when defending his testimony that “there is no sexual relationship” with Monica “Lips” Lewinsky, testified that it was not a lie because; basically he was not actually having sex with Monica DURING his questioning.
Napolitano: "No connection between Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood."
How could anyone doubt her word?
Seems the Regime has yet another knotty problem to deal with. I’ve gathered from JN’s demeanor during her dissembling testimony that there is much to conceal. Well, we’ll see if this rolls off their slimy back like everything else does..don’t make me recount it.
Napolitano reminds me of Baghdad Bob, for the blatant and thoroughly bland method of their lies.
Oh please. This woman knows only to lie. She should be charged with treason.
Is anosmia covered under Obamacare?
Well she can’t find illegal aliens comin across our borders either.
Huma Abedin & Hillary Clinton - Abedin Family Ties to Al-Qaeda
Research from 2007 - worth the read!
In the same week that the EU announces that Hizbullah is not a terrorist organization. Time to go buy lottery tickets.
Maybe the FBI contracted with Brian Ross to do a Google Search on Huma... That way she can say “The FBI Looked into it...”
But given her behavior, she has found endless bombs in the panties of Americans at the airports.
Number of times that Clinton figures who testified in court or before Congress said that they didn’t remember, didn’t know, or something similar.

If Napolitano is found to be lying later on, she should be investigated under suspicion of covering up for Al-Qaeda.
She was the ‘bag man’. You hire the wife of the governor NOT because of her legal acumen - but because you will be repaid for your ‘investment’.
Look how well the hospital that hired Michelle 0bama made out when they hired her for so essential a position that apparently ONLY SHE could fill it - it was worth $300,000 a year apparently - yet has gone unfilled from the time she left for Washington.
No wonder they think nobody ever accomplished anything without ‘Big Brother’ lending a helping hand!
Grew up in Saudi Arabia from age two, raided by moslem brotherhood parents, returned to the USA only to attend college. Within 2 years of returning for college, works in the Clinton White house for Hillery.
Now has unlimited access to influence the Secretary of State.
Yeah, that’s normal. Live entire life in an enemy country. Arrive in the USA at age 18, begin working at the white house. Most kids follow a career path similar to this.
When can we get this POS out?
Good read. Maybe janet should read that and get a clue.
Obama lied! Freedom Died!
Maybe this is where the WH leaks are coming from. Possibly the leaks have a more sinster purpose than just political gain for Obama.
No links - other than Huma’s own mother and father.
Shalom Aleichem, shalom aleichem. Very good observations. The bottom line is, since when is the absence of “credible evidence” the standard for safeguarding national security at the highest levels of government? Likewise, in a similar vein to your observations, the question was not whether there was “activity”. The question was about links. Do they exist? Links can exist without activity. Affinity for a particular cause can exist without activity. Quiet subversion in the form of influence exerted on the Secretary of State requires no apparent activity.
The answer is: Of course there are links!!!
Here’s an experiment. My name is Carlos Castro. I am the son of Fidel Castro, the nephew of Raul Castro. I grew up around these men and I’ve never been an outspoken communist, but neither have I broken with them ideologically. Now, I have applied to be the special assistant to the Secretary of State of the United States and Janet Napolitano is asked if I have links to the Communist Party. Oh, yeah, I forgot. Napolitano is a DemoCrat. She would praise my connection to the Communist Party and throw in a good word for Fidel also.
The Muslim Brotherhood has flatly stated that their goal, their intention is to destroy this nation. This in my mind makes them an organization and all their members and those associated with them, subject to being closely watched. Personally, I would simply remove them from our shores.
Napolitano and many others denigrated and smeared Congresswoman Bachmann using that old leftist canard “McCarthyism”. If you are not aware please look it up, history proved McCarthy correct.
What amazed me the most was so many prominent individuals so eager to shout out their support of a subversive group bent on this nations destruction and thereby declaring themselves so clearly “domestic enemies”.
Right. Huma started out as a constant companion for Hillary (bed warmer?) then as Hill moved around, Huma got higher and higher paying spots. Now she is a senior State Department whatever, probably with access to all kinds of sensitive state secrets.
A counterpart to that was Reggie Love, O’s “body man”, inseparable. Probably in more ways than Sanduskying.
Sickening we have to pay for these “fringe” benefits.
