Napolitano Tells Committee DHS Found No Links Between Huma Abedin And The Muslim Brotherhood…

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 Clinton’s 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 Abedin’s 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.

"“The FBI has looked into this. We have found … no credible evidence that such activity is going on.”"

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?

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,

Raises questions:
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.

“...no credible evidence that such activity is going on..”

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.

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.

No links only weiners today. If you think the socialist democrats who DESPISE this country and have sympathy for the terrorists are going to defend infiltration by radical muslims
into our government it ain't gonna happen. First off they are programmed to be so politically correct they begin to studder badly when speaking out the word RADICAL MUSLIMS. Second, look at how they defend our borders. After the Radical in Chief is defeated in November we must clean house of all his commie anti american appointees.

If Napolitano is found to be lying later on, she should be investigated under suspicion of covering up for Al-Qaeda.

Yes, when the “smartest woman in the world” suddenly couldn't remember where she was or what she was doing or why she was hired by the Rose law firm!

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.

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”.

Shalon Aleichem and JewishRighter,
latter is correct; nobody with the kinds of associations she has can be admitted to top secrets or any kind of high security. It's not necessary to prove she herself is doing anything, although if they wanted to know, there is ample circumstantial evidence of that, too, according to recent commentaries. Napolitano and Clinton are in deep doo-doo if anybody would bother to apply the accepted standards of national security. I think a case can be made for treason charges against both of them.

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.
