Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said Thursday he was mystified at those who have criticized Rep. Michele Bachmanns (R-Minn.) claim that some State Department officials might be using their positions to aid the Muslim Brotherhood.
What is wrong with raising the question? Why isnt even asking whether were living up to our standards a legitimate level of congressional oversight? Bolton asked on the Frank Gaffney radio show. Why has that generated so much criticism? Im just mystified by it.
Bachmann (R-Minn.) and four other Republican lawmakers sent a letter earlier this month to the inspectors general at several government agencies raising questions about how department officials obtained security clearances.
The letter singled out Huma Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), saying she might be using her position to aid the Islamist group, which has been linked to violence in the past.
Her letter brought quick condemnation from colleagues on both sides of the aisle, most notably Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who blasted the assertions.

Thank you, Ambassador Bolton. I, for one, am pleased to see support for Bachman on this. I’m completely fed up with the cowering behind the threat of political correctness. Bolton would be my dream candidate for Secretary of State.
Ladies and gentlemen: On one side we have the team of Newt Gingrich and John Bolton. On the other side we have the team of John McCrazy and John Boehner. Any questions?
Very few others could have given solid credibility to Bachmann. Congrats to Bolton for speaking up.
