Is Bachmann being told to apologize or lose her position on House Intelligence Committee?
glennbeck.com ^ | 24JUL12 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 07/24/2012 3:54:42 PM PDT by bayouranger

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is getting heat from establishment colleagues over her calls to look more closely into the Muslim Brotherhood and their disturbing influence and infiltration in Congress. Glenn urged people to stand with Bachmann because she is exposing a serious threat to America – it makes one wonder, why would anyone push back?

“I want to talk to you about something of the most serious nature I think I have addressed on the air in maybe a year,” Glenn said as he started the show this morning.

“Do you remember when I said social justice, and get out of churches if you’re involved with social justice?” he asked. “The attacks came from all quarters.”

“Today the political world is in the same kind of attack mode not against me but somebody else. Michelle Bachmann. For a letter she released last week, and within minutes the attacks started coming from both sides of the aisle.”

Bachmann has come under fire for comments directed at Clinton aide Huma Abedin. In a letter she co-signed, she said, “ ”Huma Abedin has three family members — her late father, her mother and her brother — connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations.”

Glenn said, “No one including Michelle Bachmann is saying she has been compromised. What Michelle Bachmann is asking for – as is her duty to stand and protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic – all she’s asking is was there a proper check.”

Glenn has learned that she is now facing pressure to apologize for her comments for be removed from her position on the U.S. House intelligence committee.

When the controversy first started over Bachmann’s comments, she quickly explained: “Not once in the letter to the Inspector General of the Department of State, as you summarize, was it stated that “by extension, (Ms. Abedin), may be working on the organization’s behalf.”

She added, “That her family members are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood has been reported and referenced widely in the Arab-language media, including Al-Hayat, The Arab Times and Al-Jazeera.”

“That does not mean that Huma has done anything wrong,” Glenn explained.

Nevertheless, Glenn asked why it was so ridiculous to think that the same administration that allowed 9/11 Truther and former STORM member Van Jones to be the “green jobs czar” would fail at a background.

In the letter that Bachmann sent out, she had sixteen pages of footnoted information detailing evidence of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the United States government. You can read the full letter at the bottom of this article. On radio, Glenn went through some of the key arguments that Bachmann brought forth, and wondered why the media and other politicians were so quick to dismiss the entire document solely because of the Huma Abedin allegation.

“They’re focusing on a process question – whether one woman went through the proper background check. It is what the left always does when they set out to destroy someone. The other claims in this letter, like for example The Muslim Brotherhood is attempting to infiltrate our US government, are supported by quotes from the Muslim Brotherhood itself,” Glenn said.

“Michelle Bachmann is absolutely fearless and if they take Michele Bachmann out, they will take anyone out,” Glenn said. “This is both in the Republican and Democratic parties. She is saying what she believes. She is saying at great peril to her life and her job in Washington.”

“She is saying what she believes because she believes it’s what is right for the country. And so do I. Without any hesitation, without any reservation. I warn you if you do not take the Muslim Brotherhood seriously and help people like Michele Bachmann stand in this battle, they will pick them off one at a time,” Glenn said.

“There are very few people in Washington – more than you know, more than you would expect, less than you would hope – but there are those standing in Washington that are true to the constitution, true to the founding principles. True to themselves. Michelle Bachmann is one of them. She deserves and needs your support today. They are threatening – from the Republicans, Boehner and McCain – threatening Michele Bachmann that if she does not apologize for this letter today, she will lose her position on the intelligence committee. She is perfectly willing to have that happen. I am telling you that is a huge, huge mistake. And it is being orchestrated by those who either have their heads up someplace where their heads don’t belong or they’re getting marching orders from the very peaceful, very secular, nonpolitical, just sweet as pumpkin pie Muslim Brotherhood.”

I recall that the Clintons couldn't get their people a clearance for a very long time after they came into the White House.

Some staffers NEVER got a clearance...refused to submit to the process. I think Didi Myers was one.

This is why I’m no longer a Republican. It’s time to send Michelle another check. I send nothing to the RNC.

Boner doesn’t have the stones to tell Harriet Reid to shut her pie hole. A Shamnesty deal in the Sin-ate is what the GOPe pleasures themselves to. Both parties are out to screw the taxpayers.

If the House Repubs had an ounce of common sense, Michelle would be Speaker instead of the useless weeper.

Michelle wasn’t alone in asking for an investigation. So why is she being singled out?

If they let her hang alone, it will end the same for the rest of them.

They better stand together on this.

Seems we have a Alger Hissbolah in the State Department and the Left and RINOs are circling the wagons around the traitors again.

Boehner must go!

Didn’t Congressman Gomert sign this letter as well? Why take Michelle out alone? I say they are trying to show their power and get rid of the “very” squeaky wheel.
These congressweasels are all alike. If she goes down, anyone is fair game and that includes Boner. Idiots all!

It would destroy them & everyone would see it worldwide.

Where’s Peter King (R-NY) on this? It seems he knows Islam is the enemy.

And from a report about John McShame and that worthless excuse for a House Speaker, John Bonehead, a couple of days ago:

“House Speaker John Boehner has joined fellow Republicans in criticizing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s criticism of a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was among the first to condemn Bachmann’s effort. One day after McCain spoke on the Senate floor to criticize the effort, Boehner, R-West Chester Twp., weighted in. Boehner said he did not know Abedin well, but that “from everything that I know of her she has a sterling character.” “I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous,” he said.”

With jerks like this in the party, it’s embarassing to identify publicly as a Republican.

I’d like to see Bachmann knock both of their heads together.

“Alger Hissbolah in the State Department “

LOLOL that’s funny.

Just a reminder that Obama’s supposed girlfriend’s family is of the Jessup/ Alger Hiss/ Dean Acheson group.

The one shown in the obviously doctored photo with big head Obama.

My understanding is that the letter was not intended for
public consumption by Michelle. If true then why all the
butt-hurt reaction? She is just doing her job.

While spray-tan crybaby Boehner and Eric the rudderless Cantor drop to their knees for the Muslim Brotherhood and the cultural marxist establishment, Newt has stated that our political class cowers in fear of the brotherhood.

Hurrah Bachmann, you are one of our mighty ones.

Paraphrased:
In your lifetime you will have troubles, but fear not for I have over come the world.
