McCain Stands up for Huma

July 18, 2012

Sen. John McCain took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to defend a top Hillary Clinton aide from unfounded charges of aiding radical Islamicists.

McCain took on unfounded allegations leveled in the right-wing blogosphere and echoed by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota who suggested that Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Clinton and the wife for former Rep. Anthony Weiner, has family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Noting that he'd spent a lot of time with Abedin when he'd travel abroad with then-Senator Clinton, McCain called Abedin, a person of "great patriotism" and someone who "all Americans owe a debt of gratitude" for her public service.

No response yet from Bachmann or Clinton.

An earlier version of this post gave the wrong day for McCain's remarks. He spoke on Wednesday.
