Michele Bachmann has gone from outrageous to dangerous.


Dear The McGlynn,

Michele Bachmann has gone from outrageous to dangerous.

Recently, she falsely accused Huma Abedin–a dedicated public servant and top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton–of plotting against the U.S. government with the Muslim Brotherhood.

I’m proud to say Think Progress was there from the start, shedding light on these bizarre and unfounded attacks and leading the coverage of this outrage. And I’m not alone in condemning Rep. Bachmann’s Islamophobic witch-hunt: Even Speaker Boehner called Rep. Bachmann’s accusations “dangerous.”

That’s true. But what’s more dangerous is Rep. Bachmann keeping her seat on the House Intelligence Committee, where she has access to classified national security information. Rep. Bachmann’s antics have proven that she can’t be trusted to act in our best interests.

Paranoid bigotry has no place in driving our national security policy. Please join me in denouncing Rep. Bachmann’s attacks and demanding that Speaker Boehner remove her from the House Intelligence Committee before her reckless politics hurt our national security.

Thanks,

Neera Tanden
Counselor for the Center for American Progress Action Fund

In a June 13 letter to multiple security agencies Rep. Michele Bachmann falsely accused Huma Abedin, longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a dedicated public servant, of plotting against the U.S. Government with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Many Republicans have condemned these ugly and unfounded claims—Even Speaker Boehner called them “dangerous.” But what’s more dangerous is Rep. Bachmann keeping her seat on the House Intelligence Committee, where she has access to classified national security information.

We can all agree this paranoid bigotry has no place in driving our national security policy. Join us in denouncing Rep. Bachmann’s attacks and demanding that Speaker Boehner remove her from the House Intelligence Committee before her reckless politics hurt our national security.
