Bachmann-Ellison Wars over the Muslim Brotherhood

Keith Ellison is the first Muslim elected to Congress. Rep. Ellison represents Minnesota’s 5th District as part of the Left Wing Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Typically Left Wing politics is anti-religion and anti-Christian in particular; however the Minnesota Leftists must look the other way relating Islam. Ellison’s devotion seems to be affiliated to what has become known in the USA as Radical Islam due to the Radical Muslim organizations he seems to associate with.
 Huma Abedin & Hillary Clinton
With that short introduction of Keith Ellison I discovered that Ellison fired off an accusatory letter to Rep. Michele Bachmann that is running in a redistricting situation in Minnesota’s 6th District. Ellison’s letter is related to another letter sent and signed by Bachmann and Reps. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, Thomas Rooney, R-Fla., and Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga. concerning Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Obama Administration with the mention of an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - Huma Abedin. Left Wing media has been defending Abedin as a U.S. born citizen and a University graduate of George Washington University. The Leftist goal of course is to make Bachmann and her fellow Republicans look like bigots. The Leftist fails to mention Abedin’s parents moved to Saudi Arabia when Abedin was two years old. So between two and attending GWU Huma Abedin was under the influence of the Radical Islam of Wahhabism not to mention she has family in Egypt all connected to the Radical Islamic Muslim Brotherhood.

Keith Ellison was under the impression Bachmann only had one source who of course Islamic apologists believe is a Muslim hater just because he writes about the truth about the dark side of Islam. Ellison’s misguided belief gave him the bright idea to send his letter to Bachmann demanding apologies for what he believed to be a lack of evidence for Bachmann’s call for an investigation.

Bachmann Responded to Ellison with sixteen pages of source citations. Below is the account I found at

Michele Bachmann fires off a 16-Page Bombshell to Muslim Congressman, Keith Ellison

Yes, there is a Huma Abedin angle to this story but a certain Muslim Congressman seems to be in the middle of digging himself a bit of a hole.

On July 12th, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Muslim-MN) sent a two-page letter to the five congressmen who sent five separate letters to five separate Inspectors General on June 13th. The June 13th letters raised serious concerns about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration inside the U.S. Government. Among the concerns raised with the OIG at the State Department are the familial connections of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide – Huma Abedin – to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ellison attempted to pit Bachmann against Republicans like Herman Cain and Chris Christie by pointing out that her source in the June 13th letters seemed to be one person – Frank Gaffney. Gaffney has rightfully been very critical of said Republicans in the past for their comments and actions relative to Muslim Brotherhood front groups.

Moreover, Ellison seemed to allege in his July 12th letter that Gaffney was Bachmann’s only source.

Here is how Ellison ended that letter:

Despite Mr. Gaffney’s record of unsubstantiated allegations, you appear to have based your letters to the Inspectors General on his views.

I request that you provide my office a full accounting of the sources you used to make the serious allegations against the individuals and organizations in your letters. If there is not credible, substantial evidence for your allegations, I sincerely hope that you will publically (sic) clear their names.

Ask and ye shall receive, Congressman…

Bachmann responded to Ellison by sending him a 16-page bombshell (via SC Times) that is strewn with 59 separate footnotes, proving unequivocally that Gaffney is hardly her only source. Says Bachmann:

I do note that the facts we presented in the Inspector General request letters are based on information presented by U.S. Government officials in court documents, court evidence, correspondence and briefings with Congress and public statements, in addition to known media reporting. These letters were far from sole-sourced as you maintain in your letter.

While I can’t speak on behalf of the other signatories of these letters, nor am I able to get into the private discussions and documentation received by the various House committees represented by the signatories on these matters that motivated these letters to the various Inspectors General, out of respect to you I am happy to respond to some of your concerns, provide the sources you ask for, as well as clarify a few points that may have been misunderstood or misrepresented.

Furthermore, Ellison’s defense of groups that should be identified as enemies of the United States puts him in dangerous territory and Bachmann exploited it. In citing the Holy Land Foundation Trial – along with attempts by CAIR and ISNA to be removed from unindicted co-conspirator list – Bachmann quotes from the Judge’s declination of that request:

Finally, CAIR, NAIT, and ISNA ask the Court to strike their names from any public document filed or issued by the government (Mot. at 6.) While it is clear from the Briggs line of cases that the Government should have originally filed the unindicted co-conspirators’ names under seal, the Court declines to strike CAIR, ISNA and NAIT’s names from those documents. The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas. (Bachmann’s letter cites the Judge’s Memorandum Opinion Order)

Ellison is dangerously close to outwardly defending groups tied to Hamas – a designated terrorist organization – and he’s doing so on the Congressional record. Bachmann basically check-mates Ellison in the very next sentence:

It should be noted that Article 2 of the Hamas Covenant identifies Hamas as a Muslim Brotherhood entity while Article 7 calls for the global killing of all Jews (Bachmann cites – of all things – Yale Law School).

Ellison is attempting to smear Bachmann while defending Huma Abedin from much needed scrutiny. Bachmann merely wants to investigate Abedin’s familial connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s already known that Huma’s mother – Saleha Abedin – is one of the Muslim Sisterhood’s 63 leaders. Is Ellison willing to overlook or deny this? That also puts him on very dangerous ground.

Ellison might want to re-think his position or he will be openly choosing the wrong side as more evidence is produced.

On second thought, Congressman, just keep telling us how you really feel. In a bizarre way, it’s kind of refreshing.
