Ex-FBI Director Webster Lashes out at Bachmann’s Muslim Comment

Former FBI Director William Webster criticized Rep. Michele Bachmann’s claim that an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may be tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, saying it distracts from the war on terror, Newsmax reports.

The claim, which Webster called “morally wrong,” came from Bachmann and four other Republican House members who openly questioned whether Huma Abedin, Clinton’s chief of staff, was tied to terrorists.

“This is unfair, counterproductive, and it’s probably, in some respects, illegal or tortuous to be saying those things,” Webster told Newsmax. “But more importantly, it gets in the way of our being able to prevent terrorist acts from happening.”

Republicans made the claim because several living or deceased family members of Abedin have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, according to Newsmax.
