Gingrich Defends Bachmann Over Huma Abedin Allegations

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has drawn plenty of criticism —even from some Republicans — for raising questions about longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s alleged associations with the Muslim Brotherhood, but Newt Gingrich is one prominent politician who is defending the tea party congresswoman.

During an appearance on POLITICO Live’s Driving the Day on Tuesday morning, the former House Speaker opted not to take a swipe at Bachmann, arguing that the question she raised “ought to be asked across the board.”  

“There weren’t allegations, there was a question,” Gingrich said.
