Scott Brown Condemns Bachmann Accusations Against Huma Abedin

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) joined the small but growing ranks of Republicans who are condemning the accusations being made by some GOP members of Congress against Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And in Brown’s case, he is calling out Rep. Michele Bachmann by name.

Brown tweeted Wednesday evening:

Earlier in the day, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) delivered a floor speech condemning the accusations that Abedin was a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator into the government, though McCain did not specifically mention the names of Abedin’s accusers.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
