Video: Rep. Michele Bachmann Dodges Questions About her Anti-Muslim Accusations

Publish date:

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), on Wednesday, walked away from CNN reporter Dana Bash, who asked Bachmann about her accusations that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, was infiltrating the U.S. government on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood (video below).

Rep. Bachmann told Bash to call her later to set up an interview, which Bachmann's office refused to do.

Bash told CNN host Anderson Cooper. “If a lawmaker tells me they’re going to get back to me and they just don’t have time but they will do an interview later, I try to take them at their word. She didn’t do that. Her office said, after several emails, that she didn’t have time in her schedule.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) ripped Rep. Bachmann and four other Republican lawmakers for their “attacks" on Abedin.
