Rep. Eric Cantor Defends Rep. Michele Bachmann’s Anti-Muslim Witch Hunt
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), on Friday, refused to condemn Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) suggestion that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, had infiltrated the U.S. government on behalf of radical Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood.
Although Cantor had recently said his party needed to be more tolerant of LGBT people and Muslims, he seemed on Friday to legitimize Bachmann’s call for an investigation.
“If you read some of the reports that have covered this story, I think that her concern was about the security of the country,” the Virginia Republican insisted to CBS host Charlie Rose. “So, that’s about all I know.”
