"To say that the accusations made in both documents are not substantiated by the evidence they offer is to be overly polite and diplomatic about it. It is far better, and more accurate, to talk straight: These allegations about Huma Abedin, and the report from which they are drawn, are nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable citizen, a dedicated American, and a loyal public servant."

-- Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) defends Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, from accusations made by Rep. Michelle Bachmann and four others in a letter to the State Department's Inspector General demanding an investigation into a possible Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into the US government.
