The controversy has become a widely discussed issue in the closing days before the 2016 Presidential election.On June 13, 2012, five members of Congress (Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Tom Rooney, Lynn Westmoreland) sent letters to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State seeking investigations into the Obama administration's involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group with a long history of jihadist violence.Representative Louie Gohmert of Texas, one of four co-signers to Bachmann's letter, grilled Janet Napolitano for answers on the Muslim Brotherhood infiltration and Huma Abedin's clearance.
He originally said his account had been "hacked," but he later admitted sending it and said it was a "joke" he intended to send as a direct message. "And it's the best part of my day." "It was astonishing for Abedin to have allowed such a film as 'Weiner' to be made at all," wrote Karen Tumulty, The Washington Post's national political correspondent, "much less to put a high-definition, close-up lens to the most humiliating chapter of her life." Here's how Tumulty described one scene in which Abedin gets advice from her husband's mayoral campaign on how to handle the latest drama: “I’ll give you some prep in the car,” Weiner says. “I would say you act like a normal campaign candidate’s wife: ‘I think Anthony is doing an amazing job. Abedin slumps in her chair and buries her chin in one hand, fidgeting with the other. 28, 2016: The New York Post reports that Weiner had been sexting with another woman, and this time the couple's toddler son, Jordan, is in the photo.
Abedin also worked for Clinton's campaign for president in 2008.
She is married to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.
After more than a decade of knowing each other and six years of marriage, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner are separating.
Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, released a statement Monday afternoon announcing their separation.
