Abedin in 2016.

Huma Mahmood Abedin (1975–) is a longtime close adviser to former First Lady, Secretary of State, and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the most distinguished American with both the FBI and the Islamic State on her ass.[1][2] She was married to former US Representative Anthony "The Mongoose" Weiner.[3]

Michelle Bachmann controversy[edit]

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann during the 2012 Republican Presidential primaries accused Abedin of being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Her campaign manager, Ed Rollins, who engineered Ronald Reagan's 1984 landslide 49 state win, resigned shortly afterward. Rollins, who later signed onto a pro-Trump SuperPAC, called Bachmann's Islamophobic comments "extreme and dishonest" and publicly advised her to apologize.[4]
