According to the Addicting Info website, Conservative American congressman Jim Sensenbrenner has weighed into the debate surrounding US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's aide Huma Abedin, dismissing suggestions that she is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The statement by Representative Sensenbrenner came during a town hall meeting in Wisconsin, Illinois, when he responded to calls from one member of the audience that the Republican party back claims by former Presidential aspirant Michelle Bachmann that Abedin is part of an "Islamic conspiracy" and ought to be investigated.

According to the website, Sensenbrenner said: "Let me say that I do know Huma Abedin and I think that the comments that were made about her in that letter, whether or not they were taken out of context, were the wrong thing to do,” Sensenbrenner stated. “I think the Constitution in saying that there shall never be a religious test for any office of trust and profit under the United States meant that people should not be judged on the basis of their religious beliefs or lack of religious beliefs."

His statement followsearlier denunciations of Bachmann's claims by noted conservatives Senator John McCain and Congressman Mike Rogers.
