Minnesota congressman under fire for comments on the Muslim Brotherhood

NATIONAL -- A Minnesota congresswoman is under fire for comments she made regarding the Muslim Brotherhood.

Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann and four fellow Republicans charged Oomah Abedin with using her position near Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to promote the cause of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But even some colleagues in Congress, including fellow Republicans, aren't backing Bachmann.

"I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous," Rep. John Boehner said.

"These sinister accusations rest soley on a few unspecified and unbstantiated associations of members of Huma's family," Sen. John McCain.

Bachmann hasn't down from her charges.
