>> Clinton. Her elevation to the No. 3 position in the campaign was a
>> "transformative shift... to campaign power center of her own," according to

>>
>> The five members of Congress alleged that Abedin had "immediate family
>> connections to foreign extremist organizations" which they said were
>> "potentially disqualifying conditions for obtaining a security clearance"

>>
>> The claims in the letter were generally rejected, and were labeled by

>>
>> The letter was also criticized by, among others, House Minority Leader
>> Nancy Pelosi and Representative Keith Ellison, Democrat of Minnesota, the
>> first Muslim member of Congress, who called the allegation "reprehensible."
>> Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, also rejected the allegations,
>> saying "The letter and the report offer not one instance of an action, a
>> decision or a public position that Huma has taken while at the State
>> Department that would lend credence to the charge that she is promoting
>> anti-American activities within our government....These attacks on Huma
>> have no logic, no basis and no merit."
>>
>> Bachmann's former campaign manager Ed Rollins said the allegations were
>> "extreme and dishonest" and called for Bachmann to apologize to Abedin.
>>
>> The Anti-Defamation League condemned the letter, calling upon the
>> Representatives involved to "stop trafficking in anti-Muslim conspiracy
