Does Huma Abedin have 'ties' to the Muslim Brotherhood?

•, By Glenn Kessler

Huma Abedin is a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, having worked for her when Clinton was first lady, a senator and secretary of state. Abedin is now vice chair of the Clinton campaign. She is married to former representative Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), who resigned in disgrace over sex-tinged social media posts.

But Abedin has also been the subject of suspicion on the right, given that she grew up in Saudi Arabia (after being born in Kalamazoo, Mich.) before attending George Washington University.

Roger Stone, a top adviser to GOP nominee Donald Trump, described Abedin on Aug. 23 as a "Saudi asset." Her name popped in the news again after the New York Post published an article  Aug. 21 titled, "Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim journal for a dozen years" what Duffy was referring to when he said she was "an editor for a Sharia newspaper."
