Rubio doesn’t ‘share the feelings’ in Bachmann letter on Clinton aide

On Wednesday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) delivered a strongly worded speech criticizing the claim in the letter. Since then a number of other Republicans have expressed disagreement with the charge. On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called the claim “pretty dangerous.”

{mosads}Bachmann, later on in the day on Wednesday, issued a statement saying the letter was being “distorted” by critics and the media.

“The letters my colleagues and I sent on June 13 to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State … are unfortunately being distorted,” Bachmann said in the statement responding to McCain’s comments.
