"Mr. Khan more than an aggrieved father of a Muslim son- he's Muslim Brotherhood agent helping Hillary," Stone tweeted, linking to an article about what the media is not telling people about Khizr Khan, the father of Capt. Humayun Khan.

The article says Khizr Khan, who spoke critically of the GOP nominee during a speech last week at the Democratic National Convention, is a Muslim brotherhood agent "who wants to advance Sharia law and bring Muslims into the United States."

"The Muslim who attacked Donald Trump, Khizr Muazzam Khan, is a Muslim Brotherhood agent, working to bring Muslims into the United States," the article says.

"After reading what we discovered so far, it becomes obvious that Khan wanted to ‘trump’ Trump’s Muslim immigration. But not so fast. Trump we have your back."

Stone tweeted Khizr Khan is being "traced to the same radical Muslim group" as Huma Abedin, an adviser to Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBiden to debate for first time as front-runner Top Trump ally says potential Amash presidential bid could be problematic in Michigan Chaotic Trump transition leaks: Debates must tackle how Democrats will govern differently MORE.

Stone in the past accused Abedin of potentially being a "terrorist agent." In 2012, some House GOP lawmakers also accused Abedin of aiding the Muslim Brotherhood.

Khizr Khan, whose son died while serving in Iraq, made a speech last week at the Democratic National Convention that was critical of Trump. He challenged Trump to read the Constitution and said he has "sacrificed nothing" for the country.

In response, Trump criticized Khan and questioned why his wife, who was standing next to him, did not speak at the convention.

Trump in another interview noted sacrifices he'd made in his business career and said Khan had no right to question his views on the Constitution.

The comments from Trump have been met with widespread criticism, including from prominent Republicans.
