Cantor defends Bachmann's comments
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor breaks with some of his GOP colleagues and defends Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s highly criticized remarks about an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Bachmann has questioned whether Huma Abedin, who is a Muslim, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin is married to former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish.
When questioned on the CBS Morning News, Cantor suggested that Bachmann’s remarks, who others have labeled as intolerant, were reflective of her “concern about the security of the country.”
