I don't recall praising Bachmann for hard work. Can you point out where? I said that investigating potential security risks, which Huma would seem to be on facts (Citizenship, money and the other facts I mentioned) is a legitimate function of a representative.
For all your moaning about McCarthy, you really seem to know very little about him and what he did. Aren't you the one who didn't even know he was not on the HCUA?
Which people did he accuse that did not later, much later unfortunately but finally, turn out to be guilty? Got any names?
Or perhaps you could explain why investigate potential problems is not a question for the Senate to investigate?
What did McCarthy do that you think was so wrong?
I fully agree and said in several notes, that the HCUA was a shameful 30 years of American History. They were not investigating govt employees for security, either. So don't muddle the two

You keep talking about a single letter as if there were only one. There were 6, not 1. Only 1 mentioned Abedin by name. Though, as I originally said, we might be able to infer her in the other 5. Maybe.
