Speaker John Boehner: Remove Michele Bachmann from the Intelligence Committee

    1. Sponsored by

      People For the American Way

Rep. Michele Bachmann has all-too-often voiced dangerous conspiracy theories claiming that the Obama administration is "aiding and abetting" radical Islamist groups. While Bachmann was roundly mocked and criticized for the baseless remarks, they were a hit in conspiratorial right-wing circles.

Members of the House Intelligence Committee are entrusted with classified information that affects the safety and security of all Americans. That information should not be in the hands of anyone with such a disregard for honesty, misunderstanding of national security, and lack of respect for his or her fellow public servants.

Bachmann's false and irresponsible attacks have gone too far even for her fellow Republicans and it is time she is removed from the House Intelligence Committee. This isn’t a Democrat vs. Republican issue. It's about defending all of our values.

      This is the intelligence committee, not the counterintelligence .committee. No Place for an openly racist and bigoted person to embarrass the Republican Party and the country. I think she needs professional help. She has deep seated hatred issues and is paranoid delusional.

      She is totally irresponsible and lies about things like the assistant to Hillary Clinton. She's dangerous and can't be trusted.

      This woman is an embarrassment to the people of the U.S. because of her ignorant and prejudiced smears of better people than herself. That such a person should sit on an "intelligence" committee is a very bad joke. She needs to be replaced with an intelligent person.
