We now have a Senate Majority Leader spreading an unsubstantiated, uncorroborated and anonymous rumor about a political party opponent not paying taxes (Gov Romney) and likewise we have Members of Congress accusing (unsubstantiated, uncorroborated) an American citizen who has worked tirelessly for the State Department (Huma Abedin) of being connected to the Muslim Brotherhood — and BOTH WITHOUT ANY FACTS WHATSOEVER!
What is going on with everyone ?
What is particularly shameful is that the politicians doing this are lawyers. They, of anyone, should know better. They have had express training (Evidence) about how painful, rotten and dishonest anonymous sources are. Rumors and anonymous sources are CONDEMNED in the courtroom. They are unprovable, uncorroborated and used for one purpose only: to smear. Why should smearing be treated any differently outside the courtroom?
(and by the way, I know Huma and have for about 15 years. It is absurd to accuse her of being in anyway disloyal.)
