Glenn Beck has a theory about why Michele Bachmann is under investigation by the Office of Congressional Ethics, and it's not because her 2012 presidential campaign allegedly committed campaign finance violations: It's because the U.S. has been "infiltrated" by "radical Islam," and Bachmann got on the wrong side of it.

"You see what they're doing to Michele Bachmann?" Beck asked. "Michele Bachmann is under all kinds of ethics investigations now. Why do you suppose that is? She's evil? She is uber-clear on what's going on. Uber clear."

He continued that the State Department is "pushing" Somalis into Minnesota, and Bachmann tried to find out why. "She hasn't gotten any answers, and now she's under investigation," Beck said.
