Top Trump aide retweets suggestion that Clinton was behind terror video

Top Trump aide retweets suggestion that Clinton was behind terror video | 02 Jan 2016 | Michael Cohen, a top aide to Donald Trump, promoted a pair of tweets Saturday that suggested Hillary Clinton was behind a new terrorist recruiting video featuring Trump. The video, purportedly produced by Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab [in the I-CIA-SIS Langley, Virginia, HQ?], uses historic civil rights era footage of Malcolm X and audio of Trump to label the United States a racist society, citing the real-estate mogul's proposed ban on Muslims entering the U.S. The clip surfaced several weeks after Clinton suggested at a Democratic debate that Trump's comments were being used in ISIS videos to recruit terrorists, though neither she nor her campaign presented any evidence at the time.
