Hillary Clinton as secretary of state supported Muslim Brotherhood member and former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

According to a declassified State Department document obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, Clinton visited Morsi after he took office in 2012 and offered American help on things like police and security.

"We know that Egypt is transforming, and we need a transformed relationship for the 21st century," the document of talking points for Clinton read.

"We stand behind Egypt's transition to democracy. This is not only the right thing to do. It is in our interest as well."

Later in the document, there is a list of things America pledged to the Egyptian government.

"Another shared priority to explore is police and civilian security sector reform," the document read. "If the Egyptian government is interested, a team from across the U.S. government could visit Egypt to discuss a framework for cooperation at an appropriate time."

Clinton also called Morsi's election to the presidency a "milestone."

Morsi was in office from 2012-2013. The United Kingdom designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization last year, which goes against official U.S. policy regarding the group.

President Barack Obama might be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, conservative radio host Michael Savage recently told Newsmax.
