Fox Nation WATCH: Judge Nap Interviews Lawyer for Family of US-Born 'ISIS Bride'
Not already a Fox Nation member?
Hassan Shibly, the attorney for the family of the American-born woman who left the country and married a trio of ISIS militants, spoke about Hoda Muthana's case on "Liberty File" on Fox Nation.
Shibly said he is not representing Muthana but is instead advising her stateside family, who reportedly live in Alabama.
Judge Andrew Napolitano noted that Muthana, who was born in New Jersey, has made numerous statements in support of killing innocent Americans and waging Jihad against the West.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Fox News Sunday that he is seeking to deny her re-entry to the United States.
Shibly said Muthana held an American passport, but added it has since been "nullified" by the Obama administration.
Shibly called ISIS a "horrible gang of monsters" who have tainted the religion of Islam and said the group has targeted Muslims over non-Muslims by a large plurality.
He said ISIS would consider him an "infidel" despite the fact he is Muslim.
"[Muthana's] family contacted me," he recalled of how he became involved in the situation.
Napolitano asked if Muthana is aware that she may be tried for treason if she is able to get back to the United States.
Shibly said Muthana is reportedly "disgusted and horrified" at the person she became under the "spell" of her husbands, and is willing to face the American legal system.
Alabama Democratic Sen. Doug Jones said the White House should allow Muthana back into the country so that she can indeed face justice.
"While I certainly understand the initial reaction to prohibit Hoda Muthana from coming back to the United States, I am concerned that allowing anyone who has committed crimes against the people of this country to remain beyond the reach of our justice system is the wrong approach and sends the wrong message," Jones said in a weekend statement.
“I would tell them please forgive me for being so ignorant, and I was really young and ignorant and I was 19 when I decided to leave,” Muthana reportedly said.
However, in 2015, Muthana allegedly operated a Twitter account that, on at least one occasion, tried to incite Americans to commit acts of violence on national holidays.
“Americans wake up! Men and women altogether. You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!” she once wrote, according to The Guardian. “Go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriots, Memorial, etc day … Kill them.”
