Did Administration Threaten Benghazi Whistleblowers?


Their lawyer says the O admin did

(Fox News) At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi — that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

Ms. Toensing has refused to identify her client, but has stated that the person has knowledge on what happened in the months before the 9/11 attack, during the attack, and after the attack. She has further stated that the threats are about the ending of careers if people testify, a clear violation of federal law.

It’s been over 7 months, and we still do not fully know what happened, particularly before and during the attack. The O administration has been stonewalling and stalling, refusing to provide the full information. Of course, let’s admit that Republicans made a huge mistake in focusing on the talking points surrounding the video that supposedly started the attack.

And you have a special forces operator stating that forces could have gotten to Benghazi by at least the 2nd attack, and that the special forces community feels betrayed.

It should be very interesting when these folks sit down and testify in front of Congress. Of course, liberals have already wrote the deaths of Americans, including our ambassador, as a “big nothing burger.” These are the same people who whined about the August 6th PDB and the “Downing Street Memo” for over half a decade (some still are), yet want no details of Benghazi.
