THREATS AGAINST BENGHAZI WHISTLEBLOWERS ALLEGED
Greta Wire ^ | 04.29.13 | James Rosen

Posted on 04/29/2013 3:29:17 PM PDT by Perdogg

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 whistleblowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

What's wrong with selecting a lawyer who already has such a clearance?

According to an article I read elsewhere, the attorney already has a TS clearance. But, that doesn't mean she is "read in" to the program in question.

Although the same federal agency does all clearance investigations, every sponsoring federal agency has their own set of requirements for a given clearance level. And especially at the TS level, individual programs can have additional requirements.

If someone already meets the requirements, it's just a matter of making the request. But, the program sponsor has to make or approve the request. And, it looks like the State Dept. is being passive aggressive to deny these whistleblowers access to independent counsel.

I emphasized independent for a reason: the only lawyers with the necessary clearance are probably already working for the State Dept. And frankly, I wouldn't want them representing me.

Greta, please don’t let the traitorous b*stards slip under the radar. Thank you for publishing this story on your blog. It’s a great start.

Does anyone expect otherwise with the Obama Administration - obsufucate, block, intimidate and refuse the sun shine on the truth. Next the Obama administration will strive to kill the people. Watch Obama have a temper tantrum! Obama will not finish his 2nd term, and Joe Biden will be implicated too. Get ready for President John Boehner - another first president and vice president having to give up the office as both are guilty of treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Watch the stock market go to heck for a time.

It only took 2 days for Obumbles to find a lawyer for the Boston Bomber, but for careerists in the CIA and State Department nada.

I’m sorry this got moved out of breaking news and into the bloggers/personal section.

Whether or not it’s breaking news, a story this big breaking on Greta Van Susteren’s official Fox News blog at least belongs on the main page.

I hope the sidebar mod might reconsider this decision.

This article was written by Fox News’ James Rosen. If we’re the anti-MSM, this is news, and should be front and center.

Good job. It looks like breaking news material to me, but at least front page news by any measure, I’d think.
