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.

Obama administration has officials without names? Are they aliens?

Victoria Toensing is not someone you would want to
cross swords with. At least these people have the
best representation they could get.
This is the depth the country has been lowered to. The oval office is openly committing the crime of using its office to obstruct justice, and is supported by its “justice” department.
Give us the names.......
If rank and file feds are being threatened, all it will take is one spark to set off an explosion. Most federal employees are good troupers. They want to do a good job, to be respected by their superiors, and to not make waves. Every new set of politicals has to win their trust.
In my own very informal soundings, I hear a lot of grumbling about the Obama politicals, and partisan politics aside (a majority of feds being dems), there is a significant subcurrent of "the Bush people were better." If the Obama folks are drawing blood, the permanent government knows how to fight back. The career staff knows where all the bodies are buried, and plenty of them know how to leak info.
As H. Clinton would say: “What difference does it make.”
I don't think we've heard the last of that.
Remember, the EO is still in the courts and just last week the judge hearing the case expressed skepticism that the DOJ had any right to withhold the documents.
Trey Gowdy said to get ready for some fireworks on Benghazi this week. Already starting today with the whistleblowers stories.
Then why don't they? There has to be someone willing to spill the beans on Zero. Look at all the leaks that happen during a Repub administration. Are people leaking on Zero and the "media" are doing their best to hush it up by not reporting/investigating it? (Probably!) Whereas the "media" love to publish rumors and such as fact on Repub admins.
I hope they are protecting the witnesses who will break Benghazi wide open in a televised Congressional hearing (that the alphabet networks probably won't show live, or will cut away quickly if they do, and never report on it).
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
The whistleblowers may just have tradecraft on their side. (Be careful when threatening someone whose group motto is ‘Admit nothing, Deny everything, Make counter accusations.’)
