Further, at least four career intelligence officials say they have been directly threatened by the Obama administration to keep this scandal under wraps.
Obama administration officials threatened whistle-blowers on Benghazi-Lawyer
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.
Toensing declined to name her client... However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators considered relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.
It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people, she said... Federal law provides explicit protections for federal government employees who are identified as whistle-blowers. The laws aim to ensure these individuals will not face repercussions from their superiors, or from other quarters, in retaliation for their provision of information about corruption or other forms of wrongdoing to Congress, or to an agencys inspector-general.
Spread this story far and wide. It’s time to break vintage media’s embargo.
It’s time to drag John Boehner out of the bar, wake him up, and name a Special Prosecutor.
This is impeachment material. Impeachment material.
Thanks for the info!
My heart is just sick reading this stuff.we all knew it from the beginning but to have our suspicions confirmed cannot help but leave a hole in your heart.
Obama needs to be put under oath and a special prosecutor assigned.
Rotsa Ruck wit dat. That boy is a party animal!
I must say in his defense, he is extremely affable and polite, very well mannered, and the best tailored-guy in DC. He's not into rough weird trade like Condit, or drugs, like Ted K. He does love the ladies, and apparently they him. He is also extremely wealthy, but doesn't wave it around.
Quite the astute power-broker politician, he has the savvy to keep his dirty work in the House handled by underlings in such a way that it hardly interferes with his hectic, ethanol-fueled social (and sex) life. He is the epitome of the safe-seat, big-bucks RINO and is well rewarded by his colleagues "across the aisle" when it comes to slicing up the swag.
O yeah. He's gotta go.
