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...

    See report below from my FNC colleague Chad Pergram: Fox has obtained three letters, sent to the top legal counsels at the CIA, Pentagon and State Department, about getting clearance to interview witnesses from those agencies/departments about Benghazi.

In the letters, the House Oversight Committee asks for a pledge that those departments/agencies will not “take any...
