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.

Ironic that Hanoi Jane is in the news. Anyone besides me thing that these brave souls will end up victims of the Hanoi GOP when they (GOP)sell them (whistleblowers) out?

Unnamed Obama admin officials? Has it come to this? Now you not only don’t need a birth certificate, you don’t need a name?

Nobody should be surprised by this. Nobody.

At least, anyone whose had their "thinking hat" on, knows that the usurper has threatened anyone who dare to question his Constitutional eligibility to be the Commander in Chief to begin with. Let alone, carry out all of the subsequent subversion/destruction/lies and other unconstitutional acts.

They don’t need lawyers, they need 24/7/365 protection that can’t be bought out by the other side.

I’d suggest some retired SEALs.

Why can’t these witnesses testify before the House Select Committee on Intelligence? Surely the members and staff must already have clearances that enable them to discuss Benghazi or whatever they want. Otherwise, why have the committee at all?

“It is unavoidable that Department employees identifying themselves as witnesses in the Committee’s investigation will apply for a security clearance to allow their personal attorneys to handle sensitive or classified material,” Issa wrote.

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

Since this orginated with FNC the MSM will ignore it.....at their peril, once the hearings begin.

We've become so calloused to his administration's behaviour, we (me) forget that it's clear they are subverting the country and its laws.

impeach for dereliction of duty.

Good for them. I understand testimony is being held up because State won't process their attorneys security clearances. Security clearances are routine in cases like this. Victoria Toensing, who represents someone, has been complaining about this.

Testify without representation? They’re not stupid, and there’s no reason for their attorneys not to be cleared.

Because........from the article

“And that should be enough,” Ventrell said at Monday’s press briefing. “Congress has its own prerogatives, but we’ve had a very thorough, independent investigation, which we completed and [which was] transparent and shared. And there are many folks who are, in a political manner, trying to sort of use this for their own political means, or ends.”
