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.

Obama did say he would side with the Muslims.
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?
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.
The noose is tightening.
Yo, POSHITUS, how does the de-coup d’tat feel for ya?
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?
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.
impeach for dereliction of duty.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
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.

And that should be enough, Ventrell said at Mondays press briefing. Congress has its own prerogatives, but weve 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.
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.
This is one you really must click on the link to read the article.
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.
Well, this will torpedo Hillary’s 2016....looks like the battle for the Dem nomination will be between Biden, Cuomo, O’Malley, and Villagarossa..geez..almost makes one long for Carter..
I pray there will not be an Arkincide befall any of those Benghazi witnesses nor their families.
Benghazi bump for later.....
Of course they are being threatened. The lies are going to be exposed and its not going to be pretty.
“We’ve investigated ourselves and we’re all good”.
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.
here is the same article on the Foxnews webpage:
Good job. It looks like breaking news material to me, but at least front page news by any measure, I’d think.
...and it’s now in News/Activism. Thanks, Moderator
Bring this bastard DOWN!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Because that is all congress is good for - forming committees and having meaningless hearings.
Seems like I recall that Obama did some executive order lifting some of the whistleblower protections awhile back....???
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That he did and it is going to come back to bite him like a pit bull on a rampage.
Obama vs. the CIA. This could get pretty interesting. I wonder what the level loyalty within the CIA is to each other, vs. to the current administration? Are they going to cover for him when he let some of theirs die?
it stuns me how hypocritical and stupid the left are.
They know damn well if a republican had said this and had acted like this with concerts, going to bed when Americans were under attack, going to Vegas, having fancy dinners and fast and furious then they would be all over this but because this is their guy then it’s alright in their minds.
This would have been playing 24/7 but because b0zo the clown states this then they all shut up in the media
Obama vs. the FBI now, too.
We have to keep up the pressure, keep the information coursing.
