Whistleblower Lawyer: State Dept Spokesman 'Either Incompetent Or Liar'
Breitbart ^ | 4/30/13 | Larry O'Connor

Posted on 04/30/2013 8:39:16 AM PDT by Nachum

Attorney Victoria Toensing represents a whilstleblower from the State Department who is intent on telling the truth about the attacks on the US Consolate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. Yesterday she went public with the news that the State Department is refusing to grant her security clearance so that she can properly represent her client as the House Oversight committee prepares for investigative hearings on the attacks.

State Dept. spokesman Patrick Ventrell told reporters he was unaware of any issues regarding security clearances for attorneys and added that he had no knowledge of any whistleblowers either.

In the present State Department, I’m thinking it’s both.

This administration wishes the whole thing will just go away but their actions only make them sink deeper in the quicksand.

The state dept already let one low level DS agent testify..one who wasn’t there..Alex was his name. So the argument about having low level people testify is bogus.
THe issue is that congress and the people want to hear the story from someone who was there and survived..at both locations. So far the only people we have heard from are people who weren’t there.

I’m betting on “a very competent liar”, as that seems to be the first and foremost prerequisite for applying for a position in this administration.

This is classic lawyer-speak for "I know you are right, but I'm not going to be caught perjuring myself, and you can't prove otherwise". Another classic one is "There is no evidence of that", made famous by Shrillary.

Competent reporters know this, and if they weren't wearing Obama kneepads, they would have immediately called him out for his evasive answer.

Curious how good is Victoria Toensing? She is going to have to be very good to take on this administration. I see the admistrations game plan as trying to make it into 2014 elections thinking they can take back the House. If their plan works then Victoria Toensing and her clients are toast.

I wouldn’t want to mess with Toensing or her husband Joe DeGenova. Pushovers they’re not.

“State department spokesman”?

The LIAR in chief today stated that HE knew nothing of these accusations but “would look into them”.

I'd say this is exactly right.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

A whistleblower cannot get legal counsel, yet those held in Guantanamo have access to the best legal minds? Ugh.....

It is my understanding she had a hand in crafting many of the laws being broken, so she’s probably the best Lawyer in the world to have.
