Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On #Benghazi, Lawyer Says

This is not the flag you are looking for: A video did it!!

Color me NOT surprised:

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.”[...]

However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider 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.[Video maker still in jail..ed]

“It's frightening, and they're doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we're going to kill you,’ or not ‘we're going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

1 The wall of protection the MSM puts up is fragile. One leak in this dam is enough to let the truth out and ruin the whole protective illusion. When this dyke breaks it's going to be every reporter in DC trying to prove himself by dumping the mostest dirt the fastest on The One. (I suspect, I hope, maybe.)

4 I don't know Storm.
CBS,NBC,CNN,ABC all say nothing here, move on.
Only FOX even brings up the subject and they are preaching to a shrinking <48% pool of voters.
Add some unlimited immigration water to the mix and Fox and the blogs preach to 40%.
The rest get the media matters script which does not mention the L word.

5 @ SSGB: If the MSM is not willing to tell the American public about the Gosnell trial which is horrendous in the extreme, what makes anyone think they are willing to allow the truth about Benghazi to come out. The one thing the Dems are good at is circling the wagons and lying about the truth.

6 the obamunists r more interested in protecting the islamoterrorists than americans.

how they're handling benghazi is similar 2 how they r handling tsarnaev.

coupled with mubaraks ouster and the close embrce of erdogan and the retreat from afghanistan and iraq and one can only conlcude that the obamaunists r not 4 peace; the r on the other side.

7 Similar case in Eurabia:

"The positions taken by Luc Trullemans published on his Facebook page this Friday, April 26, and the various interviews he gave thereafter, are incompatible with his position as a public figure representing RTL, and the duty to reserve associated with it, "said RTL Belgium.

8 It makes no difference if these people talk or not their careers are over with by just knowing the truth.
The Admin will shuttle them off to the ends of the earth and forget them.
