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

    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.”

    Toensing declined to name her client. She also refused to say whether the individual was on the ground in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorist attacks on two U.S. installations in the Libyan city killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

    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.

    “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].”

    for something that, as then secretary of state hillary suggested, doesn't make any difference, there sure is a lot of angst

    why all the hiding?

    an awful lot of questions, no?

    why all the warnings ignored, why no military response, why the blaming of the video, why the claim that aq was on the run, why has no one been held responsible?

    why did the president go to bed?

    and how could anyone in the white house suggest that none of it makes any difference?

    Not surprised, but get ready for the bots to attack everything from the source, to ultimately, whistleblowers themselves...

    In all honesty we have heard these horrible allegations before and had them turn out to be overblown and sometimes complete BS. But I am quite sure if this turns out to be true this will be the big event that we keep hearing is coming that will take Obama down for good. It is a good thing perjury only happens with sworn testimony or else we would need a federal prison just for faux news.

    You guys keep on grabbing for those straws and maybe one day you will get the evil overlord Obama.

    Isn't it interesting that we couldn't get answers about these dead Americans before the election, and now not after the election... but Obama sure found energy and effort to ignore his laser-like focus on the economy to try and begin a serious onslaught against the 2nd Amendment before the bodies in Sandy Hook had reached room temperature.

    Of course... putting out the "it was a Scary Movie" narrative in an attempt to hide their incompetence behind the deaths of these four Americans doesn't help matters.

    When it comes to lies... Remember what happened to Scooter Libby. He didn't lie, he simply didn't recall something and found his ass behind bars... even though the prosecutor knew it was Colin Powell's sidekick Richard Armitage who was the leaker.
    The Clintons are what happens...

    Quod erat demonstrandum.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Well, it seems clear to me that you are well aware of the well deserved reputation of your source. Just because you quote the biggest liar in the business and predict that someone is going to say that you cannot rely on their information does not make what they said true. However, you are quite astute in recognizing the obvious that faux news is a bunch of liars who no one with a brain trusts.

    It will be interesting to watch what happens to these whistleblowers, following the proper lawful protocols, and how people react to what occurs to them in relation to something like Bradley Manning who wantonly violated the law.

    Perjury? No biggie, just ask Bill Clinton.

    We got it, instead of discussing the thread topic, you want to attack the source, just as I said someone would....You don't like FNC, *YAWN*!!!
