    Actually, he never said he was demoted.

    If he said he was demoted, then sure I would call him a liar. But I don't believe that's what he said.

    Re: State Department disputes diplomatís charges of retaliation

    This is fascinating and VERY reminiscent of the Paula Jones scandal in which Ann Coulter had the role of Toensing. The lawyers, ostensibly representing Jones, had zero interest Jones and a laser focus on hurting the President and ultimately pushed Jones to lie and then abandoned her when it became clear she had no credibility. They pushed Jones into that disaster that resulted in Jones becoming a national joke.

    Hicks is smarter than Jones and I don't think he is going to fall for his manipulation much longer.

    The very fact that Hicks lawyer is making these public statements is evidence that the goal is not to protect and represent Hicks, but to attack the administration.

    It is so transparently political it is embarrassing.

    so he is a liar, because it was HIS choice not to return to his job.

    he said "effectively demoted"


    Effectively
    1. In an effective way.
    2. For all practical purposes; in effect: "Though a few rebels still held out, the fighting was effectively ended."

    then he has no basis to call himself a whistleblower, if he has not been adversely affected by his actions
