Victoria Toensing: Administration Officials Are Threatening Benghazi Witnesses & Whistleblowers Into Keeping Quiet

Yup.

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 September 11, 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 falsely 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].”

If the media was really interested in being the Watchdog of Democracy, they might start looking into a hot little story: The Obama administration's threats against, and retalliation against, and prosecutions of, people who would be considered protected by Whistleblower statutes in any other administration.

But the "watchdogs" have given the foxes free reign in the coop.
