Congressman: Benghazi Whistleblowers May Testify Before Congress Next Week

Well, this could get interesting.

Utah representative Jason Chaffetz suggested that whistleblowers with “personal, firsthand knowledge” of last September 11’s attacks in Benghazi will speak at a congressional hearing next week. Fox News’s Bill Hemmer pressed Chaffetz on whether these individuals would come out publicly for the first time at the recently announced hearing. “I think they will be appearing,” Chaffetz said, “some of them, some of them.”

And from "The Most Transparent Administration Ever"(tm): You can take the community organizer out of Chicago politics but you can't take the Chicago politics out of the community organizer/President.

At least three State Department employees and one CIA employee have faced pressure as they prepare to testify at upcoming hearings on the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi attack before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, according to an attorney for one of the witnesses.

Federal law prohibits any effort to obstruct or intimidate witnesses in a congressional hearing.

Victoria Toensing, an attorney for one of the witnesses, said these were not direct threats. Rather, she said, administration officials have insinuated witnesses could lose their jobs or get passed up for promotions if they testify.

“They’re not telling them they’re going to put them through the guillotine tomorrow,” Toensing told the Washington Free Beacon. “It’s subtle intimidation.”

“People understand that if they talk, they’re going to lose a job or not get the next promotion, or if they’ve been there long enough they should retire,” she added.

Yesterday Obama was asked about these whistleblowers and he said he hadn't heard anything about them. He also didn't say, "of course people should be free to tell what they know". He just said he'd look into it.

I guess he was too busy talking to Jason Collins ("Who?"--99% of Americans) to keep up on a little thing like an investigation into the death of one of his ambassadors.

*I changed the headline. They may not be survivors but people who were on duty that night in DC or elsewhere. We'll see.
