Whistleblower Hicks, a Democrat, voted for Obama and guess who else?

It turns out that the Benghazi whistleblower who offered the riveting testimony at Wednesday’s House Oversight Committee and turned the Obama administration into liars is a registered Democrat.

Gregory Hicks

Gregory Hicks: “I’ve never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career as on that day.”

On addition, Gregory Hicks, who served as deputy chief of mission in Libya during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary election and Barack Obama in the last two general elections.

This information was disclosed Saturday to the Daily Caller by Hicks’ lawyer, Victoria Toensing.

“The fact is he is a registered Democrat in Virginia. The fact is he voted for Hilary in the primary and Obama and then again for Obama,” Toensing told the Caller, adding that she was unaware of this fact until the day before the committee hearing.

“I’m not interested in that,” she said. “I’m interested in government not abusing its powers.”

This information, if nothing else, adds an enormous amount of credibility to Hicks’ compelling and already highly credible testimony.

Hicks testified that his Sept. 11 calls for help were ignored and his attempts to send assistance to Benghazi were thwarted. He also testified that he was demoted after cooperating with congressional investigators and questioning the White House talking points that blamed the incident on a YouTube video.

Those talking points were pushed by Amb. Susan Rice during a 5-show marathon on the Sunday following the attack, and directly contradicted his report and that of the Libyan president.

Watching the Sunday news shows, Hicks was shocked. “The net impact of what has transpired is the spokesperson of the most powerful country in the world has basically said that the President of Libya is either a liar or doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” he accused. Hicks added, “My jaw hit the floor as I watched this…I’ve never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career as on that day.”

The State Department has since denied that Hicks was demoted following the events in Benghazi, a claim his lawyer refutes.

“The State Department is lying — saying he was not demoted,” according to Toensing. “It is almost impossible under law for them to take away anybody’s salary. But they demoted him to a job where he has no meaningful work,” she said. “He had a choice between no job whatsoever and a job that didn’t have any meaningful work. And I say this is like telling a starving man he can have no food or he can have the rotten beef. And if he chooses the rotten beef, is that a choice?”

    It goes to show you how far these people will go in telling a lie and keep up with a lie. It shows that Hicks and his attorney has all the evidence that they need in writing and these news jockeys are still out their saying what they have is not true. Are we suppose to believe the media? How with anyone with even one brain cell dispute what the facts and truth is? How ignorant have we become in this nation or how lazy have we become? I will say it again Obama, Clinton and the news media are all in the same bed with each other. Why would we want Clinton as the next Prsident? Its ok I guess to have a Liar and Chief as Prsident of this country anymore. Its ok at whatever cost or expence for these people to hang onto the power that has been intrusted to the. So what if people are getting killed so what if they run around lying about it just let me keep my politiacal career. Just leave me a lone let me play golf, basketball, go on costly vacations, etc and by all means you do not have the right to second guess me. Whatever happen to the words accountability, honesty, integrity, etc? Whatever happen to holding your hand on the Bible and swearing to God and man for the world to see that you are going to uphold the constitution and protect this country? Gone Gone Gone are those days.

      It also shows that even if you are somebody who supports obama, he will turn on you if you refuse to lie for him when he is in trouble. Many othewise evil people at least have enough integrity to take care of their own supporters, but Obama wont even do that.

    Why does it matter who the president is Dane if what you are in a rant about is that they still play golf, take expensive vacations, etc? Both Republican and Democrats who gain the presidency do this. Since the likes of Issa and his buddies jump on situations before they have been resolved and/or examined you are going to always have this brouhaha . If people could wait until the government does their thing, then let the media further hash it out before congressional fighting starts it would be less foolishness. No one here could have done better yet you all have rants. Be patient and wait to see how this plays out. As for all the ugly descriptions of Obama…race, and you really should step back and think of something else, that is getting tired. Everybody has to be a politician these days?

    Because he is a Liberal, no doubt, does make him one of the jellyfish that crap'd in the walking, leaky bag of crap that needs to be takin to the toilet and flushed.The fact that knowing what he knew and he still voted that administration in, is bewildering. Who whould do that is beyond my reasoning ability.The fact that he stepped foward and blew the whistle is honorable,and I give him that.Being he's a liberal gives him credability. If he were a consevative we all know where this would go.

    This is what we have to work with.Let's focus on taking the leaky bag of crap to the toilet where it belongsa and flush it. No more Obama, No more Clinton. No more Dems or Reps .. Long live the Libertarians!!!
