The attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers told Fox News Monday that her client and others were threatened by the Obama administration with retaliation if they testified before Congress on the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate on Sept. 11.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” attorney Victoria Toensing told Fox. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

She said these whistleblower government employees were made “well aware that their careers will be over” if they testify about events that led to U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other diplomats being killed in Benghazi.

According to Fox News, Toensing represents one of the State Department employees:

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.

Toensing’s husband, Joe diGenova spoke on a DC radio station Monday and said the State Department was refusing to grant security clearances to the lawyers representing the Benghazi whistleblowers in yet another attempt to prevent their testimony.

However, during a Tuesday press conference, President Obama denied having any knowledge of any attempts by his administration to prevent the whistleblowers’ testimony.

And we know from Sec. of State John Kerry that he believes all the Benghazi questions have been asked and answered and that his State Department has “a lot more important things to move on to and get done.”
