Congressman Issa Responds To Obama’s Remarks On Benghazi Whistleblowers

oversight

Immediately after President Obama stated that he had no knowledge of efforts to block whistleblowers from telling their stories in regard to the Benghazi attack, Congressman and Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee , Darrell Issa ( R-CA) issued the following statement:

“A lawyer for Benghazi whistleblowers has publicly stated that the State Department is blocking her client’s ability to talk freely with counsel. Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this Administration make information available about how lawyers – who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistleblowers – can be cleared to fully hear their clients’ stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama Administration.”

“Even if the President really doesn’t know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistleblowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The President’s unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistleblowers only aids those in his Administration who are intimidating them,” Issa Said.

Congressman Issa has presented four letters to the Administration requesting that information be made available to whistleblower’s attorneys in the Benghazi case.
