There are new revelations in the investigation into the controversial Uranium One deal, with an FBI informant telling lawmakers Wednesday that Russia paid millions to a U.S. lobbying firm in hopes of influencing the Hillary Clinton-run State Department.
The Justice Department has lifted the gag order on a former FBI informant, giving him the green light to testify before Congress about what he knows about a controversial Obama-era uranium deal.
The first public hearing of the Benghazi Select Committee, chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), is scheduled for Sept. 17. On America's Newsroom this morning, Eric Shawn talked to attorney Victoria Toensing, who has participated in the congressional investigations into the attack that killed four Americans two years ago.
The White House has praised former diplomat Thomas Pickering's work on the State Departments ARB report into the Benghazi attack, saying he and former Joint Chiefs chairman Mike Mullen are "of unimpeachable expertise and credibility." Critics, however, have questioned whether the ARB report is really a full account of what took place in Benghazi, pointing out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was never even interviewed.
"Mr. Pickering didn't have investigative experience and it showed," said attorney Victoria Toensing, who spoke with Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends this morning. Toensing was deputy attorney general under Ronald Reagan and is representing Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks.
Earlier today, we learned about a bombshell report that said the CIA's Benghazi talking points were changed 12 times, with extensive input from the State Department. It comes after State Department whistleblower Gregory Hicks testified Wednesday that he was shocked when he saw Susan Rice blame a protest on numerous Sunday shows on the weekend after the terror attack.
Victoria Toensing is an attorney representing one of the Benghazi whistleblowers. Three people were identified today as the whistleblowers who will testify before congressional hearing on Wednesday on the September 11, 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.
Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied allegations that Obama administration officials are trying to silence Benghazi whistleblowers. Carney said, “What you have is an attorney saying she represents somebody, claiming she’s not getting security clearance and yet the agencies involved have no information about that at all.”
Fox News' James Rosen reported yesterday on a new revelation in the fallout from the Benghazi attack, as whistleblowers within the State Department or CIA claim they have been threatened by Obama administration officials.
At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers, or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.
