Benghazi Whistleblower Attorney: I Have More People Who Want to Testify (Audio)

Benghazi Whistleblower Attorney: I Have More People Who Want to Testify -- The Blaze

The attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers told TheBlaze Radio that he has more people who want to come forward to testify.

Joseph diGenova, attorney for acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Counterterrorism Mark Thompson, did not specify how many new witnesses there were, but said they had been “on the ground” and “in the fight” during the September assault that left four Americans dead. Thompson was one of three whistleblowers who went before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

“We’ve been contacted by some people on the ground who were there, who were in the fight, who want to come forward but who fear if they do they will never get contract work with the agency again,” diGenova told TheBlaze Radio host Jay Severin on Thursday. “We are going to test the director of central intelligence’s word [that those who testify will not be penalized]. If these people decide they want to come forward, the first thing we’re going to do is go to the director’s office and say here they are, how are you going to protect them?” (SCROLL for audio)

My Comment: We still have not heard from the men (and women?) who survived the Benghazi consulate attack. I can appreciate their concerns on being black-listed from future work if they come forward to testify ..... but I suspect that with this past week's testimony that some will come forward .... and their testimony will be even more riveting because they will give a face to those who were actually there.
