Are there actually some good, honest people at the State Department?

I remain skeptical, with very good reason. But I suppose anything’s possible.

James Rosen at Fox News reports:

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.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA…”

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.

The truth is going to come out, one way or another. And the coverup is, if not worse than the crime in this case, at least as bad.

Obama doesn’t care about any of that, of course, because he’s never had to deal with the real world. His entire life, he’s been able to lie and cheat and deflect to get what he wants. But as we’ve seen these last few weeks, his luck is running out.

And Hillary just wants to be president. She’ll tell any lie she needs to. Hell, she’ll tell a lie even if she doesn’t need to. She’s just a liar.

I’ll stand behind anyone at the State Department who’s willing to tell the truth. Even if I’m doing it on one good leg.

P.S. Benghazi survivor: Help was close enough but never sent.
