Carney Accuses Whistleblower Lawyer of Spreading Misinformation as He Spreads Misinformation About Clearance Requests

Since Benghazi happened “such a long time ago” White House Press Sec. Jay Carney obviously didn’t even want to bothered with it today in his daily press briefing.

But Fox News’ Ed Henry asked, so Carney told him “both the State Department and Department of Defense have made clear that they are not aware of any requests for a security clearance for a private attorney.”

Unbelievable since it was only YESTERDAY that House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Issa released the FOUR letters he has written requesting that the Administration make information available for lawyers representing Benghazi whistleblowers:

“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.

The State Department has also denied that employees were being intimidated if they provided new information about the attacks to Congress, but since members of this Regime lie about everything, why should we believe them?

“The State Department is deeply committed to meeting its obligation to protect employees, and the State Department would never tolerate — tolerate or sanction — retaliation against whistle-blowers on any issue, including this one,” spokesman Patrick Ventrell told reporters at a briefing on Tuesday. “That’s an obligation we take very seriously — full stop.

Uh huh.

Carney actually accused Victoria Toensing, the lawyer who is representing one of the State Department employees, of spreading misinformation and politicizing this issue. {{{Attack-Watch!}}}

Toensing responded to the slander today. She finally got a letter, forwarded to her from Chairman Issa, dated May 1 from the State Dept. responding to the request for clearance of which the White House claims they were “unaware”.  The letter stated they routinely give clearances and referred her to a legal advisor’s office, which thus far has been giving her the run-around.

Toensing also noted that it’s the lawyers who should get the clearance.  “Why are they asking for this employee to come in and expose herself/himself?” she asked.

She said she couldn’t predict whether or not they would be able to get the clearance they need, but she promised that she wouldn’t give up.

Unbelieveable what we’re living through, right now, folks.

  1. Well there is a silver lining to the lying. If they’re lying you know you’re on the right track. Just keep pushing in that direction see what there is to find.


  2. Well, Paul McCartney won’t even have to leave this country to feel right at home “Back in the USSR”!

    This whole country is becoming such an amalgam of “Animal Farm” and “1984.”
