Throughout the course of the Obama administration I have been disturbed by the treatment of Whistleblowers.
People who stand up and report corruption are treated as traitors. Some have even gone to prison for it.

Am I the only person who sees this as a symptom of a grossly corrupted government?

"The Department of State is refusing to grant clearances to Victoria (Toensing) and other people who want to represent the whistleblowers in an attempt to prevent the testimony," DiGenova said, referring to the upcoming hearing before Rep. Darrel Issa's House Oversight Committee.

DiGenova believes that this will be a "constitutional showdown" that this Administration’s attempt to cover-up will end in failure.


If memory serves me correctly the Whitehouse would not allow a Kevin O’Reilly to testify in the Fast and Furious and nobody stopped them then. Who is going to stop them now?

Nothing will come of this, I'm afraid.

This whole administration should be sitting in a Federal Prison. MHO

I wouldn't be so certain. You may well be right and I've voiced the same concern ...but then, I'm sure Tricky Dick never thought he'd be resigning in disgrace ...and I'm certain Reagan never thought his little deal with Iran to help his pets in Central America would become the stuff of CSPAN type hearings what seemed like forever.

Tides can turn and attitudes can flip. If Obama pushes the whole apple cart too far, it could tip right over and dump his load all over the street. It really depends on whether Congress continues, as a whole, to humor him and whether this reaches the higher Court levels or not.

The courts aren't being Obama friendly and haven't since a certain humiliation he thought was cute at his State of the Union Speech (can we say OOOOPS?!). Congress could clean his clock in short order ...IF they were of a bipartisan mind to. I'm really not sure they could order lunch without partisan bickering though, so who knows?

Even if they do speak I wouldn't trust anything Darrel Issa oversaw at all, he was the local rep for where I used to live.

Still remember the "yea what ever" response I got for him after an extensive letter writing campaign against resigning the patriot act.

This was all a CIA op.
Good luck trying to get any info from them.

Yeah the state department is blocking it, because nothing bad can come out that will interfere with Clintons presidential run.

There is sooo much politics behind Benghazigate we will never know the truth, and make no mistake they will do everything in their powers to make it stay that way.
