The Benghazi hearing witnesses are accusing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of implementing a coverup after the Benghazi terrorist attacks.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Benghazi report is a 43 page document that accuses White House and senior State Department officials of altering “accurate talking points drafted by the intelligence community in order to protect the State Department.”
The Benghazi witness whistleblower names have been released and they’re set to testify before Congress this coming Wednesday. Their allegations include the idea that the Accountability Review board (ARB) Benghazi report was a cover up set up by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to defend the Obama administration.
The House Oversight Committee Benghazi hearing streaming live today will feature Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks.
The website for the Benghazi hearing says these witnesses “are expected to say top officials at the Department of State took actions to minimize political damage to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In the days after the attack, officials claimed the attack had resulted from a spontaneous demonstration against an anti-Muslim film. That story was quickly refuted, although the filmmaker was arrested on a probation violation and remains in prison.”
Other reports are saying that not only is Hillary Clinton involved in the Benghazi coverup. Only President Obama could have prevented special forces on the ground from helping according to an unnamed source:
“I have a hard time thinking it was Hillary alone. Hillary may have tried to circumvent the counterterrorism board and deal with this. I think in order for her to tell General Ham, ‘No, you’re not going to get involved,’ she would have had to talk to the president. The president would have had to say, ‘No, take your commands from Hillary.’ He would have had said something, because Ham does not work for the Department of State; he works directly for the president.”
