Ex-Benghazi Investigator Alleges Rep. Gowdy Violated Federal Law

Source: NBCNews.com

The legal battle between the House Select Committee on Benghazi and its former investigator, Todd Podliska, escalated Monday afternoon, when Podliska's lawyers alleged that Chairman Trey Gowdy violated government confidentiality rules and federal law in responding to allegations made by Podliska.

"Both Representative Gowdy and the committee have clearly violated terms of the confidentiality agreement and the Congressional Accountability Act," said Peter Romer-Friedman, one of Podliska's attorneys, to MSNBC on Monday afternoon.

...

The lawyers allege that Gowdy and the committee improperly released confidential information regarding an employment dispute with Podliska, in an effort to discredit him.
...
Gowdy, the Benghazi committee chairman, told NBC News' Kristin Welker that Podliska was a "lousy employee" who mishandled classified information, and that his criticism of the committee's focus on Hillary Clinton only arose when he "was losing in mediation on his reservist claim."

14. I is not my place to forgive her. That is her god's job. She lived at ground zero and interacted

with the deaths and smells and dust and destruction and the grief of the families for weeks on end. She did what she thought right at the time. They were her constituents.

15. her god?

please

and no WAY could any thinking person have thought that giving that lying, thieving, warmongering chickenhawk piece of SHIT that kind of power was a good idea - she voted what she perceived to be her career over her conscience and THAT is NOT forgivable

EVERYONE who voted for IWR has blood on their hands, and the damage is STILL IN PROGRESS

4. My guess is that when Dowdy Doody outlives his usefulness, his puppetmasters cut the strings.

And we're almost there.

5. Rep Gowdy had better get himself a good lawyer.

And I don't mean himself. This is already spinning out of his control and he has said some stuff better kept to himself.

7. That's not a guarantee of immunity

If charges are filed and there is some substance to them, he faces them. Charges with substance to them may be unfamiliar territory to him, but he'll figure it out soon enough.

8. It's their

go-to play. Smear the person making the allegations, muddy up the situation to the point it confuses their low info voters. Turn it around on the whistle blower, make them the one that needs to defend themselves.
Pathetic and sick.

10. Waiting for the other shoe to drop........

You know if one staffer is singing it is unlikely to end there - some other staffer is going to say, "Wait an minute, Podliska is right." Wait for it........
