Who bombed us in Benghazi? We still don’t know. But more than seven months after the attack in Libya that killed four Americans, some from within the government might speak.
FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:
At least four career State Department and CIA employees who may talk to Congress have hired lawyers.
One of those lawyers, Victoria Toensing, says her client has been threatened by people within the administration.
(Toensing) “They’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over.”
As for a Congressional probe: State Department Spokesman Patrick Ventrell says, that’s up to Congress.
(Ventrell) “We’ve had a very thorough, independent investigation, which we completed and were transparent and shared.”
Ventrell also says it’s clear that others are using Benghazi for political ends.

If witnesses to the Benghazi, Libya attack are being threatened, President Obama says he knows nothing about it. The President faced questions over the issue during a press conference on Tuesday.
FOX News Radio’s Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House:
There have been allegations U.S. officials with knowledge of the Benghazi attacks have been intimidated by administration officials into not divulging what they know. Asked about that at his news conference, President Obama said not that he knows.
(President Obama) “I am not familiar with this notion that anybody’s been blocked from testifying. So what I’ll do is I will find out.”
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham doesn’t think the President really wants us to find out.
(Senator Graham) “They’ve been more trying to cover-up what happened than they have trying to get to the bottom of it.”
Graham says the administration’s mishandling of the Benghazi situation was a systemic failure.
