I missed this revelation in last week’s Benghazi hearings:
Gregory Hicks was the Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) of the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli during the September 11, 2012 assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. On Wednesday, he told the House Government Oversight Committee that the State Department went out of its way to keep Hicks from communicating with Congressman Jason Chaffetz and Oversight Committee staff without a State Department lawyer. . .
“I was instructed not to allow the RSO, the acting Deputy Chief of Mission, and myself to be interviewed by Congressman Chaffetz,” Hicks told Rep. Jim Jordan (R–OH).
It should be needless to say, this was unusual:
“Have you ever had anyone tell you, ‘Don’t talk with the people from Congress coming to find out what’s at play?'”
“Never,” Hicks responded. He said that it was the first time such an incident ever occurred.
