BENGHAZI COMMITTEE: SPURNED STAFFER LYING ABOUT WHY HE WAS FIRED, TRYING TO ‘BLACKMAIL’ US

gowdy

BigGovernment: The House Benghazi Committee is firing back at the spurned former staffer who says he was fired from the investigative body because he refused to target Hillary Clinton.

Actually, the committee says the staffer was fired in part because he would have undermined the committee’s factual investigation with a bizarre project attacking Clinton, and for other conduct violations. And now the committee is accusing the staffer of trying to blackmail them for money with falsehoods emanating from his “wild imagination.”

Major Bradley Podliska conducted an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, to be aired Sunday morning, in which he claimed that he was fired from his investigative role on the Republican-majority side of the Benghazi committee because he had too many scruples to participate in a “partisan investigation” into Clinton’s work at the State Department.

Podliska said that a superior told him he was fired for using work email for social purposes, failing to secure classified information, and giving an intern an “unauthorized assignment” to do. Podliska denied to CNN that he handled classified information on a system that was not classified, and also denied the “unauthorized assignment” bit. But the committee says otherwise.

Podliska has been developing imaginative stories for his dismissal ever since he was fired, including in confidential mediation sessions. more here

  1. That’s funny. I just heard a report on NPR (I know, I know) that told all about the charges by the former staffer (“a self described conservative republican”) but said nothing about the committee’s response to the charges. Huh!

  2. WELL WELL, guess it would prove by following the $$ trail that the Clinton Foundation made substantial endowments to this creep….who would have thought? Just shows the Clintoons will beg, borrow, steal, kill to get what they want…

  3. Kinda ironical.

    That’s why Hillary Rodham was fired from the Rodino Committee.

    Too sleazy for lawyers.
    How does one be lower than whale dreck?
