Mark I. Thompson will make the allegation that Hillary Clinton “tried to cut the department’s own counter-terrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making” as they responded to the Benghazi attacks.
Thompson is a former Marine and the current deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s counter terrorism bureau. He will appear before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday to testify about the Benghazi attacks.
Fox News is also reporting that ANOTHER official from counteroffensive made the same allegation “about Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy to trusted national security colleagues back in October.”
“You should have seen what (Clinton) tried to do to us that night,” the second official in State’s counter-terrorism bureau told colleagues back in October. Those comments would appear to be corroborated by Thompson’s forthcoming testimony.
Joe diGenova, who represents Mr. Thompson has alleged “his client has been subjected to threats and intimidation by as-yet-unnamed superiors at State, in advance of his cooperation with Congress.” Thompson’s account was “suppressed” by the ARB (Accountability Review Board).
The State Department responded these allegations are “100 percent” false.
