Ex Staffer From Benghazi Committee Spills The Beans

Courtesy of CNN:

A former investigator with the House Select Committee on Benghazi is accusing the Republican-led panel of carrying out a politically motivated investigation targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton instead of the thorough and objective fact-finding mission it was set up to pursue.

Maj. Bradley Podliska, an intelligence officer in the Air Force Reserve who describes himself as a conservative Republican, told CNN that the committee trained its sights almost exclusively on Clinton after the revelation last March that she used a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. That new focus flipped a broad-based probe of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, into what Podliska described as “a partisan investigation.”

Podliska’s planned lawsuit will ask the court to order the committee to reinstate him as an investigator on the committee and to reimburse him for wages and benefits lost as a result of his firing. His annual salary on the committee was $130,000, according to public records.

Podliska also leveled accusations about the committee’s work environment, telling CNN that “there was very little work actually being done.”

He said half the staff was “surfing the Web all day long” and said “there was plenty of drinking during the work day.”

And while he was reprimanded for sharing an invitation to an event with his colleagues via work email, he said a group of staffers had set up a “gun buying club” for “chrome-plated, monogrammed Tiffany-style Glock nine millimeters” and that staffers would spend “hours at a time” designing the guns.

The committee spokesperson declined to address these allegations.

“It was a classic case — and this is me, as a conservative — of taxpayer waste, fraud and abuse,” he said. “It should not have occurred.”

The bolding mine. I wonder what the reaction to this will be? The GOP will try to discredit him and no doubt do a smear job on him.

    I’m no Gowdy’s email list, so should get something soon about all this. He will whine and blame Hillary for all his troubles. As a solicitor, he was pretty good, but as a congress critter, he sucks.

    I think there will be no reaction from the GOP. They will just move to Plan B, maybe do more about the email ‘scandal’. What used to shock us doesn’t anymore- there is a shocker several times a day. And the media is only out for quick headlines and soundbites then off to the next big news item. How do you hold their feet to the fire when it’s yesterday’s news and no one cares? I agree with Podliska, take it to the courts.

    The conservative voters? They don’t care- politics has become war; so they lost this battle, on to the next.
