The Obama administration is desperately trying to keep the lid on the terrorist attack on last year’s Benghazi terrorist attack. According to Rep. Frank Wolf (R., Va.) a CIA employee who refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement barring him from discussing the Benghazi terrorist attack in has been suspended as a result and forced to hire legal counsel.
According to the Washington Free Beacon Wolf revealed a that his office was anonymously informed about the CIA employee, who is facing an internal backlash after refusing to sign a legal document barring him from publicly or privately discussing events surrounding last years terrorist attack in Libya.
The revelation comes about a month after several media outlets reported that CIA employees with knowledge of the terror attack had been forced to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDA) and submit to regular polygraph tests.
“The reports on the NDA are accurate. We’re getting people who call,” Wolf said Monday during an event marking the launch of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, a panel of former military and intelligence officials who are investigating unanswered questions surrounding the Benghazi incident.
Wolf’s office first received the anonymous call earlier in the summer, soon after CNN and Fox News reported on the NDAs and polygraph tests.
The caller told Wolf’s staff that an unnamed CIA employee has been suspended after refusing to sign a Benghazi-related NDA.
“My office received a call from a man saying that he knew a CIA employee who has retained legal counsel because he has refused to sign an additional NDA regarding the Sept. 11, 2012, events in Benghazi,” Wolf said in Sept. 9 remarks at a panel discussion hosted by Judicial Watch.
“I called the law firm and spoke with CIA employee’s attorney who confirmed that her client is having an issue with the agency and the firm is trying to address it,” Wolf said. “Based on my past experiences with the CIA, which is headquartered in my congressional district, I am not at all confident that these efforts will be successful.”
The CIA would not directly address Wolf’s charges, they would only forwarded Free Beacon a letter sent to Congress from CIA Director John Brennan in which he denies charges that the agency has forced employees to sign NDAs and submit to polygraph tests. They reiterated its denial in a Tuesday call to a Free Beacon reporter, calling Wolf’s allegations “categorically false.”
If this claim is accurate, it will blow the Benghazi scandal out into the open and cause this president to “answer some real questions.”
