Former investigator files suit against House Benghazi chairman Trey Gowdy for defamation of character.

Courtesy of MSNBC:

A former investigator for the House Benghazi Committee filed a federal lawsuit against the committee Monday, opening a new chapter in legal skirmishes over the Benghazi attacks and subsequent investigations. 

Last month, Brad Podliska, an Air Force Reserve major, alleged the Benghazi committee terminated him based on his military obligations and his refusal to advance an agenda targeting Hillary Clinton. Now, Podliska is detailing those charges in court in a new filing that alleges Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy broke the law by defaming him in their public battle over Podliska’s firing. 

Gowdy previously said Podliska was terminated partly for mishandling classified information. 

The suit cites Gowdy’s claim from a press release and an interview with NBC News, and argues it was a damaging line of attack, since allegations of such a “serious crime” have “ended the careers of many professionals in national security-related industries.”

As many of you no doubt remember Podliska claimed he was fired because

“The Committee’s investigation had changed to focus on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the State Department,” the complaint states, “and deemphasize the other agencies that were involved in the Benghazi attacks,” which was Podliska’s initial assignment. He found staff leadership viewed him as “na├»ve” for taking an “objective, professional” approach to the investigation, the complaint states, when the predetermined goal was actually to “target” Sec. Clinton. Podliska argues that agenda contributed to his firing.

Well this is certainly not going to help the Benghazi committee shake its reputation as a tool for a partisan witch hunt against Hillary.

    So Bristol is going to name her baby girl Sailor... can't help but think that is a bit of a dig to Dakota.. cause he is a marine and all. I can't believe he hasn't acknowledged his child at all

      Marines are not sailors. Marines consider it an insult to be called a sailor (please note that all branches of the military do not like to be called by another branch's name). Further, please note that Sgt. Meyer is not likely to be the father, but if he is proven to be, he will take care of the child.

      Archie, you missed 3:57's point. She is naming her baby after another branch of the service to bug Dakota, or perhaps to imply that she was with a Navy guy.

    Let's hope the guy wins the lawsuit. I don't approve of frivolous lawsuits, but this one seems not to be frivolous.

    Oooooh! A little deeper, please,

  8. Gowdy needs a reality check upside the head.

    Now, who is going to sue them for all of the taxpayer money they wasted? I want it back.

  9. And here's some Da'Ish stuff hitting the fan:

    In July, a group of intelligence analysts at the U.S. military’s Central Command accused their bosses of distorting and selectively editing intelligence reports about the fight against ISIS in order to portray that campaign as more successful than it really was. As a result of those complaints, the Pentagon’s inspector general opened an investigation.

    Now, the allegations of misconduct have extended to a possible cover-up, with some analysts accusing the senior intelligence officials at Centcom, Maj. Gen. Steven Grove and his civilian deputy, Gregory Ryckman, of deleting emails and files from computer systems before the inspector general could examine them, three individuals familiar with the investigation told The Daily Beast.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
