We are just learning about the household holding a hearing on the -- Ghazi terror attacks one week from today.
That attack on September 11 of last year killed four Americans including our ambassador.
All this coming just days after Fox News reports on government employees who say they've been threatened with their jobs.
To keep them from revealing information about the attack to members of congress.
Fox's Ed Henry asked the president specifically about that yesterday.
-- I'm not familiar with this notion that anybody's been blocked from testifying.
So what all do is I will find out.
What exactly are you referring to.
There was a follow up to that that went nowhere as well my next guest is part of the committee holding that hearing next for you talk congressman Jason -- as a Republican and good morning to you -- see you in studio here.
What did you think about how the president reacted to.
Well he's gonna get to the bottom of a better hurry up and do -- because we -- whistle blowers are coming to us.
Chairman -- -- has sent two letters over to the State Department saying laid this out force we have people.
Who have classified positions they have classified information but they want some protection from some attorneys that means that the attorney also needs the same degree of security clearance.
And the State Department saying I'll just have the person come talk to us that's what they wanna do -- come to the United States congress or some protection.
We're trying to help them find an attorney.
They need to lay this out it's not a classified document about how to get an attorney but they won't even give us that basically tell me about the hearing next week -- the specifics luck it's been a long time coming and I'm very grateful the chairman -- in this speaker another -- allowing us to finally have this hearing I think we're gonna have some good witnesses we haven't laid out -- that is.
But next Wednesday 1130.
Is the first -- what I think we'll actually be a few more hearings it will hear from people who've got personal firsthand knowledge.
A what actually did happen today is present in the whistle blowers.
Testified I I I think you'll see -- again I can't release any names today yet -- but next Wednesday I think those that are concerned about this issue myself included tray guiding others -- finally gonna get some -- if that is the case then these whistle blowers who revealed her identity and they will go public for the first time.
We want to do you have -- on authority that they're willing to do that we have a number of people who have stepped forward.
-- just want truth to prevail.
And they -- they -- stymied along the way we want to make sure they've got all the protections in place we can do that they need to.
Also I'm an attorney laden get -- go through that process -- we're just trying to get to the -- -- -- -- -- -- on this are you saying it's a possibility they will appear.
I -- that they will look here I think they will be a -- Some of them some of them that again there's a host of their different processes they're different levels of which they -- -- spoken with us.
But yeah I think -- be -- -- State Department said this just yesterday the State Department would never tolerate tolerate or sanction.
Retaliation against whistle blowers on any issue including this one that's an obligation -- very.
Series and -- civic committee the oversight committee then non classified process by which they will get an attorney and get that whistle blower protection.
They haven't been able to do that in weeks it's it should be a simple to our process send it over to us today by noon there will be a speaker Boehner is on our show last week you said I'm not willing to go for a select committee.
I know others feel otherwise.
Are you disappointed the speaker's position look -- let the committees do their job and we can get to the bottom of this I think they oversight and Government Reform Committee we were the first ones all the hearing.
We've been tenacious and on that we don't necessarily need to select committee if he'd just a lot of committees to do their job and we will be doing that next Wednesday one week from today 11:30 AM eastern time Jason chances and I don't sir thank -- time.
