We're only days away from major headlines the committee hearings -- -- -- what will we learn then that is a significant question today.
-- one attorneys attempt to get clearance for -- to testify eternal war of words all throughout the week with the State Department have a listen here we.
Now she's been in touch with us directly to go about their -- positions justice issues long.
-- -- -- making false statements that were unfounded that we were false statements as long -- We think that.
False -- -- -- -- and so we have somebody who was on national television.
Saying that we were blocking them from getting a security -- it's appropriate we're confident we think that it was.
And found it to go on TV and say I'm not getting -- security clearance I'm being blocked when.
She had picked up the phone and -- called.
So that from the State Department just yesterday -- had to respond Victoria tensing represented one of the State Department employees the person.
And question for that question -- there good morning and welcome back here.
To America no -- I know you're offended by the whole -- charge in I think the back and forth is significant in Washington.
It's my sense though what the American people want to know is is what your client is willing to say.
About what happened in Ben Ghazi that night.
And we're gonna have these hearings it mid week next week and how far is your client willing to go.
My -- we'll tell everything my client knows in that that hearing and I'm not to talk about it it ahead -- time.
And at all and so but I do want to address that what mr.
and talented because the American people also -- integrity.
From their government and they're not getting with -- State Department bill.
-- has been making up stuff about me all week and packing my credibility and here's what he does he makes up a statement.
And says I said it when I never said it in any -- because that's statements false she's lying he first did this on April 30.
He lied to the press -- misled the press -- by doing it he said.
We are not aware of any employee coming forward in any employee coming forward asking for -- security clearance.
When he well knew he had to letters at the state department of chairman Darrell ice requesting -- process.
A process for lawyers to be cleared.
And he then pretended like I was saying that an employee.
And now this is folks were not pretty good for the US Department of State he's not -- some back room in Washington DC -- How -- she asked person what what you're saying is that he declined in sorry he defined employee.
He did not define a member of congress and member of congress is there aren't -- to -- junior making.
We hit the gap and so -- was misleading the press -- by playing -- gave a straw man argument like oh well -- -- come forward when people come to.
That -- and that's the asking for two weeks -- had been at Norton not even a phone -- -- Don't just the people understand because this is important -- I didn't know where to go at the State Department and neither did the house committee by the way -- they would've done it.
Who would've thought it was a legal employment office where he can get your clearances.
You wouldn't even thought of that and we don't have the form the government has to send you the form.
And then this guy that mr.
been counted this again yesterday and made up another statement that I never said and set I was -- I would tell you this bill.
-- secretary Kerry has any integrity of our class he will demand that mr.
-- -- apologized to me.
If you communicated that with secretary care I'm doing it right now and what would you expect to hear from him.
I want an apology he made up statements saying I said them and then he said well those are not -- statements.
There you go up and you -- isn't it another interesting thing may first when they senate finally sent -- the process.
And said we do this is a matter of routine -- talked to them because I was still fox when they finally called and out.
-- I'm here to apply for a clearance for us to represent our clients for before a congressional hearing did you suggest you you're unusual if you're -- let me -- we're just so viewers are are clear that.
But that's on I'm really focused on what happens next -- okay and they're now you want to think about all the all the stories that have been out there in the past statements about and housing.
And perhaps many would argue are the stories that have not been reported since that time but what your client add to the wealth of information that's out there -- I'm not gonna get -- my client.
Because to do that before it's what we are -- -- all what will happen on Sunday I understand how we won't know the identity by next week.
Oh yes I I I my client is to be testifying.
Next week and my client and the other two.
Witnesses I believes -- -- witnesses I don't have the final word yet -- -- and I think but they know.
As a group.
What happened prior with all the security issues what happened tonight at 9/11.
And what happened in the aftermath including retaliation.
-- to specific questions how many whistle blowers do you believe.
-- -- -- Although there are more let me tell you these are great too is -- six is it tennis at thirty what is -- -- -- each candidate that -- There are three people have agreed to come forward and let me tell you what's happening we're getting phone calls at our office of people saying.
You know I wanted to come forward but I'm afraid and I'm gonna wait and see how this hearing goes before I decide what I'm -- -- Do so than -- the number continues to add up and so a whistle blower is one thing and I'm not here to make them any less significant for me survivor of the attack that night.
But in this case is a whistle blower the same as a survivor from inside that's it.
Well it doesn't matter what a possible -- is actually -- legal.
Kind of term meaning they get certain protections only because I'm trying to figure out whether or not they were in country -- -- -- -- September 11.
