But there are people in your state -- -- -- house coming -- They survived the terror attack and it wanted to tell their stories will you help them come forward -- just.
-- -- -- -- that I'm not familiar with this notion that anybody's been blocked from testifying.
So what I'll do is I will find out.
What exactly are you referring to they got -- the happened a long time ago.
We are unaware of any agency -- -- employee who would like to appear before congress to provide information related -- does it.
Did -- hear that right the two step just goes odd man.
But now several whistle blowers are coming forward.
Hoping to tell the truth about what happened that night -- four courageous Americans were murdered and whether the State Department.
Threatened to people to keep them quiet.
The house oversight committee will hold a hearing on that next week and Oklahoma congressman James Lankford was a member -- that very committee joins me now.
Good evening congressman.
Good evening news -- all right well I understand.
That you're beyond that panel and you just heard the president say didn't hear anything about that.
And then Carty says this just old news shall we all go home and call it a day congressman.
-- they're they're trying to say that State Department started investigating the State Department and didn't find any major problems and so they should all just go away obviously that is not going to be what we're gonna do we're negative press on has been five committees.
That had done their work to be able look at what is happened what happened in -- Ghazi.
I would not collected the report of all five of those and in the oversight and Government Reform Committee which -- -- on as you mentioned.
We'll have another series of hearings and starts on Wednesday we have a lot more of unanswered questions -- still to be resolved.
Well you know congressman -- that people want to hear from these survivors from bank Gaza and it's just it's almost against human nature.
For people not want not to want to talk about it and not to come forward.
And so now we've got these whistle blowers.
Who wore a petrified.
Is I understand that and are afraid to come forward but they're willing to do so.
What kind of protection can you give them.
Well they would they have legal counsel obviously the federal government already -- whistle blower protection statutes in place where they can't be kicked out of their job they can't have retribution because they've actually step forward and told the truth.
And so we're gonna step forward as a committee in and be able have council there.
To be able to help protect them in their future careers these are career State Department diplomats.
These are people that are very committed to what we do as a nation and around the world and they see that there are things that had never been told.
And that they feel like they've had pressured -- not -- it and there's also stories of heroism.
That no one has heard everyone just heard the bits and pieces of what's occurred but there -- lots of heroes that night and Americans are being kept from those stories.
In the families that were -- being kept from and we think those stories need to be told as well.
And you know when you think about the accountability review board doing an investigation.
Without talking to Hillary Clinton.
And and the idea that as I understand that they didn't talk to any of these whistle blowers is that your understanding as well congressman.
So some of the whistle blowers that will talk to us did share things with the account that a review board -- were not allowed to be able to see the final documents as they were -- to see whether what -- said was actually in the final document.
And in the same thing that you've heard over and over again we have as well that's Hillary Clinton in some.
-- -- in the State Department that were part of the decisions made an evening we're not even asked two be a part of that process.
That -- there's some major gaps they're obviously when the State Department reviews the State Department they're gonna have their own review wanted to.
We're gonna have to do more thorough review and be able taken everything.
-- you know what it's like it's like at the accused in a criminal case saying I'm gonna have my -- be the judge on this one wink and a nod and it really is very scary but.
Congressman -- we very much look forward to your hearings and I'm going to be there on Wednesday as well thanks so much for being -- us.
Good look forward to there's a lot more information coming out on Wednesday we look forward to it also all right.
