Benghazi Committee Fired Investigator For Refusing to Target Clinton
Overview of this ControversyDate Originated:
November of 2015Categories: Select Committee on BenghaziA former investigator on the House Benghazi Committee filed a federal lawsuit against the committee and Representative Trey Gowdy for discrimination and defamation. Brad Podliska, an Air Force Reserve major, accused the committee and Mr. Gowdy of firing him for refusing to advance an agenda targeting Hillary Clinton. He also claims that Rep. Gowdy illegally defamed him in public when he went on "Meet the Press" and accused him of mishandling classified information, which later turned out to be false.
Podliska is not seeking monetary compensation, but instead asks for the court to require a statement saying that Gowdy’s allegation was false and to bar Gowdy from repeating it again.Source: http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/ex-benghazi-investigator-sues-trey-gowdy-discrimination-and-de...
