Benghazi Investigator to File Lawsuit Against Benghazi Committee

A former investigator for the Select Committee on Benghazi says he will file a federal lawsuit against the committee because they fired him for investigating Benghazi.

Air Force Reserve Major Bradley F. Podliska says the committee wasn't interested in his investigation of the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya. He says the committee was more interested in Hillary Clinton's emails.

The former investigator, Bradley F. Podliska, a major in the Air Force Reserve who is on active duty in Germany, also claims that the committee’s majority staff retaliated against him for taking leave for several weeks to go on active duty. If true, the retaliation would violate the federal Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994, which Major Podliska plans to invoke in his complaint, according to a draft that was made available to The New York Times. [...]

Major Podliska, a lifelong Republican, holds a doctorate in political science from Texas A & M University and spent more than 15 years working at a federal defense agency, as an intelligence analyst for much of that time.

It's abundantly clear that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's sin was in telling the truth about the Benghazi Committee; a truth that cost him the speakership.

Judging by the way things have transpired in just the last few days, McCarthy's admission could soon be the least of the GOP's problems.
