"Fox-Promoted Claim That Benghazi Witness Was Threatened Falls Apart
After Fox News pushed a claim that a Benghazi witness had been "subjected to threats and intimidation" by State Department employees, the witness' lawyer admitted on the network that his client never said he had been threatened by anyone."
You can read more at the link if you'd like. Let me add that the witness' "lawyer" is a guy named Joseph DiGenova who, along with his wife Victoria Toensing, has a long history as a Republican liar, dating to the couple's deep involvement in the Valerie Plame and Monica Lewinski smears against Bill Clinton, and numerous other nonexistent scandals.
Joseph DiGenova. I mean really, would you trust this guy
to be your lawyer? He looks like a guy who would play a shyster lawyer
on some soap opera, when he could free up some time from playing
a used car salesman.
I guarantee you though, that this revelation will not slow Republican claims about this supposed intimidation one bit. The right wing noise machine will go on repeating this claim from now until doomsday, just like the birth certificate, Obama's supposed Marxism, and all their other lies.
A Second Thought: Boy wouldn't you like to know who was the first right winger to tell this lie- the one who just made it up without a shred of guilt, as opposed to the hundreds who are now repeating it knowing perfectly that there is not one shred of evidence to support it. The original sources of these smears are almost always lost in the Republican noise machine, because none of them know where they come from, and none of them give a damn whether they are true or false, as long as they think their lying will get them what they want, which in the case of the real Republican leaders consists in a country so dysfunctional that rich people can steal whatever they want.
