No Witch Hunt: Benghazi Whistleblower Voted For Obama

Big news for us so-called "witch hunters"… One of the key whistleblowers who testified before Congress last week voted for Obama twice (2008 and 2012 general elections) and also for Hillary Clinton in a 2008 primary. He is a registered Democrat in Virginia. The Daily Caller reports:

A key Benghazi whistle-blower who has allegedly been punished for speaking out against the administration is a registered Democrat who voted for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The lawyer of Gregory Hicks, the former U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya who testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, confirmed the information to The Daily Caller on Saturday.

According to the lawyer, Victoria Toensing, Hicks voted for Clinton during the 2008 primary, and for then-Illinois Sen. Obama in the 2008 general election. He again voted for Obama in 2012.

"The fact is he is a registered Democrat in Virginia. The fact is he voted for Hilary in the primary and Obama and then again for Obama," Toensing said.

Toensing added that she did not know he was a Democrat until the day before the hearing.

"I'm not interested in that," she said. "I'm interested in government not abusing its powers."

The fact that Hicks was an Obama and Clinton supporter is a key piece of information in regards to the credibility of his testimony. This would certainly be some ammunition to fly in the face of mainstream liberal media sources like The Washington Post who recently published an op-ed entitled "Republicans lead a witch hunt on Benghazi."  CNN also ran a piece entitled "Benghazi: Search for truth or witch hunt?" Most recently on Sunday's "Face the Nation," Illinois Senator Dick Durbin dropped this line again as a concluding point to a quick rant, "and yet the witch hunt continues."

If you actually want to take the time to "Google" the phrase "Benghazi witch hunt" you will find enough articles to make a quite extensive digest. If you were to print them all you might not need much firewood next winter. This seems to be the catch phrase from the left to discredit the right at the present time.

Let's look at a definition of "witch hunt" from

An investigation carried out ostensibly to uncover subversive activities but actually used to harass and undermine those with differing views.

I fail to see how this definition would apply when a key witness is actually someone who shares the political views of Clinton and Obama. I don't normally have very much good to say about those of the liberal ideology but I would commend Mr. Gregory Hicks for being one of the good guys. I will likely never agree with many of his political ideologies but I very much respect one thing that he and I have in common…

We want the truth!

I'd be just as concerned about this issue if a conservative were in the White House and so would Hicks. Do you understand how hard it was for him to come forward? The last thing I'd want to do is throw someone like Rand Paul, for instance, under the bus, but I would do it if it meant uncovering the truth.  You have to do it. It's about integrity.

Some things are much more important than where you stand politically. There are still a few people on both sides who think for themselves and as long as we have that, we also have hope for America.

    Benghazi Libya
    story of betrayal sacrifices and murders with sodomy torture of the United
    States of America ambassador to Libya. And three other loyal souls that died on that day September 11 they
    have done so many things to diminish the spirit of freedom in America! It was a nine hour terror
    attacks on the American soil because this was our diplomats and fellow
    Americans that were to receive all the honors protection communication
    throughout a several week process. As a matter of fact in July of 2012 one of
    the Islamics flag troops assaulted and blew a hole through the wall and it's a
    good size wall was like 40 feet wide the Islamics could've drove many trucks through it but
    they wanted to wait they had a plan. There were several requests by our
    American ambassador for added security he knew it was not a safe post! What did
    Obama’s State Department do they removed protection not once but twice in the
    month before 9/11/2012 Yet he was the
    representative of the United States of America Of course it is designed to
    protect Americans diplomats and other employees of the American government. You
    remember a time before Obama how
    important it was to protect not only are civilians or military or diplomats
    that used to be a very important how could Obama when I say Obama I mean all of
    them Clinton, Joint Chiefs of Staff they of all knuckled under to the regime
    that will see us burn

      "You remember a time before Obama how important it was to protect not only are civilians or military or diplomats that used to be a very important" Were you not "watching the world" when 9/11 happened? Smh....the "representative" of the U.S. sat idly by, over the course of over 8 months, with memos in hand, detailing what was to come of the towers on that fateful day, and you have the numbskullery to type the above statement???? Tell me Mr/Mrs. Watcher....what precisely did that administration do to keep civilians safe??????

      Barack Obama was raised in different country’s as a child his first memories were of Indonesiawhere as a muslim his fondest memory is reading his Koran at sundown on the beach. His own words yet no one listens! He saw the poverty and suffering of that country's people. He was taught that the sufferings he witnessed was the direct fault of Europe and of the United States of America. He was taught that the suffering of the world was to colonial greed.

      No one can argue that point colonial expansion was barbaric
      but it is over that was a time of history that is gone. Yet every fiber of his
      being is consumed by the hate he was taught. It doesn't matter where he was born doesn't matter if he's an American citizen what matters is he has done the damage that is needed to be done to destroy a nation.

  • For What Its Worth

    If you do not have integrity, then you have nothing....Mr. Hicks is a seeker of "Truth" and should be commended for that and his bravery. This country needs more people of integrity at this time, both Republican as well as Democrat. Our survival depends on it......

  • Marie Chantel

    why would he vote for obama after benghazi?

    • worldwatchers

      Had to have been a very early vote he was in Africa so he voted early he was a life long dem.

  • texan texan

    big deal. Hicks proved nothing. Disgruntled employee.

  • texan texan

    Hicks testimony is about what he senses or his opinion. Like they could have gotten military...refuted by multiple other sources. He had a sense they were out to get him. Other facts that were not facts but opinions. Pickering g and Mullins already published a state dept failure of leadership and competence report. Yea. Who changed the talking pints for a talk show...hicks doesn't know and not important. Shows bureaucratic CYA. Obama at Rosé Garden said it was day. Yes intelligence bad and response muddled. Obama not responsible for deaths. No intelligence saw it coming. More security...yea. 60 people died at embassies and consulates under George W Bush....60. Where was security. Beef up security at all diplomatic places. Costs money andmy guys hate State Dept.

      Keep spinning, but don't lose your balance...

      The Washington Post called Obummer a lier today he did not call it a terror attack dame a month later the clown was at the UN talking the video wake up dumb ass

    • Dawn Sanchez Trueblood

      That's nice, toss out insults when you can't find anything substantial to add. Where was your patriotic outrage at the loss of 3,000+ American CIVILIANS due to unabashed negligence that started this "war on terror" fiasco? None there huh? You don't think the families of those people running into those buildings when EVERYONE else was running away deserves your anger? You don't think those people are angry with our former moronic leader who has offered NO recourse for his inconsistencies as a leader? You don't feel that the Americans who did NOT sign up to defend their country with their lives deserve some closure????? You one sided f***s make me sick to my stomach with all your pretend anger over the loss of 4 American diplomats, especially since you're using those dead heroes as a pawn in your obvious xenophobic hate of one man! Take your "talking points" rhetoric back to your backwoods town hall black-man haters club, the stench of your fear of anything other than yourselves is stinking to high Heaven and the BS that comes out of your mouths is making YOUR dumb ass jealous!

    • worldwatchers

      Barack Hussien Obama sent those men to their deaths he is guilty of High Treason against the people of the United States of America He wont be happy until he sees the Cities of America Burn

  • Incredulous1

    AFter what BHO and "the witch" did to him in Sept., why would he vote for BHO 2 months later? Demo-dummy?

  • A. Levy

    You can bet your life the Obamunists are combing through this guy's life looking for the slightest thing to hang on him. In the end, i believe he is the guy who will hopefully put a rope around Hitlary's neck. At that point, look for skinny, feminine hands to come from the Oval Office and throw her under the nearest bus. Pronto!

    • Lynn

      Of course they will try to destroy this man. I just hope more of them will come forward and testify. I heard there could be up to 50 others - imagine if most of them would testify. Then what happens? If not, this could get swept under the carpet pretty quickly. I hope those soldiers have a conscience and do the right thing.

    So this is like getting one inmate to testify against another . . . only to the benefit of the citizens for once.
