Rep Jordan just blew it open. The Benghazi witnesses WERE intimidated and ordered not to cooperate with congressional investigators. They also sent a lawyer to escort them during all of their meetings to make sure.
1:35 p.m. EDT: Rep. Jim Jordan leads a line of questioning to Hicks in which he elicits testimony that the State Department tried to dissuade him from speaking to members of the Oversight Committee, and attempted to place a lawyer in between him and committee members, including attending classified meetings. Hicks confirms that this had never happened before in his career, and that a lawyer who assisted Secretary Clinton directly was upset about the investigation.
