State Department Told DCM Not to Talk With Chaffetz
By Harold Hutchison
Former Deputy Chief of Mission to Libya Greg Hicks reveals that he was told by a State Department lawyer not to talk with members of Congress, including Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).
Hicks went on to reveal under questioning from Congressman James Jordan (R-OH) that the lawyer was later barred from a classified briefing for which the lawyer was not cleared.
Later, Hicks reported that he received a phone call from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, something that Jordan explained was “not considered good news” for the recipient.
