Benghazi whistleblower Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, testified on Wednesday that he was told not to talk to Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) alone about the Benghazi attack, according to multiple reports.

Hicks also said calls received from top Hillary Clinton advisor Cheryl Mills were intimidating in nature.

Speaking to Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) later in the hearing, Hicks again reiterated that he was told directly not to be isolated with Chaffetz, who traveled to Libya to investigate the terrorist attack.

A State Department lawyer accompanied the delegation and tried to be in every single meeting he was involved in, Hicks revealed.

Chaffetz made similar allegations back in October. As previously reported by TheBlaze, the congressman said the Obama administration sent an attorney to “follow me in my every footstep” while he was investigating in Libya.
