The State Department whistleblower who revealed alleged cover-ups of misconduct under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has paid a price for her honesty, according to her attorney.
Former State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigator Aurelia Fedensisn told Foreign Policy through a legal representative that she has since had “law enforcement officers camp out in front of her house, harass her children, and attempt to [get her to] incriminate herself.”
On June 10, Breitbart News reported that Fedenisn pointed to an internal State Department Inspector General memo that showed “recent investigations were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off.” These investigations were launched based on allegations of sexual assault and of members of Sec. Clinton’s security detail engaging in prostitution while “on official trips in foreign countries.”
The memo also included allegations of an “underground drug ring” run near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, which was used to supply State Dept. contractors with drugs.
After Fedenisn blew the whistle on these issues, current investigators from the OIG went to her house and talked to her children, at least one of whom is a minor–Fedenisn was not home at the time. The investigators asked Fedenisn’s son and daughter to tell them where their mother currently works and asked for her cell phone number. They then sat parked in front of the house for hours.
