The whistleblower who came forth with claims that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton helped cover up misconduct that occurred in the department during her tenure now says law enforcement agents are harassing her.
The chairman of a key House committee on Thursday demanded that the State Department's office of inspector general explain passages in internal documents that refer to pressure from department higher-ups to quash investigations into suspected criminal activity — including the solicitation of prostitutes, illegal drug activity and sexual assault — by U.S. diplomatic personnel overseas.
The State Department has been tainted by an internal memo that revealed security personnel and even diplomats may have committed inappropriate, illegal behavior during overseas trips.
Ms. Fedenisn said investigators from the OIG have gone to her home and interviewed her children — one of whom is a minor — without her presence.
Several of the IG cases were dropped on order of superior officers, Ms. Fedenisn said in the CBS report.
