Brad Podliska, who was let go from the Benghazi Select Committee, is now suing them.

The suit alleges the “committee’s investigation changed significantly to focus on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the State Department, and deemphasize the other agencies that were involved in the Benghazi attacks and the aftermath of the attacks,” and that Podliska’s failure to make Clinton the focal point of his investigation was what led to his termination.

Podliska also said his status in the military played a role in his firing; he accuses the committee of singling him out after discovering the Air Force Reserve major had to go on assignment to Germany for a month.

The committee denies these claims. Gowdy said he fired Podliska for failing to secure classified information, insisting the former investigator was terminated for cause. But Podliska says he never mishandled classified information, and is asking the judge to bar Gowdy from speaking publicly about his firing.

The suit also paints the rest of committee in a less-than-flattering light, accusing committee members of drinking alcohol during work, and arranging for nonpartisan staff members to hide documents from Democratic members.
