Republican lawmakers are "chicken" about getting to the bottom of the Benghazi attack and need to toughen up to get answers, Washington, D.C. attorney Victoria Toensing says.

"Let's get the House Republican leadership to start pressuring," Toensing told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"They need to put this out there that they're going to fight and they're going to be serious about it ... The White House knows that they're being chicken about it and they're just playing on it.

Story continues below.



"They know how to play this game and we don't know how to be tough."

Toensing — whose law firm diGenova & Toensing specializes in white-collar criminal defense, regulatory inquiries, and legislative advocacy — represents Benghazi "whistleblower" Gregory Hicks.

Hicks says he was demoted by the State Department for speaking out about the deadly September 2012 attack in Libya that claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Numerous questions have arisen about whether the U.S. should have been able to prevent the attack, and whether a cover up of the facts by the administration officials occurred in its aftermath.

An investigation by a House of Representatives has been ongoing

"The House leadership should get off their duffs and be tough about this and they're not," Toensing said.

"These Republicans … sound like whiners when they come out and say, ‘Well we've written three letters and no one will say anything.’ Subpoena them … They don't know how to play hardball."
