Benghazi “whistleblower” Gregory Hicks is a registered Democrat who voted for both President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his attorney said on Saturday.

“He voted for Hillary in the primary and Obama twice,” Victoria Toensing, a former federal prosecutor, told Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg in an interview on WMAL radio in Washington.

Toensing also disclosed Hicks’ political affiliation to NBC in an interview, but “NBC spiked the story where I told it before the hearings.”

Hicks, a foreign-service officer and ex-deputy chief in Libya, was the No. 2 to Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was among the four Americans who died in the attacks at the post in Benghazi last Sept. 11.

He gave a detailed account of the assault on Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The panel is chaired by GOP Rep. Darrell Issa of California.

Hicks was reassigned to a desk job at the State Department.

In her interview with Malzberg, Toensing attacked the mainstream media for paying more attention to her and not Hicks.

“It’s just amazing what the press is still trying to do to cover this up,” she told Malzberg. “So they try to make this partisan because of the lawyer.

“Well, I’m not the messenger. He’s the messenger! The modus operandi is to find anything they can do to just attack.”
