Who Is Bradley Podliska?

Bradley Podliska is a major in the Air Force Reserve and was a former investigator for the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Major Podliska is a lifelong Republican and holds a doctorate in political science from Texas A & M University. Podliska has spent over 15 years working at a federal defense agency as an intelligence analyst. He said he plans to vote for the Republican presidential nominee and worked as an intern at the Media Research Center, the conservative media activist group.

Major Podliska is now accusing the Committee operated by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) of focusing solely on Hillary Clinton as part of a “partisan investigation” designed to hurt her presidential campaign. Podliska claims that due to his complaints about this focus and a deployment to Germany, he was fired by the committee. He plans to sue over his dismissal.

Podliska also said, “Hillary Clinton has a lot of explaining to do. We, however, did not need to shift resources to hyper focus on Hillary Clinton. We didn’t need to de-emphasize and in some cases drop the investigation on different agencies, different organizations and different individuals. There’s wrongdoing here and I think it needs to stop.”
