Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an interview with Fox News, alleged that the injured survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been “told to be quiet” and feel they can’t come forward to tell their stories — escalating his push for more information about survivors who have never been publicly identified.

The White House is denying any attempt to exert pressure on them.

“I’m sure that the White House is not preventing anyone from speaking,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, when asked about the survivors.

But Graham told Fox News, “the bottom line is they feel that they can’t come forth, they’ve been told to be quiet.”
