Shaffer scheduled to testify before Congress

It's not up on the website yet, but multiple sources confirm that Shaffer will be appearing before Chris Shay's Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations. The hearing is scheduled for February 14th. The subject of the hearing is national security whistleblowers. I believe this is the hearing originally scheduled for December 6th. Able Danger itself is not the subject of the hearing, but rather the retaliation against Shaffer and others for speaking out, on issues that are vital to our national security. After all the things DIA has said about him since he was gagged, he will finally get a chance to defend his good name. Now, will DIA try to stop Shaffer from testifying about their own retaliation against him?

If they try, I'm betting Schoomaker might be ready to back Shaffer up.
