GOP Defies Boehner On Special Benghazi Panel

John Boehner SC GOP defies Boehner on special Benghazi panel

House Republican members are defying Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and five committee chairmen by endorsing a measure that would set up a special panel to investigate the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

A growing number of members on the committees with jurisdiction over the Benghazi matter — Intelligence, Judiciary, Oversight and Government Reform, Armed Services and Foreign Affairs — have signed onto Rep. Frank Wolf’s (R-Va.) resolution.

Boehner and the chairmen of those committees do not support the legislation. Instead, they have worked together to investigate the Obama administration’s handling of the Sept. 11, 2012 assault.

Despite that resistance, Wolf has garnered a sizable majority of the GOP Conference as co-sponsors since introducing the measure in January. It has 146 GOP co-sponsors, with more than 80 Republicans backing it over the last month.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has also embraced a special committee and attempted to pry the GOP-led House to schedule a vote. That would put pressure, McCain has pointed out, on the Senate to act.

    Why shouldn't there be an investigation. What the heck is Boehner's problem? Maybe it's time for this RINO to step down and take BO with him

    Ok Boner, I've given you every benefit of a doubt that you were just playing it safe. It's now time to either schit or get off the pot.
    With the criminal charges against Rosen today we see the First Amendment under attack.
    How long you going to sit back and ignore the blatant attack on our Constitution?
    Time to man up.

      Seeks I always said Boner was a Obutthole man and all it took was for Sambo to take him golfing.i told you he was in cahoots with sambo on passing some sneaky gun legislation.

      • Seeks_the_truth says:

        I always knew he was, I just chose to give the benefit of the doubt.
        I'm not one to jump to conclusions. He always had valid reasons for going the way he did.
        Now the time has come to either get on board or step aside.

  3. Great news!!!! Boehner is not about to do anything!! He is inept as Speaker and should be voted out by his Republican peers.

  4. Edwardkoziol says:

    Time for the republicans to get a set and take Boner out as speaker even if he does become a democrat like that Specter did but now he is a good democrap and can't F–k up America.

  5. Boehner needs to get his butt into the game or resign and let somebody else with some guts be Speaker.

    With any kind of luck Ohio will send Boehner off to the the bone yard in this upcoming election.
    I cannot understand how anyone could vote for such a dufus to be in Congress, and he has been there for years… Sometimes I wonder how we have survived this long with the education of our citizens…..
