GOP Lawmaker: Boehner ‘complicit’ If Benghazi Panel Blocked

John Boehner 3 SC GOP lawmaker: Boehner complicit if Benghazi panel blocked

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) came under increased pressure Thursday to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack.

A day after three State Department whistle-blowers criticized the administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) suggested the Speaker risked becoming “complicit” in a cover-up if he doesn’t create a special panel.

“The revelations at yesterday’s hearing have raised serious questions about the administration’s efforts to respond to the Americans under fire at the annex in Benghazi,” he said in a letter to Boehner. “What remains to be seen is whether the House will be complicit in that failure, or if we will pursue the truth — wherever it may take us — to ensure that we continue to deserve the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country.”

Separately, two senators renewed their calls for a special committee following Wednesday’s six-hour House hearing.

“There’s an increasing argument for a select committee since the testimony yesterday obviously affected the jurisdiction of more than one committee,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a member of the Foreign Relations and Armed Services panels. “We need a full accounting, which can only come through a select committee in my view.”
