Bad news for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and good news for patriotic Americans and fans of the truth: the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans isn’t going away in 2015. The first public hearing of the Select Committee on Benghazi of the 114th Congress was held Tuesday morning, with the stated goal of collecting documents and gaining access to witnesses.
Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) kicked things off with a bang.
Gowdy issued a press release on behalf of the committee this morning, which concludes:
…we intend to access all of the information necessary to do the job the House instructed us to do. And we need to access that information now. Talking to only some of the witnesses will not work. Accessing only some of the documents will not work. If you want all of the truth, you need all of the information. That is what this committee is going to do. We will do it in a respectful way worthy of the memory of the four who sacrificed their lives for this country and worthy of the respect of our fellow citizens. But it is going to be done and the sooner the agencies make the documents and witnesses available, the sooner we can do what we were asked to do.
Let’s hope so. Committee members Reps. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) posted video of their questions to witnesses from the CIA and State Department.
When is the administration going to stop dragging its feet? January 2017, maybe?
