Details on Benghazi Select Committee to Be Released This Week
Townhall ^ | 5/5/2014 | Katie Pavlich

Late last week, House Speaker John Boehner announced he will be putting together a select committee to investigate the 9/11 attack in Benghazi after bombshell emails obtained by Judicial Watch showed the White House was directly involved in altering talking points. Further, Secretary of State John Kerry was issued a subpoena demanding more documentation and asked to give testimony on May 21 in front of the House Oversight Committee about the attack. We're still waiting on details about the select committee, but early indicators show Boehner will appoint former prosecutor and South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy to lead the investigation. Specifics about the extent and cost of the new select committee are expected to be released early this week. A vote on the select committee could come as early as today.

My guess:

Elijah Cummings, Committee Leader.
Sheila Jackson Lee, Committee Ad-hoc.
Maxine Waters, Special Council for the Prosecution.
Kieth Ellison, Committee Member.
Jim Moran, Committee Member.
Alan Grayson, Committee Member.

These will be Boehners appointments...
