Posted on 04/22/2013 2:50:58 PM PDT by Nachum
House Speaker John Boehner Monday defended the way he has handled the investigation into last year's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, insisting a select committee is not needed to probe the incident.
The Ohio Republican told the media that he has resisted lawmakers calls for a select committee because he doesn't think one is necessary.
The five committees that have jurisdiction over this matter are working closely together, said Boehner. They're getting the job done.
As of Monday, The Hill reports, 117 of Boehner's fellow lawmakers have signed onto a resolution from Republican Rep. Frank Wolf of Virginia, seeking a select committee. However, Boehner, defending his handling into the Benghazi incident, said it would be a waste of time and money, a claim backed by leaders of the Oversight, Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, Intelligence, and Judiciary committees.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
CBS: “Boehner found to be on DNC payroll.....details at 11”.
Who has the authority to appoint a select committee on Boner?
The Dems must really have the goods on Boehner. He’s gone way beyond the normal Republican capitulation and caving. He’s actually carrying water for them now.
Or, maybe a deselect committee on Boner?
He’s a disgrace, even to the Republican Party which is saying alot. LOL
All we got was The Dope!
Look just like the ex CIA director they have every email, Facebook post and drunken voicemail this guy has every done. The file looks like the NY phone book . He will do what they tell him to do. He is a small man.
No Balls Boehner strikes again.
He will do what they tell him to do. He is a small man.
Just like John Roberts.
He goes against We, the People!
Not to mention his own party & THE 4 MASSACRED AMERICANS.
Boehner - defeat is within reach. GOP is going extinct.
We all know The Weeper of the House is a worm and pretty much useless. That the House GOP re-elected him to the position speaks volumes about the House GOP.
A pox on all of them!
Well, see, if it was a Republican White House, the Democrats would certainly let the Benghazi misunderstanding slide until it faded down the memory hole, wouldn’t they?
This pathetic assclown Boehner has GOT to go.
I wonder what What’s Up had for the GOP excuse on this matter....lets ask.
Oh What’s up? Whats the talking point today?
GOP is going extinct.
Let’s hope so, and soon. We need a real opposition party that the Dems fear, and that will NEVER be the Republican Party.
So, approximately 25% of the US Representatives have signed their names to a resolution seeking a select committee, and the drunkard, Boehner, tells them to eff off because he knows best.
