House Speaker John Boehner is seriously considering appointing a select committee to investigate the attacks on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, according to a senior GOP leadership aide. The move comes after the revelation of an email from a top Obama national security official, Ben Rhodes, instructing Susan Rice to focus on an anti-Muslim internet video to explain the attacks.
boehner, john The new emails this week were the straw that broke the camels back, says the aide. The Speaker was furious to learn that the admininstration withheld relevant documents from a congressional subpoena. Hes sick and tired of this evasion and obstruction from the administration, and wants a solution to finally force accountability, get to the truth, and provide justice.
Boehner, who has paid careful attention to the Benghazi developments since the attacks, has resisted calls to appoint a select committee, preferring to allow the various committees of jurisdiction to pursue investigations of their slices of the attacks on their own. Aides say Boehner continues to believe that the work of those committees has been valuable. The current committees investigating the attack have done good work, using their authority, including subpoena authority, to gather facts, interview hundreds of witnesses, and conduct dozens of hearings. But this weeks events demonstrate a new level of stonewalling and obfuscation by the administration that requires a new level of investigation.
So has Lois Lerner been arrested yet?
Boner is a waste of time and space.
what is taking so long?
He should do America a favor and “seriously consider” resigning.
Bone head is seriously considering.....
That means he has to consult with odumbo first.
Perhaps doctors implanted a spine.
If I do not see Obama frogmarched out of the Whitehouse, and shipped to the Hague to face international War Crimes, my life will be incomplete.
He sounds a little more miffed than usual. Let’s see what Boehner does with this.
Yeah, `ponder’ it for a few more weeks, you worthless, weepy sack-o’-shite.
Oh Great! Another committee! /s
Senior GOP leadership aide = first guy in the circle jerk.
I’m sure this is a trial balloon signaling Boehner needs his marching orders from campaign donors and the MSM.
C'mon, John! You know you won't do a damn thing! Oh, did I hurt your feelings...again?!!
Boehner is seriously considering how to form a select committee that won’t investigate the Syrian gun running and who all knew about it.
Boner must have gone on the wagon and his last two working brain cells connected up. If he goes thru with it I will send him ten bucks. Impeachment and mass criminal arrests would have to follow if he can get someone like Schippers to investigate. Hope I spelled Schippers name right, investigated Clinton.
If he does anything with it, Ubama will be going the way of Nixon, therefore he won’t do anything with it.
