Good luck with that. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi faces pressure from all sides in regard to the newly-launched select committee to investigate Benghazi. Participating would legitimize the results, while boycotting it might open up Democrats to attacks on their concern for diplomatic personnel abroad, four of whom were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012, and leave administration officials no way to set the narrative through the friendly questioning of Democrats on the panel during public hearings. Pelosi hedged in the direction of participation by demanding an equal number of seats on the committee:

I can tell you this. It is not going to be evenly constituted and when she was Speaker Pelosi, she certainly showed no interests in having an equal number of Republicans and Democrats.
Were in the majority. That may or may not be the case after November but were in the majority right now and were in the majority for a reason. And I just find it interesting that peoples ability to do math changes when they go from being the Speaker to the Minority Leader.
She’s looking for a reason to walk out.
Walking out is not necessarily a political winning strategy. Me thinks the demoRats are caught in a dilemma.
It hasn't changed. She never could do math.
WE WON Bitch !!!
Don’t let the door slam on your corrupt A$$ nutsy.
No but it gives the media a reason to ignore it.
Life is a b!tch witch, suck it up.
Yeah, the Russians boycotted the UN in the early 50s about something or other, and next thing you know, the US gets the UN to vote to save Korea. We went into Korea as the UN, not as the US. They never did it again.
She can’t change expression on her face either. Too much Botox has it’s consequences.
Good, let her walk out. Let them stage a total walkout and parade down the Capitol steps. Let them march off to Maryland and hide in Steny Hoyer’s basement. Let them rot there.
People in Hell demand Ice water Nancy. Now go make Trey a sammich.
Better idea. Put no dems on the committee to begin with and tell the Dems and media to pound salt.
Then have a live internet feed so people can watch it ALL.
The Democrats are scared. That initial ploy that “we will not participate” fell flat. Still it will be very difficult to defend a obvious deception. Those emails were devastating. Period.
Pelosi’s PC half/half ratio wrongly ignores that voters have made Republicans the House majority party. Committee should reflect current ratio of House Republicans to Democrats favoring Republicans imo.
If this were a case of any other set of Dems, I’d agree. But these idiots need to be excluded, minimized and shut out. Just as Harry does to Pubs in the senate.
And when called on it, the GOP should say exactly that. Then bull ahead doing the job they were elected to do.
EVERYONE knows damn well that if things were reversed politically, democrats would NOT ALLOW a SINGLE republican on their committee!
POUND SAND PELOSI!!!!
Gowdy should expect the dems to walk out...He should set up an internet access for the world to connect to and IGNORE THE SO CALLED MAIN STREAM MEDIA COMPLETELY... NO COMMENT SECTION.. USE WATCH ONLY UNFILTERED KINDA LIKE CSPAN , JUST CALL IT CONSERVSPAN AND CUT THE OBAMASUCKUPS COMPLETELY...
