Democrat leaders are now joining ranks with the White House and echoing the assertion that Benghazi is a “phony scandal,” contrary to what a majority of Americans believe.
The Republican leadership, on the other hand, has joined our call for the establishment of a joint Select Committee. This is new momentum in our campaign to expose the truth, call for accountability, and demand justice.
Seventeen Democrat members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have issued a terse letter to Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, declaring that his “partisan investigation” into the Benghazi attacks is “characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations.”
The Democrats, who clearly see the danger to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political future, are demanding that “it is time to end these seemingly endless and unsubstantiated political attacks…”
Not coincidentally, they are calling for an end to the investigation as more and more of the lies, deception, and subterfuge by the Obama administration and Clinton’s State Department are finally coming to light.
The ill-advised letter was sent one week prior to the testimony former CIA Acting Director Michael J. Morell gave to the House Intelligence Committee on his role in espousing lies to the American people following the 9/11/12 attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, Libya.
Republican leaders are now calling for a consolidated investigation by a joint Select Committee.
According to a Talking Points Memo, three Senators are once again “calling for the appointment of a Joint Select Committee to investigate the terrorist attacks on our compounds in Benghazi.”
Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) said this in a joint statement…
“It is imperative that we learn everything that happened before, during and after the attacks. A joint Select Committee should be established” for a full and unified congressional investigation.
Right now there are no less than six congressional committees conducting independent investigations! A Select Committee will unify their efforts and have the necessary subpoena power to call in witnesses who have been sequestered by the Obama administration.
Liberty Counsel Action has been among the most vocal organizations petitioning congressional leadership to establish a bipartisan Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks – and to expose the subsequent cover-up.
If you believe there is more to the Benghazi attack than is being revealed, join us in insisting there be a credible investigation into the Benghazi cover-up by clicking below and adding your name to our petition that already includes over 115,000 signers.
I believe that the probability of exposing the truth of the immense failure by the Obama administration and the mishandling of security requests by Mrs. Clinton are the reasons why the Democrats are declaring, “Move on. There’s nothing to see here!”
There remain far too many questions and very few answers about the Benghazi debacle. That is why Liberty Counsel Action is demanding a complete and thorough congressional investigation by a Select Committee!
God bless you for joining us in demanding truth and accountability.
