Reid Says There Will Be No Senate Committee to Investigate Benghazi (Video)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will not create a special committee to investigate the 2012 attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, following Speaker John A. Boehner’s announcement on May 2 proposing a House committee.

“There’s no conspiracy here, it was a tragedy,” the Nevada Democrat said. “It’s my understanding they have 25,000 pages of documents, there’s been numerous hearings on this already, the State Department did an extensive review. … Now the latest smoking gun is a memo preparing people to go on the Sunday shows. Don’t you think everybody gets some preparation before they go on the Sunday shows? So the answer is no, we’re not going to do any select, special committee over here on Benghazi.”

Reid’s comments followed Boehner’s announcement this week that Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., a former federal prosecutor, will lead the special committee.

Late Tuesday, Roll Call reported the House committee would consist of seven Republicans and five Democrats.

    both naive zealots and weary statesmen champion their own means while condemning the others
    justify their own , compared to the other , minimize their own , and magnify the other ,
    forget their own , and remember the other

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Many thanks!

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

    I as well as my friends were actually following the good secrets and techniques located on the website and so suddenly got an awful suspicion I had not thanked the web blog owner for those tips. The ladies are already for that reason excited to read through all of them and have very much been taking pleasure in those things. Appreciation for truly being really accommodating and then for selecting some great subject areas most people are really desirous to know about. My personal honest regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.
