House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced today plans to establish a select committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack that killed four Americans.
House Speaker Boehner said in a statement:
“The administration’s withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people? “
House Republicans expressed resounding support for the Speaker’s decision, and took to Twitter to spread the word.
The American people deserve the truth, the families of the fallen deserve accountability & those responsible must go to jail #Benghazi

Select Committee on Benghazi is long overdue. Americans deserve the truth, not false narrative. Disgraceful no justice 20 months later. — Michele Bachmann (@MicheleBachmann) May 2, 2014
The committee will investigate and report on key facts from the Benghazi attacks that Americans have been misled about by the White House. House Republicans remain committed to finding answers to unanswered questions surrounding this terrorist attack.
