House Creates Benghazi Select Committee with Help from Seven Democrats
This is more bipartisan than ObamaCare. No republicans voted for ObamaCare.
Check it out:
Seven Democrats crossed party lines and joined House Republicans to establish a Select Committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on Thursday night.
These Democrats were Reps. Ron Barber (D-AZ), John Barrow (D-GA), Mike McIntyre (D-NC), Patrick Murphy (D-FL), Collin Peterson (D-MN), Nick Rahall (D-WV), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). The resolution passed 232-186.
Speaker Boehner has yet to announce which members will be part of the committee, but some lawmakers gave their thoughts as to what kind of representatives should be chosen.
“I think Trey Gowdy is a good choice for chairman. The Select Committee became essential. You needed one committee to bring it all together and to bring all the parties in the room at one time,” said Rep. Peter King (R-NY) to Breitbart News. “As long as the [members chosen] are professional. We have to be careful that we don’t overplay this. There’s real evidence here. We have to be responsible—starting with Trey. He’s very responsible,” he said, noting the importance of having members on the committee who “are solid” and “know how to ask questions and conduct themselves intelligently.”
