Benghazi 2016! Playing Politics, The House GOP Vote for NEW Benghazi Investigation
House Republicans on Thursday approved a resolution to establish a new committee to investigate the attack in Benghazi, the Democrats say this is as an election-year distraction aimed to motivate the GOP ahead of November’s midterm contests.
The resolution, which passed the House by a 232-186 vote, establishes a 12-member select committee made up of 7 Republicans and 5 Democrats to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012 attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. Just seven Democrats voted for the measure.
