Lindsey Graham to Fox: ‘Blocking Every Senate Appointment’ Until Benghazi Survivors Can Testify
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy Monday morning that he intended to block every Senate appointment until the survivors of Benghazi were made available to a congressional committee for testimony.
“For god’s sakes, let the House have a select committee where you get three or four committees together to look at this situation as one unit, rather than stove piping,” Graham said.
“And where are the survivors? Fourteen months later, the people who survived the attack in Benghazi have not been made available to the U.S. Congress for oversight purposes. So I’m going to block every appointment in the United States Senate until the survivors are being made available to the Congress.”
“I’m tired of hearing from people on TV and reading about stuff in books,” Graham continued. “We need to get to the bottom of this. And to my House colleagues: Darrell Issa (R-CA) has done great job. To Speaker [John] Boehner (R-OH): please, for god’s sake, form a joint committee to get away from this blame game and find out exactly what happened…We’re just beginning on Benghazi. And to the families: we’re not going to let this go. Congress needs to up its game.”
