New Emails Re-Focus Lawmakers On Getting Benghazi Answers

New Emails Re-Focus Lawmakers On Getting Benghazi Answers

The Obama Administration continues to pretend it didn’t orchestrate a Benghazi terror cover-up following Judicial Watch’s release of damning internal emails exposing the Administration’s lies. Meanwhile, lawmakers are gearing up to force more answers from White House officials.

On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) called on Secretary of State John Kerry to provide Congressional testimony and explain why the emails were not released to lawmakers following a subpoena for Benghazi documents.

“If the White House won’t explain it, Secretary Kerry should come to the Capitol to explain why he defied an official congressional subpoena,” Boehner said in a statement. “And the White House needs to understand that this investigation will not end until the entire truth is revealed and justice and accountability are served.”

The White House emails in which Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes instructed Susan Rice to blame the 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on a YouTube video were obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Boehner said that withholding the emails from lawmakers is the “most flagrant example yet of the administration’s contempt for the American people’s right to know the truth about what happened when four Americans died in a fiery terrorist attack.”

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) also weighed in on the new information Thursday, telling reporters, “[This email] is all about the Presidential campaign. It’s not about trying to find out who committed this heinous crime. Not a single person who was responsible for the murder of these four brave Americans has been brought to justice.”

The Senator reiterated a call for a select committee to be set up to investigate the attack.

“The time has now come for a select committee because these talking points raise more questions than are answered,” McCain said. “This is a cover up of a situation that was politically motivated … and the American people deserve to know the truth.”

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called the emails “the smoking gun” that proves a White House cover-up occurred.

“They did not want you to know about this email … because it is the smoking gun,” he said on the Senate floor. “That shows they were constantly trying to manipulate the evidence. … That to me is unacceptable.”
