Republican lawmakers rallied en masse this week against the potential of President Barack Obama nominating United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary of State because of her involvement in the Benghazi, Libya terror-attack scandal.

The letter, signed by 97 House Republicans, says that Rice’s  actions in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack raise serious questions about her credibility and ability to hold a position of such power as Secretary of State.

“Though Ambassador Rice has been our Representative to the U.N., we believe her misleading statements over the days and weeks following the attack on our embassy in Libya that led to the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans caused irreparable damage to her credibility both at home and around the world,” they wrote in their letter, led by Representative Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.).

Though the Senate, not the House, would have the last word on confirmation if Obama did opt to nominate Rice, House Republicans have allies in Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham R-S.C.), who have vowed to block the nomination.
