Various media outlets have confirmed that John Boehner will convene a Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal.
It will be headed by Trey Gowdy.
House Republicans will announce their intention to form a special select committee on Benghazi Friday, intensifying already highly-charged GOP scrutiny of the Obama administration’s handling of the September 2012 attacks that left four Americans dead.
The committee will be led by GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.
The announcement comes after newly released documents reignited the controversy over how the White House and the State Department crafted their response to the attack. Republicans allege that the White House knowingly misled the public about the origin of the assault in order to bolster claims that terrorist groups had been weakened during Obama’s first term; Democrats say that the GOP has fueled the controversy for political purposes alone.
Earlier Friday, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa announced the subpoena of Secretary of State John Kerry over documents related to the attack.
