Excerpted from Buzz Feed: Sen. John McCain declared Wednesday that he and his Republican colleagues have trust in the Obama administration’s investigation into the attack on the U.S.consulate in Benghazi.
“There is no credibility amongst most of us concerning the administration and the numerous controversies and contradictions that have been involved in their handling of this issue,” McCain said at a Capitol Hill press conference. “It is essential for the Congress to conduct its own independent assessment.”
McCain, flanked by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Kelly Ayyotte, announced that the trio will introduce legislation this afternoon to create a temporary select committee in the Senate to independently investigate the attack that killed four Americans.
“In Watergate, nobody died. In Iran-Contra, nobody died,” McCain said, pointing to select committees after both as precent for one on Benghazi.
