Cruz Calls for Benghazi Joint Select Committee

by Andrew C. McCarthy

On Sean Hannity’s Fox News program last night, Senator Ted Cruz recapped the Senate debate in which he renewed his call for a joint congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi massacre. He explained that Democrats are blocking action because there has already been enough investigation even as they acknowledge they do not know basic facts about what happened on the evening of September 11, 2012 — like where the commander-in-chief was, what he was doing, whether he was sleeping, whether he took any meaningful action to rescue Americans who were under siege for hours after he was first informed of the attack.

Senator Cruz also opined that a select committee will be needed for the IRS scandal as well — a subject I took up in this past weekend’s column, here.
