GOP-majority Benghazi panel can still be fair, Rep. Trey Gowdy says
Question of the Day
Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Republican, said Wednesday that Democrats would criticize the committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attack whether or not Republicans had a majority.
“Do you really think they’re going to change their mind on the investigation if the constitution of the committee is equal?” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “It can be fair and still be dominated by one party or the other.”
Mr. Gowdy was tapped earlier this week to lead the committee, which will investigate the White House response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The committee will have seven Republicans and five Democrats.
