FILE - This April 11, 2011 file photo shows U.S. envoy Chris Stevens in Benghazi, Libya. House Speaker John Boehner on Friday declared he’d schedule a vote to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack, escalating a political battle that has raged since the final days of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Boehner said U.S. officials misled the American people after the Sept. 11, 2012, assault on the U.S. diplomatic post in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. He said emails released this week showed the White House has withheld documents from congressional investigators and begged the question, “What else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people.” (AP Photo/Ben Curtis, File)
