The U.S. House is expected to set up a select committee that will investigate the deadly Benghazi attack. Democrats have been considering a boycott of the committee, accusing the G.O.P. of stacking the deck with 7 Republicans and 5 Democrats. Fourth District Congressman Doc Hastings scoffs at the Democrats charge;

“We’re the majority party in the house, so it only follows logically that the majority party would have more seats. That’s not anything unusual at all.”

In fact when former Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi set up a Select Committee on global warming in 2007 there were nine Democrats and six Republicans.

Meanwhile the Republican from Pasco says the Select committee is needed ;
.

“When you are being stonewalled as the Administration is doing by not turning stuff over, I think you just have to ratchet it up to a higher level and this select committee I think will do that.”

The Republican lawmaker who will head the panel, Trey Gowdy of South Carolina indicated that he would re-examine all of the questions surrounding Benghazi.
