Rep. Martha Roby is setting the record straight — “The Select Committee on Benghazi has one mission: to find the truth about what happened before, during, and after the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that left four Americans dead including our ambassador.”
Thursday, the Congresswoman released a video clarifying the purpose of the House Select Committee on Benghazi after Congressional Democrats this week attempted to disband the committee in the wake of comments made by Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
McCarthy subjected the Benghazi committee to scrutiny last week after suggesting the taxpayer-funded investigation was politically motivated and credited the committee’s work for Hillary Clinton‘s drop in poll numbers.
McCarthy has since apologized for his comments, but that’s not stopped House Democrats from continuing to push for the committee to be shut down.
Despite these distractions, Roby, a Member of the Select Committee, said she and her colleagues remain focused on a fact-based investigation that answers questions never adequately addressed by the Obama Administration.
“The Obama Administration has never been straightforward with the American people about it, and that’s not right. The people deserve the truth, and that’s what we’re working to deliver,” Roby said. “If anyone is being political about this, it’s the Democrats. For Democrats to try to dissolve the Committee is really just another attempt to keep the truth from coming out.”
