(note: Tonight we got another cosponsor which brings the total to 187. Announcement will be made tomorrow.)
We are happy to announce yet another co-sponsor for Congressman Frank Wolf's bill, H.Res. 36, which would establish a select committee to investigate the attack on the consulate in Benghazi.
Congressman Vicky Hartzler, representing Missouri’s fourth district, brings the total number of cosponsors to 186. This comes on the heels of our announcement last week of another cosponsor, Congressman Candice Miller of Michigan’s 10th district. In February alone, there were six new cosponsors added to the list.
It’s been over a year since the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, yet we still do not know the details of what transpired that day and no one has been held accountable. There are those in the administration and the U.S. Congress that want this issue to go away. We pledge to do all we can to make sure that doesn’t happen -- but we need your help. It’s time for ANSWERS. It’s time for ACCOUNTABILITY. The U.S. Congress must form a special, short-term committee with subpoena power to focus solely on the Benghazi attack. Right now, over 2/3rd of the House Republican Conference agree and have cosponsored H. Res. 36.
Join us in demanding answers on Benghazi and make your voice heard by looking up and contacting your representative through our new system: Engage. It’s fast, easy, and effective.
The Summary of the bill is below:
Establishes in the House of Representatives a select Committee to investigate and report to the House on:
- • any intelligence known to the United States relating to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012;
- • any requests for additional security, or actions taken by federal agencies to improve security at the consulate before the attack;
- • a definitive timeline of it;
- • how the relevant agencies and the executive branch responded to it and whether appropriate congressional notifications were made;
- • any improper conduct by officials relating to the attack;
- • recommendations on what steps Congress and the President should take to prevent future attacks; and
- • any other relevant issues relating to the attack or the response to it.
