Washington, DC- Today, Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (D-CA) made the following statement after she was selected to serve on the House Select Committee on Benghazi: 


“I am honored to have been asked to serve on this select committee with colleagues that I trust and respect. When your Leader asks you to serve your country on a select committee, it makes sense to be in that room,” said Rep. Linda Sánchez. “Although I am disheartened that we are putting the families affected by this tragedy through this partisan exercise, I am committed to looking at the evidence and making decisions based on what that evidence shows. Leaving politics out of the room is going to be a challenge for this committee, but our responsibility to the American people is to carefully analyze the facts, and not just make up allegations. I hope my Republicans colleagues will adhere to the same principles.”
