Press Release
Sánchez says: “this committee is obsessed with chasing unfounded conspiracy theories and not interested in the truth.”

Washington, DC – Representative Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and a member of the Select Committee on Benghazi, issued the following statement on May 8th – the two year anniversary of the creation of the Benghazi Committee:

“It’s been two years since House Republicans launched the Select Committee on Benghazi. After 731 days and nearly $7 million spent, this committee has not uncovered anything that has changed the essential facts that we already know from nine previous reports. Instead of a serious discussion about the events surrounding the tragedy in Benghazi, Republicans have chosen to use this investigation to bludgeon Secretary Clinton for their own political purposes. After two years, it should be abundantly clear to every American that this committee is obsessed with chasing unfounded conspiracy theories and not interested in the truth.”
