Press Release

Washington, DC- Rep. Linda T. Sánchez (CA-38), a member of the Select Committee on Benghazi, today issued a response to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s stunning admission on Fox News about the Benghazi Committee’s true political purpose:

“Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled the curtain back on the true purpose of the Select Committee on Benghazi – not to get the facts – but instead as a political ploy against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This stunning admission shows a gross misuse of millions in tax payer dollars for a purely political purpose.  I believe it is time to end this investigation and for Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader McCarthy, and Chairman Trey Gowdy to apologize to the families of the four Americans who died during the attack and the American people for abusing the memories of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.” 

Last night in an interview on FOX, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy admitted:

“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee. A select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known that any of that had happened had we not fought to make that happen.”
