Gowdy Re-Appointed Head of Benghazi Select Committee

Speaker of the House John Boehner announced today that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) will continue on as the Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi for the 114th Congress.


Boehner released a statement today.

“On September 11, 2012, four Americans were killed in a brutal terrorist attack in Libya.  Two years later, the American people still have far too many questions about what happened that night – and why.  That’s why I will reappoint Rep. Trey Gowdy and the Republican members of the House Select Committee to investigate the events in Benghazi in the 114th Congress.  I look forward to the definitive report Chairman Gowdy and the Select Committee will present to the American people.”

However, the House will need to vote to re-establish the committee come January as it is a select committee and not a permanent one.

Boehner did not mention if the same Republicans would be on the committee or if new ones would be appointed.
