'Disturbing and Perhaps Criminal': Issa Questions Why Benghazi Docs Were Not Turned Over
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) lashed out at the Obama administration at the start of a hearing this morning on the Benghazi attack. The hearing comes just days after new emails surfaced, pointing to a link between top White House officials and the false narrative put forth by Susan Rice about how the attack happened.
Issa explained that since late March the committee has received 3,200 new documents that should have been turned over when its investigation began more than a year and a half ago.
He said the new information contained in the FOIA documents and released by Judicial Watch shows that "the White House produced the talking points that Ambassador Rice used, not the intelligence community." Issa questioned why these particular documents were not produced long ago.
"It is disturbing and perhaps criminal that documents like these were hidden by the Obama administration from Congress and the public alike," said Issa, vowing to "chip away" until the full truth about Benghazi comes out.
