“This is a serious investigation. I don’t want theater, I don’t want a sideshow. I want the members of this committee to find the facts for the four families who lost their loved ones, and the facts for the American people,” he said.

Boehner said he chose seven Republicans and five Democrats because the Republicans have the majority in the House. He said the committee will look at events leading up to the attack, the requests for more security, the events of the night of the attack, and why the White House described the attack in the way that it did.

“The American people deserve the truth,” he said.
