Ted Cruz Calls for Joint Select Committee on Benghazi
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today called for a joint select committee to investigate Benghazi.
Tonight, he was on “Hannity,” where he said we need truth and accountability in this investigation.
Eight months ago, Cruz said he introduced a resolution, co-sponsored by 25 senators, to hold a joint select committee on the attack. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) objected. Today, he said he asked a second time, and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) objected.
“The Democrats are all reading from the same partisan talking points,” Cruz said, adding that it’s sad to see the death of four Americans treated as a partisan matter.
Sean Hannity also asked Cruz if he’s contemplating a 2016 presidential run, noting that Rand Paul and Marco Rubio have both hinted at a possible run.
Cruz called Paul and Rubio his friend, but dodged the question a bit, telling Hannity, “I intend in 2016 to vote for whoever is standing up and leading.”
