BREAKING: Trey Gowdy to Chair Select Committee on Benghazi

Barb Wire

Ever since the tragic Benghazi terror attack occurred, there have been repeated calls for Speaker of the House John Boehner to appoint a Select Committee to investigate, but the speaker has resisted those calls — until now.

After a smoking gun email obtained by Judicial Watch revealed a White House cover-up of the fact that Benghazi was a terrorist attack and not the result of an obscure YouTube video, Boehner is now expected to announce a Special Committee to investigate Benghazi. Boehner is supposed to make the announcement sometime this afternoon.

According to FOX News, South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy will chair that Select Committee. Gowdy, a former prosecutor, is scheduled to appear with FOX News’ Greta van Susteren On the Record tonight at 7 pm ET.

The Weekly Standard was the first to report on the possibility of a Select Committee earlier this morning.
