Benghazi Committee Should Be Disbanded, Schiff Writes in NYT

“The Select Committee became little more than a partisan tool to influence the presidential race, a dangerous precedent that will haunt Congress for decades,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the Permanent Select Cmte on Intelligence and a member of the Benghazi panel writes in NYT op-ed.

  • Says cmte has been “aimless and slow-moving, not knowing what it was looking for or where”
  • None of the Hillary Clinton e-mails obtained by panel substantiate “the bogus theory that the State Department ordered the military to ‘stand down’": Schiff
  • Jamal Ware, spokesman for the panel, says in e-mailed statement that Schiff has attended just 1 of more than 45 interviews conducted by the cmte, and that Schiff ‘‘has no clue as to what facts have been discussed or uncovered by a committee he sits on”
