Issa Praises Decision to Name Oversight Member Trey Gowdy as Chairman of Select Committee on Benghazi

May 5, 2014

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., today released the following statement in response to Speaker Boehner’s announcement that Oversight Committee member Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., will chair the House select committee to investigate the attacks in Benghazi:

“Speaker Boehner could not have chosen a Member more committed to getting the full truth about the before, during, and after of the Benghazi terrorist attacks than Congressman Trey Gowdy.  Trey has been an integral contributor to the Oversight Committee investigation and takes the knowledge we have gained, through subpoenas and individual testimony, to his new role leading the new Select Committee.  I look forward to continuing to work with him as he leads the effort, across committee jurisdictions, to find facts, accountability, and needed reforms.”
