“Republicans keep blaming everyone else under the sun for their own repeated delays, but they are the ones who have dragged out this investigation as close as possible to the election. It is inexplicable that Republicans waited until after their widely-criticized hearing with Secretary Clinton to even seek an interview with General Ham, and even more inexplicable that they jerked him around like this.”

“I am extremely disappointed that Republicans blocked this measure late last night after Chairman Gowdy’s public admission because they apparently do not want anyone to know how much their wasteful and partisan investigation is costing the American people. The Department of Defense has a critical job to do, which is to keep our nation safe from those who would do us harm—but Republicans keep making numerous duplicative, wasteful, and unnecessary demands that appear designed to drag out the Committee’s work even closer to the election.”

“Chairman Gowdy has finally admitted what we have all known for years: the central Republican allegation that the military was told to withhold assets that could have saved lives in Benghazi for political reasons is wrong,” said Ranking Member Cummings. “Based on the Chairman’s admission today, I call on the Select Committee to stop harassing the Pentagon with baseless demands, release the transcripts of our witness interviews, and stop wasting millions of taxpayer dollars dragging out the investigation closer and closer to the election.”

“By dragging out the investigation so close to the presidential election, demanding that the Defense Department waste countless hours and taxpayer funds tracking down individuals who call into Sean Hannity’s radio show or post political messages on Facebook, and threatening to subpoena military service members who are serving our nation overseas, your actions have damaged the credibility of the Select Committee beyond repair.”

“Two years ago, I decided to participate in this investigation because we needed someone in the room to defend the truth. Two years and millions of dollars later, Republicans have lost any semblance of credibility as they continue to drag this out as close as they can to the election. Republicans should release the transcripts, stop squandering taxpayer dollars, and shut down this disgraceful partisan charade before it does even more harm.”
