Apr 30, 2015 Press Release
“This shameless new fundraising effort reveals just how closely intertwined the Benghazi Select Committee is with Republican political attacks against Hillary Clinton,” said Ranking Member Cummings. “Raising political cash off the deaths of four brave Americans is offensive and sickening, and Chairman Gowdy should put an end to it immediately.”

Report May Be Delayed Until “Just Months Before the 2016 Presidential Election”
“The Republicans’ multi-year search for evidence to back up their Benghazi conspiracy theories has turned up nothing. The Select Committee has identified no evidence—documentary, testimonial, or otherwise—to support claims that Secretary Clinton ordered a stand-down, approved an illicit weapons program, or any other wild allegation Republicans have made for years. Instead, this appears to be a coordinated attempt by Republicans to drag out this taxpayer-funded search for anything they can use against Hillary Clinton, while their political arm raises campaign funds off the deaths of four Americans.”
Apr 22, 2015 Press Release
Secretary Clinton agreed to testify months ago—in public and under oath—so the Select Committee’s claim that it has no choice but to subject her to a private staff interview is inaccurate. Rather than drag out this political charade into 2016 and selectively leak portions of a closed-door interview, the Committee should schedule the public hearing, make her records public, and re-focus its efforts on the attacks in Benghazi.
Apr 22, 2015 Press Release
"With the Republicans’ obsessive focus on Hillary Clinton, and their now stated intention to drag out this political charade until just months before the 2016 election, the Select Committee no longer bears any resemblance to its original purpose."

Mar 27, 2015 Press Release
“This confirms what we all knew—that Secretary Clinton already produced her official records to the State Department, that she did not keep her personal emails, and that the Select Committee has already obtained her emails relating to the attacks in Benghazi. It is time for the Committee to stop this political charade and instead make these documents public and schedule Secretary Clinton’s public testimony now.”

With an Unlimited Budget, No Time limit, and No Rules, No End in Sight for Select Committee

WASHINGTON—Today marks the 320th day since the authorization of the Select Committee on Benghazi, surpassing multiple previous investigations, including the investigations of Hurricane Katrina, the attack on Pearl Harbor, the assassination of President Kennedy, and Iran-Contra.

Heightened Standard for Clinton Raises Concerns Committee Motivated by Politics
Republican demands for Secretary Clinton’s server seem designed to spark a fight with a potential presidential candidate rather than following the standard practice in congressional investigations. When Chairman Henry Waxman investigated dozens of Bush White House staff who sent official emails from accounts at the Republican National Committee —which also housed its own servers – he did not demand access to RNC servers, backup tapes, or non-official emails, but rather worked with RNC attorneys to develop search terms and then relied on them to produce those documents that were responsive. We should follow this responsible approach to resolve any remaining questions about these documents.
Mar 10, 2015 Press Release
"I am glad Secretary Clinton addressed this issue directly, and I hope the Benghazi Select Committee will return to its purpose of investigating the attacks in Benghazi instead of attempting to impact the 2016 presidential election. I am pleased that the State Department will release the Secretary's emails about Benghazi first, as Democrats requested, so that the public can read them and see for themselves that they are consistent with the independent Accountability Review Board's findings two years ago. If Republicans still want additional assurances that all official government records have been produced, they can follow standard practice and ask this Secretary -- and previous Secretaries -- to sign certifications under oath."
Mar 10, 2015 Press Release
“Since the Department has already produced approximately 850 pages of these documents to the Select Committee on Benghazi, we request that the Department begin its review for public release with this subset of 850 pages of Benghazi-related documents in order to make them available to the public first without waiting for the full review of all 55,000 pages of documents.”
