Joe Lieberman: Select Committee On Benghazi Unnecessary

Source: Huffington Post

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) split with his Senate allies John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday, telling "Fox News Sunday" that he doesn't think a special committee is needed to investigate the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

Lieberman's comments come after McCain and Graham, two of the top leaders on foreign policy for the Republican party in the Senate, expressed interest in launching a select panel to investigate the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans in September. McCain and Graham -- as well as Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) -- have argued that such a committee would help streamline the investigations that are already underway. But on the news show on Sunday, Lieberman and Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said an umbrella committee for the investigations is not necessary. Chambliss and Lieberman are involved in separate congressional investigations into the Benghazi attack.

“I respectfully separate from my two amigos on this one,” Lieberman said. “This was a tragedy, but doesn't rise to the level of 9/11/01. Our committees can handle this and come up with the answers. If for some reason our colleagues think when we're done we haven't done a good enough job, then let them make a special committee," Lieberman added.

Chambliss, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, noted he had “slight disagreement with my good friends” about the need for a select committee. “The committees within the United States Senate are capable of investigating this," Chambliss said.

just listened to Diane Feinstein amd this Republican named Rogers. He seemed intent on trying to lead blame to the Whitehouse, and Feinstein then said the whitehouse had nothing to do with it. And what the clown Lindsey Graham claims officials changed information just to make President Obama look good. Sink him some more. They are exposing themselves even more with baseless allegations. So now Graham has implicated more people in this conspiracy.
