Lindsey Graham Threatens To Hold All Pending Nominations Over Benghazi
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is threatening to place a hold on all pending nominations unless the Obama Administration provides more information about the Benghazi attack:
Sen. Lindsey Graham said Monday he will hold up “every appointment” in the Senate until more questions are answered on Benghazi.
“I’m going to block every appointment in the United States Senate until the survivors [of the attack in Benghazi] are being made available to the Congress,” Graham said on Fox News’s “Fox and Friends.” “I’m tired of hearing from people on TV and reading about stuff in books.”
Graham (R-S.C.), who also tweeted about wanting to talk to those survivors, said Congress needs to “up its game”. He called for a joint select committee and addressed House Republicans on their efforts to continue pressing the administration on Benghazi.
“If we don’t have a joint select committee to get out of this stove piping problem, we’re never going to get the truth,” Graham said.
Yes, this is Graham running for reelection amid a multi-pronged Tea Party challenge in the primary.
