Sen. Lindsey Graham Wants FBI Interviews of Benghazi Survivors
Senator Lindsey Graham (R – SC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that he wants to see the interviews the FBI conducted with the individuals who survived the Benghazi attacks.
“You know the FBI conducted interviews with the survivors one or two days after the attacks, and it hasn’t been released to the Congress. I just can’t get over that,” he said.
Mr. Graham agrees with Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R – UT), that the State Department has been “stonewalling” information on the survivors, saying:
“We can’t get the basic information. We still don’t know who changed the talking points. We don’t have the FBI interviews of the survivors. We don’t have the cables coming from Libya on the day of the incident back to Washington. It’s amazing what they’re not sharing with Congress.”
Senator Marco Rubio (R – FL) has not heard a reason why the State Department has not released information to Congress on the Benghazi survivors, telling Breitbart News:
“Well I haven’t heard the security rationale for not doing so yet and if it would somehow impede an active investigation, I haven’t heard their argument as to why they do not want to do that, but eventually they are going to have to do that because that’s important."
He added, “Whether that should happen today or next week or next month, I’ll hold judgment until I give them an opportunity to answer us tomorrow as to why they haven’t done so yet.”
The State Department’s Accountability Review Board released an unclassified report regarding the deadly Benghazi attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday night. State Department officials Thomas Nides and Bill Burns will testify at House and Senate hearings about the Benghazi attack, in place of Secretary of State Hillary, on Thursday.
