Jay Carney: Benghazi Committee 'Blatantly Political and Partisan'

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney criticized the new select committee formed to investigate the Benghazi attacks, calling it a “blatantly political and partisan effort.”

House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) announced the panel Friday afternoon following the House of Representatives vote, which included seven Democrats.

Carney criticized Republicans for using the investigation to fundraise, and he insisted that they were only trying to motivate their base for the midterm elections.

Carney added that “through every investigation, the conspiracy theories that have fueled Republican interest in this have all fallen apart.”
