Sen. Dianne Feinstein says the new House Select Committee on Benghazi led by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) is “ridiculous,” considering that her Senate Intelligence Committee has already investigated the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Libya.
“t’s ridiculous,” the Democratic Intelligence Committee chairwoman said Sunday on “State of the Union” on CNN. “It’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob actually, I think that’s what’s going on. There have been four major reports, we spent a year and a half on a report. We held hearings, thousands of pages were reviewed, the staff spent hours and weeks on it.”
The California senator also told Candy Crowley she’s confident all the necessary questions have been answered on the White House’s “talking points” in the days after the attack that killed four Americans.
“I believe they have,” she said. “Our report was bipartisan, and they were certainly answered to the satisfaction of the Intelligence Committee.”
