In a one-page letter to President Obama on Monday, 97 House Republicans said they are “deeply troubled” by and will “strongly oppose” a nomination of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice for Secretary of State.

Though the Senate would ultimately have to confirm her appointment, House Republicans echoed earlier criticism by their Senate colleagues by questioning Rice’s credibility due to her “misleading statements” following the Benghazi attack.

“Ambassador Rice is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter,” the GOP lawmakers said in the letter, which took the president to task for failing to answer their concerns. “Our questions remain unanswered, and your Administration continues to deny Congress access to critical information necessary for effective oversight.”
