Congressmen battle over Benghazi witness intimidation

Viewers who tuned in to “Fox News Sunday” witnessed two congressmen from opposite sides of the isle in a spirited debate over whether the White House has been intimidating witnesses of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, which resulted in the loss of four American lives.

Chris Wallace, the show’s host, invited Reps. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and Democrat from Massachusetts Stephen Lynch Sunday to talk Benghazi, especially in view of testimony that is expected Wednesday from three witnesses, two of whom haven’t been heard from before.

Lynch thought the whole procedure in the GOP-controlled House “disgraceful,”

“The Republicans control the House,” he said. “We don’t have the ability to hold a hearing. The Democrats have been completely kept out of this whole process. This has been a one-sided investigation, if you want to call it that. … I think it’s disgraceful.”

Chaffetz was disgusted also — not with the committee hearings but with the stonewalling and witness intimidation engaged in by the White House, adding that the witnesses are “scared to the death” of State Department actions.

He later added that Clinton “claims” to take full responsibility for what happened, but at the same time “pleads ignorance.”
