Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will press House leaders to subpoena the survivors of last year’s attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi.
Graham told Fox News he would meet with Republican House leaders on Thursday to ask them to issue the subpoenas. House Republicans hold the majority in the lower chamber and have the power to subpoena the White House, while Senate Republicans do not.
“I’m going to meet with the House leadership tomorrow, hoping they will take up the Benghazi cause,” Graham said Wednesday night. “The one thing Republicans can do is use the leverage they have in the House to subpoena these survivors so we’ll find out what happened that night. I guarantee you there are people wanting to talk, but are afraid to talk, and a subpoena would make a difference.”
