WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made the following statement touting Chairman Trey Gowdy’s investigation into the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Graham has championed the Select Committee on Benghazi's work and Chairman Gowdy’s pursuit to bring justice to the families of those killed in the attack.
“Every American who believes we deserve the truth about what happened in Benghazi should be proud of the work by Trey Gowdy. His committee has uncovered facts that no one else has found. In fact, his work is making other investigations look incomplete and incompetent.
“For the sake of the families of Americans who lost their lives in the Benghazi attacks, I deeply regret that he was not put in charge of this investigation even sooner.
“I have complete confidence Trey Gowdy will not stop investigating until all the facts about what happened in Benghazi – before, during, and after the attacks – are known.
“The attacks on Trey’s work are growing stronger and more intense. You know this means he is getting closer to the truth. For those who want to avoid responsibility for their actions regarding Benghazi, Trey Gowdy has become their worst nightmare.”
