Boehner Names Republicans to Benghazi Committee

As Democrats mull whether to participate in the special committee to investigate the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, Speaker John A. Boehner announced the GOP slate from the House floor on Friday afternoon.

The Ohio Republican read off the names of the selected members before a chamber hushed in anticipation.

The appointees are Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Peter Roskam of Illinois, Mike Pompeo of Kansas, Martha Roby of Alabama and Susan Brooks of Indiana. Boehner named Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., as the chairman-designate earlier this week.
