Posted December 4, 2014 at 2:38pm

While not committing to congressional hearings on recent grand jury decisions in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, Speaker John A. Boehner on Thursday echoed concerns of other lawmakers following both rulings, saying Americans “deserve more answers about what really happened.”

“Clearly both of these are serious tragedies that we’ve seen in our society and I think the American people want to understand more of what the facts were,” Boehner said at his weekly news conference. “There are a lot of unanswered questions that Americans have and frankly, I have.”
