One week after Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy touted the Benghazi Select Committee’s effect on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s poll numbers, Rep. Louise M. Slaughter, D-N.Y, took to the House floor Wednesday to propose a resolution to dismantle the committee. The chairman ruled that the resolution did not constitute a question of the privileges of the House. Slaughter appealed the ruling and House voted to table the appeal, 280-183.
