Boehner Won’t Call On NRCC To Stop Fundraising Off Benghazi


Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) dodged several questions Thursday about whether his party’s congressional campaign arm should be using the upcoming Benghazi select committee to raise funds.

At his weekly Capitol press conference, he maintained that his party’s “focus is on getting the truth” of the 2012 tragedy that left four Americans dead.

The National Republican Congressional Committee faced some criticism Wednesday after it sought to raise money from donors over the upcoming investigation. The panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), said the issue shouldn’t be used for fundraising.
