New FBI Director Pressured To Step Up Benghazi Probe
Inquiring congressional minds want to know
Just two days after being confirmed, the new leader of the FBI is facing pressure from Congress to get to the bottom of the Benghazi terror attacks.
Eight Republican lawmakers, voicing frustration about the seemingly slow pace of the investigation 10 months after the Sept. 11 attacks, are preparing a letter to James Comey demanding he make the Benghazi probe a priority, Fox News confirms. Comey was confirmed on Monday to replace Robert Mueller at the helm of the FBI.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who started the letter along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News that the FBI is failing to interview key people connected with the militant group Ansar al-Sharia.
