The House voted Thursday to establish a select committee on Benghazi, formally launching a comprehensive and contentious investigation aimed at answering lingering questions about what happened before, during and after the terror attack that killed four Americans.
The House voted 232-186 to approve the panel. The vote breakdown was 225 Republicans and 7 Democrats in favor, with 186 Democrats voting against the measure.
The vote was never in doubt, as majority Republicans largely were united in support of the committee ever since House Speaker John Boehner called for it last week. Unclear is whether Democrats will boycott the investigation itself.

Subpoena and jail every one that does not comply. Scorched Earth time time boys.
EVERY. Not one or two. EVERY. Including Barry.
Spring is here, and in Washington the scent of cherry blossoms and congressional whitewash are in the air.
Amen to that.
The House needs to open a jail at the Capitol again so it can actually enforce findings go contempt.
Which 7 Dems voted for it ?
We will see what all that elected ‘lesser evil’ does for...or to...the country. Here’s hopin’ for the best.
There is precedent for moving them offsite, but under the building again is better IMO. Keep them under the thumb.
Don’t know yet, I’ll post a link to House vote when it’s posted.
Wait, you mean somebody’s reading something other than the NYT’s or watching something other the MSNBC? Is this possible? Against “no drama Obama”?
I don’t think the GOP really knows how to do this, for years they had fake hearings by Issa designed to fool conservatives, give cover to the left and make sure nothing gets done.
“....with 186 Democrats voting against the measure.”
Dhimmicrats not in favor of finding out the truth.
Good thought, but we are going to need the Army for that and I am not sure that Obama's remade, rainbow, anti-Christian, PC army is up to the task.
I don’t either. I think they will hamstring Gowdy as soon as he makes waves ‘for the good of the country’, call it a day and ‘begin the healing process.’
I do not think I’m wrong but pray I am.
Of course, but so what?
Conservatives get excited, someone makes red meat statements, Democrats call it a farce and nothing happens afterwards.
Isn’t that the prevailing pattern for the past decade?
Remind them Joe was right ;)
If Gowdy gets tough, bonehead will shut it down
If one throws rocks into a pig pen, the pigs that squeal are the ones that got hit.
Which are squealing the loudest with the announcement of this select committee?
They are petrified that this committee will uncover things they don’t want revealed.
No, we need people with principle and the will to wield it like a hammer.
