Boehner: I'm ready to 'reappoint' members to special Benghazi panel in new Congress

House Speaker John BoehnerSpeaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday evening announced that he is reappointing Republican Trey Gowdy of South Carolina to head the Select Committee on Benghazi next Congress. The problem, however, is that by doing so, Boehner named a chairman to a panel that does not yet exist. Because the Benghazi committee is select and not permanent or standing, the House will have to vote again to re-create it when Congress returns for a new session in January. Boehner’s statement did not mention that another vote would need to occur in order for Gowdy to have a panel to lead or for other Republicans to serve on it.
