Benghazi continues to be in the news only because dogged Republicans refuse to let it go. One of them is Senator Richard Burr of NC., who brought up the issue at John Brennen’s confirmation hearing, last week.

CNS News reported:

Sen. Richard Burr, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said that the CIA has “flatly refused” to give some Benghazi-related documents to the committee, which is conducting an investigation of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the State Department and CIA personnel and facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Sen. Burr made the assertion last week at the confirmation hearing for John Brennan, whom President Barack Obama has nominated to be director of the CIA. Brennan currently serves as the president’s counterterrorism adviser.

“Mr. Brennan, as you know, the committee’s conducting a thorough inquiry into the attacks in Benghazi, Libya,” Sen. Burr said. “In the course of this investigation, the CIA has repeatedly delayed and in some cases flatly refused to provide documents to this committee.”

None of the other members of the committee contradicted Burr’s assertion.

Wednesday, Senator Burr asked Jack Lew, the White House Chief of Staff and nominee for Treasury Sec, who briefed the President on the night of the attack, and Lew was unable to answer the question even though he claims he was in the room.
