WASHINGTON — House Democrats opened the door Tuesday to participating in a select committee investigation of Benghazi if they are equally represented on the panel with Republicans.

House Speaker John Boehner has named a GOP congressman to lead the select committee but has yet to outline his full plan. A vote to authorize the probe is expected this week. It is unlikely the Republican majority would accept the Democratic minority’s request for equal representation.

“If this review is to be fair, it must be truly bipartisan,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said.

    Step right up Dumbocrats that need to get re-elected this fall. Another chance for you to fool your voters into thinking you actually want to improve this country!

    I guess the DIMocRATS figured out that by not participating they might as well confess the administrations intentional cover-up.

    Pelosi had a select committee investigating energy and global warming. She picked 8 democrats and 6 republicans. Tell Nancy to FO. What a crazy bitch.

    Nancy Pelosi is a special kind of bat$hit crazy. Newly discovered emails indicating lies told at previous hearings justify the call for additional investigation. What is Pelosi afraid of? Ooops, we all know the answer to that. Like all libs, she's afraid of the truth.

    Pack... The Wicked Witch of the West is afraid Gowdy might find MORE than the D's want found. This way her party can obstruct and claim there was never a scandal.

    You pubs need to get a life. Hillary will be the next President of the United States.

    Four died, and Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice lied. That Obama blamed the coordinated attack using military weapons upon the Americans in Benghazi on a video supposedly seen on youtube in the middle of the desert on September 11 was absurd. That Democrats continue to defend the Obama administration's cover-up--perhaps to protect then Secretary of State Clinton and possible presidential candidate (What difference does it make now?)--is disgraceful.

    Headline should have read "Democrats open door to obstructionism in Benghazi probe".
