OBAMA ADMINISTRATION BLOCKS QUESTIONS ON #BENGHAZI President refusing to answer more inquiries about the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya.

The White House and the House Select Committee on Benghazi have reached an impasse as the latter works to finish its review of the terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead in 2012. In the latest chapter of the long-running investigation, the committee posed a series of questions for President Barack Obama, which the White House has refused to answer after writing the move off as a partisan attempt to make the current administration look uncooperative ahead of the presidential election.

On June 7, just weeks before it is expected to release its final Benghazi report, the House Select Committee sent the president more than a dozen questions about the terrorist attack in Libya that have been left unanswered. The White House argues that the questions are inappropriate, redundant, and could have serious implications for the constitutional separation of powers should the president answer them, Politicoreports. “If the president were to answer your questions, his response would suggest Congress has the unilateral power to demand answers from the president about his official acts,” according to a letter obtained by Politico from the Obama administration send to Trey Gowdy, chairman of the Benghazi committee.

The committee, unsurprisingly, denied that this was true and criticized the Obama administration for its stance. “It's no surprise that President Obama would rather take questions from Derek Jeter than answer questions for the American people about the Benghazi terrorist attacks, which followed what he himself has called his worst mistake—failing to plan for what happened after the State Department pushed U.S. intervention in Libya,” said Jamal Ware, a spokesperson for the House Select Committee, Politico reports. “The White House’s fictional narrative today is the latest chapter of the story it has been spinning since 2012.”

With the Republican Party fearful that its presidential nominee, Donald Trump, could trigger a tsunami of down-ticket election losses, Democrats argue that the timing of the questions is suspicious. “Republicans waited more than two years—until right before the presidential conventions—to send their questions to the White House, and they concealed them from the Select Committee Democrats. That tells you all you need to know, and the White House is right to see this for exactly what it is—a last-ditch partisan stunt,” Paul Bell, a spokesperson for the Democrats on the panel, told Politico.
