Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-7) released the following statement commending the selection of Congressman Trey Gowdy as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi:
"I commend the selection of Congressman Trey Gowdy as chairman of the select committee. I can think of nobody better than Trey to spearhead this effort. Trey is trusted among his colleagues and is a man of great integrity. His prosecutorial background will be an enormous value as he and his fellow committee members seek out the facts of what happened in Benghazi, Libya and how the administration responded to that terror attack. After years of obstruction, it's time the American people finally get all the answers, and Trey will ensure that happens."
