Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement after Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa issued a subpoena to Secretary of State John Kerry:
"Chairman Issa's subpoena of Secretary Kerry calls into question the Republicans' stated purpose of the Select Committee on Benghazi. The Select Committee is a sign of no confidence in Issa just as Issa's action today is a sign of a lack of confidence in the Select Committee.
"Why are House Republicans putting the American people through this ongoing saga to nowhere? Rather than focus on the priorities of the American people -- creating jobs, strengthening the middle class, and passing immigration reform -- House Republicans continue to try to exploit the tragic events in Benghazi with one grossly partisan investigation after another. The American people deserve better."
