House issues subpoenas to get Benghazi documents from State Department

August 2, 2013

As they prepared to head home for summer vacation, House Republicans fired off three subpoenas Thursday seeking more information from the State Department on the terrorist attack last year in Benghazi, Libya, and on the science the Environmental Protection Agency used to impose new clean air regulations.

The parting shots come amid a week of bitter partisanship that saw both the House and Senate fail to pass transportation spending bills, and saw each side point the finger at the other in arguing that Congress is broken.

Tempers flared on the Senate floor as Republican Sen. Susan M. Collins of Maine pleaded, without success, for her GOP colleagues to let the spending process go forward on the Democrats’ bills. Republican leaders, though, said the bills break the budget deal reached in 2011.

“We need to indicate we’re going to keep our word around here,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, after the GOP filibustered to block the spending bill.
