Sen. Lindsey Graham Threatens To Block Every Obama Nomination Over Benghazi
Where are the #Benghazi survivors? I’m going to block every appointment in the US Senate until they are made available to Congress.

Graham says he’ll block every nomination by President Obama until U.S. personnel who witnessed the 2012 Benghazi attack are made available to Congress. Yet another attempt by a Republican to stop everything in his power to get what he wants, in spite of there being no “scandal.”
The statement comes after a “60 Minutes” report Monday night that noted more than two dozen Americans who survived the attack have not been seen or heard from in public since. The administration has also not publicly provided the names of survivors and witnesses to the attack.
CBS News also reported that transcripts of FBI interviews with some of the survivors had been redacted.
In an interview with Fox News on Monday morning, Graham said that the survivors “have not been made available to the U.S. Congress for oversight purposes.”
“I’m tired of hearing from people on t.v., and reading about stuff in books,” Graham said. “We need to get to the bottom of this.”
