(CNN) - Sen. Lindsey Graham is doubling down on his promise to filibuster any White House nominees until he gets answers on Benghazi.
When the South Carolina Republican has asked for survivors of the September 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission to be interviewed by Congress, the response, he said, was "take a hike."
The refusal to make the survivors available is "an unacceptable way for the Obama administration to behave," Graham told Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room."
Graham's determination on getting answers stems from an explosive report Sunday from CBS's "60 Minutes" on the attack, he said.
As a member of the Senate minority, Graham is unable to subpoena witnesses on his own, he said. "All I can do is have what leverage I have," he said, meaning holding up the nominees. "I don't like doing this. It's not my nature."
Its time to shut down this Benghazi committee hearings... they can learn nothing valuable about what future policy and ways to avoid another similar event. Survivors can only repeat what has already been seen on video and the timelines explained over and over again by the military and the lack of funding to State etc etc
So spoilt child that he is I'll hold up government appointments on anything some more while I waste everyone's time on a dead subject doing nothing for the countries benefit!!
If it were not so sad it time tom LOL.
Do what you need to do to get answers.
Lindsey and the Guns Over People tea potty are desperate. Their fake scandals are getting no traction.
It's over Ms. Lindsey, your utterly do nothing party has tried for over a year. There's nothing to see move along and go get yourself a little fan and some mint tea.
Go sit on your porch sweetheart!
Obama is a traitor to the USA. What happens to traitors?
Campaign buzz words.
The savior has become the anti-christ.
Wow! The President and Clinton tell us there is nothing to see her....but go to great lengths to keep anyone with firsthand knowledge about this from speaking to anyone. Kind of like what we see with Obama and al of his personal information – grades in school.....writing while at Harvard....etc. If there is nothing to see, why won't you let us have the information Mr. President?
I wish more senators had a backbone like Lindsay Graham.
why don't you "take a hike." then. Congress needs to spare time at list once in a while to do important things like creating job for Americans.
Flat lie, this guy is so pathetic to society, SC.
Grand standing and pandering. How can these tweeds expect to stay in office. Feeling like I'm living in a 3rd world country.
