Senator Scott Statement on Benghazi Report

Washington - U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) issued the statement below following the release of the House Select Committee on Benghazi's final report.

"From the beginning, Trey Gowdy promised an investigation that looked at the facts and only the facts. While the Obama Administration stonewalled attempt after attempt by the Benghazi committee to obtain relevant information, Chairman Gowdy and his committee continued to press forward with their charge of finding out why four Americans died that night in Libya. Because of the committee's work, it is clear now that multiple warning signs were ignored, help was incredibly slow to arrive, and for hours after the attack the Obama Administration was paralyzed by indecision. I want to thank Trey and the committee for their steadfast dedication to this important issue, and my prayers remain with the families of the four brave Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi."
