Rep. Schiff Statement on Intelligence Committee Vote to Send Benghazi Report for Declassification

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a senior Member of the Intelligence Committee and Member of the Benghazi Select Committee, released the following statement after the Intelligence Committee voted to approve its investigative report on the Benghazi attack, which will now go through classification review for public release:

“The Intelligence Committee report adds to the body of investigative work now completed by numerous committees in Congress, and reaches the same noncontroversial conclusions – that the initial talking points provided by the intelligence community were flawed because of conflicting assessments not an intention to deceive, that there was no stand down order, that the diplomatic facilities lacked adequate security, and that our personnel at the scene acted bravely and appropriately. 

“This bipartisan report should be declassified quickly, so that the American people may know what we have learned behind closed doors, and how it concurs with other analysis already made public."
