House Republicans are unlikely to bend to Democratic demands for more equity in the structure of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attack, a GOP source familiar with the matter told CNN.
The House was set to vote on creating the panel later in the day that, at this point, would include seven Republicans and five Democrats.
House Speaker John Boehner called that division fair on Thursday at a briefing with reporters, and said he had spoken with Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi about her party's concerns.
Boehner said of the conversation that he "made clear that this is a serious investigation, that we wanted to work together to get to the truth." FULL STORY.
