Pelosi Names Five Democrats to Serve on Benghazi Committee

Nancy Pelosi has officially chosen five House Democrats to serve on the House select committee on Benghazi, alongside the seven Republicans already serving. This comes on the heels of a report that after hesitation on the matter, the Democrats would fully participate in the Benghazi hearings to make it a fairer process.
A press release from Pelosi’s office lists the five Democrats who will participate: Elijah CummingsAdam SmithAdam SchiffLinda Sanchez, and Tammy Duckworth.
These Democrats will join the committee process headed by Republican Trey Gowdy, a decisive turnaround after rumblings from Democratic leaders that they should boycott the Benghazi hearings out of protest that the Republicans want to keep making an issue out of it.
