On our consulate Libya among those expected to testify head of the CIA David Petraeus top Republican congressman Jason -- -- it's back home in Utah on member the house oversight and Government Reform Committee that had its own -- just about two weeks ago and welcome back here to.
America's Newsroom Catherine Herridge is reporting that.
The list of suspects.
After the raid on our consulate and then Gaza that -- our US ambassador.
It has now extended to several dozen people in many of them.
With ties into Egypt and Cairo.
What what more do you know about that -- We do know that there are dozens of suspects this flies right in the face of what the administration originally told us that there was just some mob and a and a video that got out of control I think.
What was very clear from the beginning of this attack that it was very uncoordinated there are terrorist activities that were active there had been -- In the months leading up to this and of course there are more than dozens.
Of suspects and and thinks that senator Lindsey Graham -- You know able to it now interview somebody there in in Tunisia and and you're beyond that you were just in Tripoli to -- -- you do not come back with a favorable review and you have alleged that.
The administration is stonewalling is that still the case now or -- there been -- little.
Given taken some information and questions you have.
Well hopefully now there were past the election the administration actually do the right thing because.
Coming up -- the election they did not I -- the first letter over to Secretary Clinton on September 20.
And they have the gall to actually go to their website and print out pages that you can find other Internet site.
And pretend that they were somehow complying with -- -- they were not terrorists there are so many documents that we need that are unclassified and classified that they have yet to provide to congress.
They need to do this they claim to be the most open and transparent administration ever but they're not doing the basics.
In sharing with congress this basic and -- -- based on what you have learned why would they wait until after the election.
Did the president's gonna have to decide which way he's gonna have -- because he's tried to have have it both ways any he has to decide which one he thinks is the truth.
And -- this you know this idea that sixty minutes released this videotape you know the day before the election.
It's just appalling what what is happening here the national media has been totally apps and on this except fox and a couple other news outlets and some some decent reporters -- been out there.
But the administration itself has got to come clean.
What happened before what happened during the attack and then they've got to explain how they misled the American people in the world.
About what we're really went down and and I.
Next Thursday is when the house holds its hearings I understand those are open to Republican on the senate side.
On the same day those hearings will be close but on the house side you'll have David H Petraeus -- I mention.
You'll have the Director of National Intelligence James clapper.
You'll have Matt Olson director of national counters and terrorism -- all three men.
Or -- by the way is the first one of administration suggested this is terrorism.
In the first place have you been able to inform ever advise your colleagues on this committee next week.
Based on what you have all -- heard so far and at what have you told them about what is key and important about learning now.
Well Mike Rogers.
Who's the chairman there of the intelligence committee he and I have met we have talked about this situation.
We have been able to on -- thanks to some whistle blowers brave whistle blowers who provided us some information.
I I it -- it scares me belted a shuttered if they.
What would happen if we didn't actually press the administration we'd still be misled at this point so we do have some core information that's now in the hands of the intelligence committee.
But I can -- with their license -- Gotti and and host of others there any oversight committee we are also going to pursue its the administration thinks that because the you know they won an election that this thing's gone away absolutely not we're gonna continue to press on us Jason -- -- thank you.
From salt lakes --
