LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "The State Department's response to the congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack has shown a disturbing disregard for the Department's legal obligations to Congress," Chairman Issa wrote in a letter to Secretary Kerry accompanying the subpoena.

"Compliance with a subpoena for documents is not a game. Because your Department is failing to meet its legal obligations, I am issuing a new subpoena to compel you to appear before the Committee to answer questions about your agency's response to the congressional investigation of the Benghazi attack."

The State Department sent a letter on April 17, 2014, which informed the Committee it was producing previously unreleased e-mails subject to prior requests and subpoenas. Email messages prove that White House official Ben Rhodes coordinated talking points for then-Ambassador Susan Rice which encouraged an emphasis that the attack was "rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy."

"The fact that these documents were withheld from Congress for more than 19 months is alarming," wrote Chairman Issa. "The Department is not entitled to delay responsive materials because it is embarrassing or implicates the roles and actions of senior officials."
