House votes to create new Benghazi investigation

The House has voted to establish a new investigation of the deadly assault in Benghazi, Libya, with Republicans vowing to dig deeper in a search for truth.

Democrats say the election-year inquiry is actually a political ploy to raise campaign cash and motivate GOP voters, and they're weighing a boycott.

The vote Thursday was 232-186.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission.

Republicans accuse the Obama administration of misleading the American people about the nature of the attack during a presidential campaign and stonewalling multiple congressional inquiries.
