“This is a non-story,” CNN’s senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said in November about Benghazi. “[It] was a tragedy. It’s not a scandal. Republicans are going to investigate this until the end of the Obama administration. They will find nothing, because there’s nothing to be found there.”

The next month, National Security Adviser Susan Rice took a similar position in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes”: “I don’t have time to think about a false controversy.”

But is it really a “non-story” that only Republicans want to continue to investigate? Far from it.

According to a recent Fox News survey, 66 percent of respondents think Congress should continue to investigate Benghazi, and 50 percent of Democrats want investigations to continue.

The question read: “Should Congress continue to investigate the Obama administration's handling of the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the deaths of four Americans?”

House Republicans are doing their part to continue fighting for answers and justice. The House Select Committee on Intelligence investigation is ongoing, and more hearings may be coming, according to Fox News.
