"Fox News has gone silent on Benghazi amid reports that the House Intelligence Committee concluded that there was no intentional wrongdoing in the Obama administration's response to the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported on August 1 that the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee voted to declassify findings from its investigation into the 2012 attacks on U.S diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, and "concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack," according to committee member Rep.

Dutch Ruppersberger (D-CA) said in a statement laying out the committee's findings.* Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (TYT University), Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies) and Cara Santa Maria (Talk Nerdy Podcast) break it down.
