Earlier this month, Kerry suggested lawmakers were harping on the administration's response and that it was time to move on.
"Let's get this done with, folks," Kerry told the House Foreign Affairs Committee in his first appearance before Congress since taking office. "I do not want to spend the next year coming up here talking about Benghazi."
Kerry maintained the administration has been more than forthcoming with Congress over Benghazi. Administration officials involved in the matter have testified eight times before Congress, briefed congressional leaders roughly 20 times and submitted about 25,000 pages of related documents.
"And that should be enough," Ventrell told reporters this week. "Congress has its own prerogatives, but we've had a very thorough, independent investigation, which we completed and [which was] transparent and shared. And there are many folks who are, in a political manner, trying to sort of use this for their own political means, or ends."
