Democrats are undecided about how to proceed with the new House select committee on Benghazi.
"The fact is, that this is a stunt. This is a political stunt. We've been there, done that. Why are we doing this again?" asked House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said.
She said options for Democrats range from full participation to boycotting the committee altogether.
The Republican-led House authorized the special panel this week. Republicans accuse the Obama administration of obstructing the investigations and withholding important information.
They insist a special panel is necessary to get to the bottom of the 2012 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
