Dems likely to join Benghazi probe

House Democrats are "leaning toward" participating in the Republicans' special investigation into the deadly Benghazi attacks of 2012.
Party leaders have been mulling a boycott of the special committee over concerns that Republicans intend to use the investigation to attack the White House ahead of November's elections.
But a senior Democratic aide said Wednesday that, while the decision is not final, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) "is now leaning toward appointing a full complement of Members to the Select Committee on Benghazi."
