Washington, D.C. — Retired Army Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman released the following statement: “I agree with Chairman Gowdy. If some witnesses refer the committee to other witnesses, the responsible thing to do is interview them. The committee has an obligation to the American people to determine what can and cannot be substantiated, so if an individual makes public allegations about Benghazi, the committee should interview that person.”

Added Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (SC-04), “The committee is very grateful to General Chipman for going above and beyond his initial commitment to us. With the Army's former Judge Advocate General under President Obama helping lead our investigation, we have conducted a serious and thorough search for the truth and nothing but the truth. General Chipman’s contributions to the report and recommendations the committee will soon release have been invaluable.”
