Obama has “a duty to the American people to answer the basic questions surrounding the Benghazi attack,” Republican lawmaker says in letter.

WASHINGTON DC — Sen. Lindsey Graham Wednesday renewed his demand that President Obama provide details on what he knew, and when, about the Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya.

In a letter to Obama, Graham complains about what he views as a lack of cooperation from the administration in investigating the attack.

“While I am encouraged you may be finally ready to assist Congress in its investigations of the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, I remain concerned that over the past two months senators have written at least 13 letters requesting information from your Administration and they remain largely ignored,” Graham said in the letter, adding that Obama has “a duty to the American people to answer the basic questions surrounding the Benghazi attack.”

Graham, along with Sen. John McCain, has been one of Congress’s chief critics of Obama’s handling of the Benghazi situation, hammering both the White House and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice over it for months.
