House Republicans are seeking documents from the State Department that could show whether the administration even considered including Benghazi attack suspects as part of its “Rewards for Justice” program — after Fox News reported that the suspects were not listed in the terror tipline.
The program offers multimillion-dollar payouts for tips leading to wanted terrorists. But as Fox News reported last month, no Benghazi attack suspects are on that list. The department has not said why that is, or whether the listing was even considered.
The omission has caught the attention of dozens of lawmakers. Eighty-four members signed a letter last month asking Secretary of State John Kerry to explain why the “Rewards for Justice” program was not employed here.
