Pelosi: Two Benghazi family members asked us not to launch another investigation

Nancy Pelosi rejected the GOP ground rules for the select House committee to investigate Benghazi, so the Gowdy probe will start without any Democrats on the panel. Also, Pelosi claimed that two Benghazi family members contacted Dems and said the following:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the families of victims of the 2012 Benghazi, Libya, attack have reached out to lawmakers to ask them not to launch another probe into the incident.

“Two of their families have called us and said, ‘Please don’t take us down this path again,'” Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. “It’s really hard for them. It’s very sad.”

Rep. Louise Slaughter’s (D-N.Y.) office confirmed that a family member from the maternal side of Tyrone Woods’ family called on Thursday to express support for the congresswoman’s position on the issue, which is that another probe is not necessary. Woods was one of the CIA contractors killed in the attack. A Democratic aide said another family also has reached out to Democrats.

For the moment, let’s take Pelosi’s claim at face value, which is not an easy thing to do, because she’s… you know… Nancy Pelosi. If two family members not wanting to move forward with a continuing investigation is reason enough to call the whole thing off, what does Pelosi say to those family members who don’t buy what the administration’s told them (Tyrone Woods’ father and Sean Smith’s mother among them) and want Congress to keep investigating?
