WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner will schedule a vote to create a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attack.

Boehner says the Obama administration misled the American people after the deadly attack in 2012. And he says emails released this week show that it withheld documents from congressional investigators.

He asks, “What else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?”

A senior Republican aide says the speaker may choose Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina to chair the select committee.

The aide isn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity.
