Gowdy, White House in talks over classifying Benghazi report

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Thursday that one of the final hurdles to releasing a final report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi is an ongoing negotiation with the Obama administration over how much of the report should be classified.

Gowdy participated in the Senate Republican lunch Thursday, and a senator at the lunch said Gowdy noted the issue of classification, raising the prospect that some information in the final report may not become public.

"The fact that you have to go to the White House for a lot of this indicates big-time problems," Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told theWashington Examiner as he left the meeting.

Gowdy, who has long disavowed any intention to target the former secretary of state for political purposes, didn't accuse the administration of trying to protect her, according to another Senate Republican.

"There's always going to be a tug-of-war between what is classified and what is not," said the second lawmaker, who discussed the private meeting on condition of anonymity. "And he simply made it clear that they were going to try to do their best to get as much information out as they possibly could, and that that was a negotiated process that they were in the middle of."
