White House press secretary Jay Carney indicated the administration may not cooperate with the new House select committee investigating the unanswered questions surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, even refusing to answer a direct question about it.
Carney said there were seven different investigations with 13 hearings probing Benghazi.
“We have always cooperated with legitimate oversight,” Carney told reporters in what appeared to be a shot at the latest investigation.
“All of the seven separate investigations, all of the committees that have participated in this investigations, all of the administration personnel,” he added.
Carney continued by saying, “If you look at what some Republicans say, it certainly cast doubt on the legitimacy.”
“It’s a problem when you have so many conspiracy theories knocked down by the facts and yet the adherents to those theories only become more convinced that the facts are what they so clearly are. That information, which is fed by the Republican party in this case, reconfirms for those who want to believe in conspiracy theories that don’t have any factual basis but tell them they’re true anyway, by media outlets that pound that message in to those who are predisposed to believe it.”
Carney took similar question several times about whether the administration would cooperate.
He was asked if the administration considered the new committee legitimate, and said he declined to speculate. ABC’s Jonathan Karl later asked directly if the administration would cooperate, to which Carney declined to give a yes or no answer.
“What I’m not going to do is speculate about what might come and how it’s going to play out,” Carney said after making a comment that elicited laughter from the White House press corps. “What I will remind you of is our cooperation of our history on this and many others.”

He went on to say, “We’re going to focus on where we can move forward for the American people.”
