The Speaker deferred to his appointed chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who has said he has questions for Clinton about the terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, in 2012.

Boehner, during a "Sunday Morning Futures" interview that aired Sunday on Fox News, said there is “no timeline” for the committee to report its findings and that it would take time to find office space, hire staff and review the work of four other House committees. Boehner decided early this month to form the panel, and the House voted along party lines last week to make it official.

While the Speaker has appointed all seven Republican members, Democrats haven’t decided whether they will participate in the panel. They have criticized it as politically motivated and unnecessary, and some suspect it is designed to tarnish Clinton ahead of a possible presidential run in 2016.
