Cantor tells Dems to 'do the right thing'

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) late Monday called on Democrats to “do the right thing” and join the select committee to investigate the Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack.

Cantor confirmed for Fox News's "On the Record" that the House will vote this week on the formation of the select committee.

"There will be a vote this week to form this committee going forward. And I know that Chairman Gowdy, a terrific and serious legislator, is going to it do a great job in leading this effort," Cantor said, referring to Trey Gowdy, who was tapped to head the committee.

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Monday that he would urge members of his caucus to vote against the formation of the committee.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has also suggested Democrats should boycott the committee.
