Cruz requests to adopt Benghazi resolution/Boxer objects

Senator Cruz asked unanimous consent that the Rules Committee be discharged from further consideration of S.Res. 225, a resolution to express the sense of the Senate that Congress should establish a joint select committee to investigate and report on the attack on the United States diplomatic facility and American personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.

Senator Boxer objected and she and Senator Menendez spoke on the issue.
