WASHINGTON — A Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says it makes no sense to participate in the select committee that Republicans want to create to investigate the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California says he’d recommend that Democratic leaders not appoint any Democrats to the committee that Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur) is moving to set up.

Schiff tells “Fox News Sunday” that there have been multiple investigations into Benghazi and that the new committee is “a colossal waste of time.”

Schiff calls the committee “a tremendous red herring” and a waste of money and believes Boehner is bowing to the GOP’s far-right faction.

Boehner says U.S. officials misled the public after the assault that killed the ambassador and three other Americans.
