He criticize fellow lawmakers who say not enough has been done to investigate that scam.
We have fully -- at this issue.
We have held hearing after hear we have on both sides had the opportunity.
To have our questions answered our focus now.

Former prosecutor former judge.
Good to have you -- this congressman.
Could talk to you lose the first IE if you heard senator Menendez.
Your reaction to what he had to say today.
Well obviously they don't want all of the evidence.
When I was a judge we always wanted in the courtroom all of the evidence before -- a decision.
So what the White House has done is take the 67 hours.
Of the most important emails.
And hidden those from the American public and they give us emails that really don't say a whole lot kind of reminds me of bill Nixon days when.
Richard Nixon hit on his tape the most.
Important thirty seconds and so we want to see -- 67 hours of emails that went back and forth from everybody CIA State Department and the White House.
If this is this is precisely what going back through Watergate era.
John Ehrlichman and Robert home -- -- A called a a modified limited hang out.
It is a propaganda it is a public relations.
Maneuver no more than that -- likely.
-- likely one assumes to fail.
There's so there are a lot of skeletons dancing in this administration right now.
It's at times -- Hard to imagine that they've gotten this far -- -- this clumsy handling of issues so import.
Well no question.
Out -- the lots of bungling and been Ghazi and we even had the current.
Secretary of state saying I don't wanna come down here testify all year about being Gaza.
Well no kidding they don't want us to know exactly what's taken place so you know I'm chairman of the terrorism subcommittee.
I think you'd be good with time there for us to bring in General Petraeus.
And see what he has to say.
About all of these emails in the missing emails.
In the final report that we got from the White House well.
And Thomas Pickering Michael Mullen now on the accountability a review board didn't talk to the secretary of state.
This is a monumental.
Lapse of judgment -- is it best.
And it worse.
-- massive cover up on the part of this administration.
Do you have the power to get to the true.
Because -- yeah -- -- it it's clear it seems to me at least that leaving that 67 hour gap vision.
Suggests there's no contrition and there's every effort going to be made.
To hang on to is much of the incriminating.
Emails is they possess.
We do have the power in fact not just my subcommittee but the full foreign affairs committee the Judiciary Committee homeland security committee all of us are working on this issue.
We -- going to find out exactly what happened in spite.
Of the stonewalling by the administration -- we know the administration did clean up was the word al-Qaeda.
They don't want us using that phrase and they cleaned that out of the emails but other than that we want to get the rest of the email.
We're over time here congressman ever want to ask you something we've just received information from my own -- her room.
One of our senior producers in Washington.
That their congressman John Carter says there is an agreement in principle now and the house -- representatives.
On immigration legislation.
I can you and -- on that.
Well your information is this correct -- I know that there was an agreement made about those that had been working in the house.
-- a bipartisan basis for several years to a structure.
Of how to move forward with legislation.
That's really all I know a judge Carter is one of those individuals working on this and so there is there is progress the house has to take the lead.
We need to move forward Republicans especially need to lead on this issue we can we can solve these numerous issues.
And this development comes as we learn that these so called game debate both the house and the senate averaging -- but the senate ending debate.
As apparently reached an impasse on the issue.
Illegal immigrants under or whatever does result whatever legislation results.
Affordable care of benefits.
