CIA director John Brennan recently wrote a three-page letter to the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) saying that the CIA would provide “relevant information” to enable meetings between CIA-affiliated personnel in Benghazi and House oversight committees.

During the next two weeks, various House committees will hold hearings about the Benghazi terrorist attack as Republicans continue to look for evidence of a White House conspiracy.

In his letter, Brennan denied that any CIA officers had been told not to speak to Congress about the Benghazi attack, notes The Weekly Standard.

“To the best of my knowledge after inquiry, I am unaware of any officer who has been threatened with reprisals. Nor would I tolerate such behavior. To retaliate or threaten retaliation would be a violation of law," wrote Brennan.

Brennan’s letter mentioned the possibility of meetings with Benghazi survivors.

“Finally, you asked that CIA provide a list of all officers in Libya on 11 September 2012 and arrange for the committee to speak to any of those officers regardless of their current location. Information identifying those officers is classified. We will work with the Committee to provide the relevant information via classified channels," wrote Brenann.

Fox News has pressed numerous Benghazi conspiracy theories, even when some of its own guests have denied the unproven claims, reports MediaMatters.org (video below).
