Rep. Jason Chaffetz says House Speaker John Boehner has urged him to be judicious in pursuing President Barack Obama on the Benghazi issue.

The Utah Republican, who has said Obama may face impeachment over his handling of the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on a U.S. compound in Libya, is ready to issue subpoenas and schedule more hearings, he tells National Review Online.

"[The Obama administration] purposefully and willfully misled the American people, and that’s unacceptable," he said.

"It’s part of a pattern of deception . . . They’ve released 100 emails, but there are thousands of documents that we still need to see. The truth gets colder as time goes on, so we need to stay vigilant."

As for Boehner, Chaffetz said "the speaker has more patience than I do."

"He has told me to be patient, that the truth will eventually surface. But I’m not a patient person, and if this administration makes us do this the hard way, that’s what we’ll do," the congressman added.

"The White House likes to say that our questions are a political sideshow, but it seems like it was their politics that caused a lot of the problems."
