U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham was meeting with House leaders Thursday to urge them to subpoena survivors of the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi last year that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

House Republicans are in the majority, so they have the power to subpoena the White House, unlike Senate Republicans, The Hill newspaper reports.

“I’m going to meet with the House leadership . . . hoping they will take up the Benghazi cause,” Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News.

“The one thing Republicans can do is use the leverage they have in the House to subpoena these survivors, so we’ll find out what happened that night. I guarantee you there are people wanting to talk but are afraid to talk, and a subpoena would make a difference.”

Reports have emerged that the White House is keeping several of those wounded in the attack in Libya from meeting with Congress. That has sparked charges that the Obama administration is engaged in a cover-up.

“I believe the attitude of the House leadership is changing when it comes to Benghazi,” Graham said. “They’re going to be more aggressive. . . . The fact that we haven’t heard from the people who were there on the ground for six months should make every American worried about what this administration is covering up.”
