Rep. Jason Chaffetz is sticking to his stance that impeachment of President Barack Obama over his handling of the Benghazi attack should not be ruled out.

"Look, it's not something I'm seeking," the Utah Republican told CNN.

"It's not the endgame. It's not what we're playing for. I was simply asked, 'Is that within the realm of possibilities?' and I would say 'yes.' I'm not willing to take that off the table."

Chaffetz first mentioned impeachment as a possibility in an interview with The Salt Lake Tribune, published Monday.

"We want truth," Chaffetz told CNN. "We want to have the president do what he has said he would always do, and that is, be open and transparent. Thus far, the White House has not done that."

Chaffetz, a member of the House Oversight Committee, said he found testimony from three State Department officials about Benghazi compelling last week.

"We heard from three very credible witnesses with more than 70 years of public service [between them] saying that what happened on the ground versus what the White House would lead us to believe were two totally different things," he said.
