Rep. Trey Gowdy declares his Select Committee on Benghazi is breaking "an immense amount of new ground" and will interview four more Obama administration officials over the next week.

In a statement Thursday, the South Carolina lawmaker, who chairs the committee, also staunchly defends the panel's work, vowing its "value and fairness."

"Our committee continues to break an immense amount of new ground as we compile the most comprehensive accounting of what happened before, during and after the terrorist attacks in Benghazi," Gowdy states.

"The American people and the families of the victims deserve the truth, and I'm confident that the value and fairness of our investigation will be abundantly clear to everyone when they see the report for themselves."

The panel will have a closed-door interview Thursday with Gentry Smith, a former official within the State Department's bureau of diplomatic security, according to a list Gowdy released.

Next week, an unidentified witness "from the national security community" will be questioned, along with Adm. James Winnefeld Jr., the former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Susan Curley, an official in the State Department's office of management policy, rightsizing and innovation.

Curley will be the 79th person to testify before the 2-year-old panel, The Hill reports.

Democratic committee members have charged the panel was created primarily to attack former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
