Sen. McCain threatens to delay confirmation of Yellen

According to The Wall Street Journal, Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will attempt to delay confirmation of Janet Yellen in an effort to push the Federal Reserve to seek out information from the Obama administration that could shed light on the Benghazi attacks in Libya.

“That’s the only way we get their attention,” Mr. McCain said in an interview Wednesday evening. “It’s the only way we get any response.” Mr. Graham’s office confirmed he would also hold up Ms. Yellen’s nomination to press for more information about the Benghazi attacks.
