The House Intelligence Committee, a rare island of bipartisanship in recent years, may soon become a more confrontational arena with the retirement of its chairman, Rep. Mike Rogers.This report by Rogers' committee was the latest debunking of the Benghazi issue, but it did little to convince conservative Republicans.By working together, Rogers and Ruppersberger managed to pass an intelligence authorization bill in 2011, the first such legislation in six years, and to do so every year since.Boehner's decision to pick Nunes over other Republicans who wanted the job surprised some members, given that the speaker had chosen Rogers and defended him from right-wing criticism. A Nunes spokesman said the new chairman intends to consult closely with Democrats. He said Nunes hadn't taken a position on the Benghazi report because the committee had to operate "one chairman at a time". Rogers has often criticized President Barack Obama on foreign policy issues, but he has generally backed the intelligence community.
