House Republicans have set up a new website focused on the Benghazi attack and the circumstances surrounding it that promises to bring the facts about the deadly assault “straight to the American people.”

In a release announcing the website, Speaker John Boehner's office says “House Republicans are leading the fight for answers and for justice” on the deadly terrorist assault that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

“To date, no one has been held accountable,” the release states. “The families of the fallen – and the American people – deserve to know the truth. They deserve justice.”

The move comes after Fox News' Bill O'Reilly repeatedly asked President Obama questions about Benghazi during a pre-Super Bowl interview on Sunday.

The website is a virtual repository of Benghazi-related documents.

It contains unclassified information and findings from House Republicans' investigation into the matter, including a 43-page interim report on five House committees' findings. It also provides declassified transcripts of administration briefings on the assault, committee hearing transcripts, copies of internal administration emails on the topic, as well as transcripts of interviews and depositions of administration officials.

“After being stonewalled, House committees began a serious, exhaustive and deliberate investigation into what led up to this tragic event, what transpired, and why the White House refused and still refuses – to tell the whole truth," Boehner's office said in the release.
