Ending months of speculation, Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee cleared Hillary Clinton of responsibility in the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, reports CBS News.

The committee placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Obama administration in the roughly 800-page report, which was broken into five parts, writes the news outlet. The report also describes the attack, government communications about the attacks, and events leading up to the attacks in Benghazi.

The panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, and other Republicans accuse the Obama administration of stonewalling important documents and witnesses. Democrats say the panel’s primary goal is to undermine Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential bid.

Clinton was secretary of state during the attacks, which killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. She testified before the congressional panel last October in marathon 11-hour hearing.

“There are only three assets that ever made it to Benghazi: two unarmed drones and the team from Tripoli that deployed themselves,” Gowdy said at a press conference Tuesday morning on Capitol Hill. “Washington had access to real-time information, but that real-time information did not inform and instruct the decisions made in Washington.”

After the report was released, Clinton said: “I think it’s pretty clear it’s time to move on,” she said Tuesday at a campaign event in Denver.
