WASHINGTON - US Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday threatened to block votes on President Barack Obama's nominees for CIA director and defense secretary until the administration gives more information about the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Graham and other Republican lawmakers have questioned Obama's response to the Sept. 11, 2012, incident in which the US ambassador and three other Americans were killed.

On CBS's "Face the Nation," Graham said he would invoke senatorial privilege to put a hold on votes on the nominee for CIA director, John Brennan, and on defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel until the White House gives more information.
