Hillary Rodham Clinton has agreed to testify before the congressional committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi and Libya only once, and she will do so in two weeks. The New York Times,
The committee’s chairman, Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina, has said that he wants Mrs. Clinton to testify twice — once about the attacks and again about her use of a personal email account to conduct government business when she was secretary of state.
But Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, said there was “no basis, logic or precedent for such an unusual request.”
“The secretary is fully prepared to stay for the duration of the committee’s questions on the day she appears,” Mr. Kendall said, adding that Mrs. Clinton, who is running for president, was prepared to testify the week of May 18 or later.”
