Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee that’s investigating Benghazi, said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has agreed to testify for a second time on the 2012 terror attack that left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens.
“The chairman asked me back in September to inquire as to whether Secretary Clinton would testify,” Mr. Cummings said, CNN reported. “She immediately said she would and that she wanted to come in December, but if December did not work, she would come in January. She said, ‘I’ll do it,’ period. The fact is, she was very clear. She did not hesitate for one second.”
Mrs. Clinton’s first Capitol Hill testimony about the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack didn’t go so well. At a January 2013 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, she engaged in a fiery exchange with Sen. Ron Johnson about the root of the attack, which the White House had painted as due to an impromptu protest that developed over a YouTube video that was critical of Muslims.
