Clinton Agrees to Testify Just Once About Benghazi and Emails

Hillary Clinton has agreed to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi but is refusing the panel’s request that she make two appearances, The Hill reported.

The committee’s chairman, Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, issued a summons to the former secretary of state last month. He demanded that she provide testimony the week of May 18 about her use of a private email server while heading the State Department, and appear before the committee again in June to answer questions about her role in the 2012 attack in Libya.

In response to the summons, Clinton's attorney David Kendall sent a letter to Gowdy on Monday, explaining:

“Respectfully, there is 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.”

Kendall suggested there is no reason for Clinton to testify about her emails. He told Gowdy that the committee “can be assured that the State Department has a complete set” of the electronic messages that “were in Secretary Clinton’s possession related or potentially related to her work as secretary of state.”

The attorney said his client “remains ready to address whatever additional questions the committee may have.”
