Clinton agrees to testify once, but not twice, on Benghazi attack

Hillary Clinton was summoned to testify twice before the Benghazi special committee a few weeks ago in regards to her emails and handling of the Benghazi tragedy. She has agreed to testify, but refuses to make a double appearance like originally called.

Former secretary of State Hillary Clinton agreed Monday to testify once, but not twice, before the special House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate inBenghazi, Libya.

Clinton attorney David Kendall, in a letter to the committee released by the Democrats, said Clinton could appear the week of May 18, as scheduled. But he rejected the committee’s request that Clinton testify at the first hearing about her email records and at a separate hearing later about events surrounding the Benghazi attacks.

Kendall said the committee should cover both topics the same day.

I would do the same. I mean come on, it’s summer.

The members of the special committee want the email mess cleared up so they have all relevant information to ask about Benghazi. Chairman of the committee, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), says the members are not willing to question Clinton until they have all emails and documents relating to the matter.

Chairman Gowdy should take yes for an answer and finally schedule the hearing,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the Benghazi committee’s top Democrat, said in a statement. “Dragging out this process further into the presidential election season sacrifices any chance that the American people will see it as serious or legitimate.”

One interview or two interviews…what difference does it make?
