Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify before Congress in December about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, the chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said Thursday.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) announced during her committee’s hearing on Benghazi that Clinton would testify in early- to mid-December about the State Department’s own Libya review findings. Clinton will speak before the House and Senate foreign affairs committees, Ros-Lehtinen said.
The hearings will be open, Fox News reported.
Clinton had previously been asked to testify during Thursday’s House committee hearing but said she would be traveling abroad.
