Benghazi committee date confusion

25 Jul, 2015

Clinton’s campaign spokesman says she will testify publicly before a House select committee on October 22, 2015, about her role in the 2012 Benghazi attack, which resulted in the death of four Americans. However a spokesperson for the committee says the timing is not set because of ongoing negotiations with Clinton’s lawyer over ground rules. Clinton’s attorney:

On the grounds of simple fairness and in order to make appropriate preparation possible, the scope of the questioning [should] be consistent with the scope set forth in the resolution establishing the Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.

The Committee intends to diss Clinton’s’ emails in relation to the attack:

The Committee will not, now or ever, accept artificial limitations on its congressionally-directed jurisdiction. Once there is an agreement on the date and a better understanding of how, if at all, Secretary Clinton’s lawyer’s latest writing differs from previous ones, the Committee will announce said hearing date.
