Rep. Darrell Issa says the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee can “certainly” call back former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify on Benghazi.
“We can certainly have Mrs. Clinton back; our view is that we need to get to the facts,” Issa (R-Calif.) told Fox News in a clip that aired Wednesday.
As chairman of the Oversight Committee, Issa’s comments follow a Republican staff report released Monday that criticized the State Department’s investigation of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, calling it deeply flawed. The co-chairs of that investigation are expected to testify on Thursday before the Oversight Committee’s hearing on Benghazi.
Clinton testified before the House Foreign Affairs and Senate Foreign Relations committees in January. Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy will be a witness Wednesday in the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s hearing on Benghazi.
