Senate hearing: 9:00a.m. EST. House hearing: 2:00 p.m. EST
Watch live here. Also on C-SPAN 3.
In her first testimony since the Benghazi attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will participate in a full day of hearings Wednesday about U.S. diplomatic security and the American mission in Libya.
Sec. Clinton will appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the morning followed by an afternoon testimony to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. In December, the State Department's highest ranking foreign service officers, William Burns and Thomas Nides, testified before Congressional lawmakers in the Secretary's place. They discussed a new report by an independent panel assessing the Benghazi attack.
Deputy Sec. Nides put several recommendations from a report on the attack into effect before the end of 2012. Implementing the rest, Nides said, will be underway by the time the next Secretary of State takes office. Three State Department officials have resigned since the report was released.
The two officials were substituting for Secretary Clinton, who was recovering from a concussion she suffered after fainting due to dehydration from a stomach virus.
Four Americans were killed in that attack, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Congress is investigating whether the State Department denied a request for extra security at that outpost earlier in the year and what actions were taken in the moments after the attack began.
Hillary will reveal NOTHING!
Benghazi was designed to allow the kidnapped ambassador to be traded for the blind sheik.
The ex-CIA security wasn’t supposed to be there shooting at the would be kidnappers.
As long as Cross border authority is not mentioned this will be a victory for Hillary and Obama.
And it wont be.
Can’t miss her swan song.
Bingo, we have a Tyrant
I CAN’T RECALL
Is it too early for the drinking game with, “I can’t recall.”??
Let’s all take a shot of OJ every time she says it. At least we’ll be healthy as she lies.....
I’ll drink to that....every time she says I dont recall we do a beer..... fresh keg 3 ft to the left
The opening curtain of the 2016 Dem primary season..
Menendez is such a hack...
Menedez need to shut up and get to the questions!!!
Well, there she is... bobbing her head as Bob Menendez, the whoremonger, runs on and on and on. Both had “the goat treatments,” surely. He got his in the Dominican Republic.
Menendez have a boy under the desk ?
Do you think anyone will have the guts to ask her why she lied to the American people about the “offensive You Tube video” when it was known from the start that this was a well planned terrorist attack?
Will she also testify before the House? That is where the hard questions would be asked.
Kinda early here on the west coast for a dog and pony show.
