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 and the coke bottle glasses???
On twitter they’re calling it “tear syncing”
Hey, it’s a Republicrat love fest!
Hey, CC, what’s a good twitter link to watch?
She looks and sounds bored to death.
The surgeon who did her face sure had his work cut out for him.
Michelle Malkin is good.
She is filibustering..
it’s financial problem , she asking for more money..BS
She learned from the best.
Rubio has not done a very good job. Just some more softballs for Hillary to hit out of the park. He also joined in the love fest for the tremendous job Hillary has done.
Rubio was a disappointment! The Fix is on!
I’m going to throw up in my mouth.......what a love fest for Hillary. This country is run by idiots and we can’t do a thing about it
This has nothing to do with what Boxer did or any so-called humanitarian outreach for ME women.
Cut to the chase!
What did you know and when did you know it?
I hope Marco gets a shot at this evil Beaoch.Its a friggin love fest so far!
They knew security in Benghazi was absent for months that the entire area was blowing up WTF!!
Rubio SUCKED. Give me Chaffetz and Gowdy any day! They’d tear her @ss up.
So far, Pubs are sorely lacking in balls. Not one tough question yet.
No hard questions from any Senator for the ex Senator.
It is only about the money for her.
Nothing, but nothing will come of this....not Rubio (real tough he was sarcasm ....Chaffetz (he has the guts)....or anyone else will overcome what has been set in motion.
America is going the way of Rome.....has gone the way of Rome.
Bread & circus is the order of the day
Do you think anyone is bothering, will bother to watch this?....Honey Boo Boo has their attention, my friend.
......Either get on board....get out of the way.....or resist.
