Petraeus to testify on Benghazi
Posted by Staff
The Hill reports:

Former CIA Director David Petraeus will voluntarily testify before congressional panels investigating the September terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday.

The precise timing of Petraeus's visit to Capitol Hill hasn't been finalized, Feinstein said, though his appearance could be as early as Friday.

Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman, said Petraeus would be testifying about the terrorist attack and not the affair that led to his shocking resignation last week.

"He is very willing and interested in talking," Feinstein told reporters, adding she had not personally spoken to Petraeus since the scandal broke last week.

Lawmakers have been clamoring for the testimony from Petraeus, who resigned after an FBI investigation revealed he was involved in an affair with his his biographer. He had been set to testify this week about the attack before his resignation, when he was replaced by acting CIA Director Mike Morell. Facebook Fark Furl
