Over the weekend, the State Department announced that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would not be able to testify before Congress Thursday about Benghazi after suffering a concussion in a recent fall.
Two senior State Department officials will testify in her place. The State Department is expected to release an independent report, ordered by Clinton, sometime today about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed four Americans.
On America’s Newsroom, Martha MacCallum spoke with Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) about the situation. She brought up the fact that U.N. Amb. Susan Rice addressed the attacks in the days after, not Clinton. Now it’s unclear whether Clinton will ever testify before Congress, since she’s stepping down next month.
Isakson, however, believes lawmakers will still get to hear directly from Clinton before she leaves her post.
“I think the administration realizes we will never have closure on the facts in this case without the secretary’s testimony. I’ve never seen her shy away from a fight or from any questions, and I’m sure she will (testify) when she recovers,” said Isakson.
