Hillary Clinton will agree to one, but not to two appearances before the House Select Committee on Benghazi that’s chaired by South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy. That’s the word from Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, who has written to Rep. Gowdy saying the former secretary of state will testify on Capitol Hill this month about the 2012 attack in Benghazi as well as her controversial email practices while heading the Obama State Department.
Fox News says that Gowdy, who has insisted that Clinton and the State Department release more emails than have been provided to the committee so far, has not said whether he will accept the one-appearance offer.
“It remains unclear whether Clinton, a former first lady and U.S. senator from New York, will testify in a closed or open hearing before the special committee, formed to investigate the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks in which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed.”

Bolton said that, and why he began the interview with FNC’s Martha MacCallum by laughing at the news of Hillary’s ultimatum to Gowdy.
