Hillary Clinton gets emotional during Benghazi testimony

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign says the former secretary of state will testify Oct. 22 before the House committee investigating the deaths of four Americans in the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012.

The committee would not immediately confirm that date.

Campaign spokesman Nick Merrill says the Democratic candidate’s testimony will be public. Clinton’s lawyers and the Republican-led committee have been negotiating over the terms of her appearance.

The committee chairman, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, initially requested a private interview.

The investigation into the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three others has grown into a political fight over Clinton’s emails and private computer server. It’s likely to shadow Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
