Hillary Clinton will testify about Benghazi on January 22

Finally!

A date has been set for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify about the Benghazi attacks of Sept. 11, 2012.

According to the Associated Press, Clinton will appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Jan. 22, as told to MSNBC by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) on Tuesday. There has been no official word from the committee yet.

Corker, who is the committee’s lead Republican, said Clinton was “anxious” to testify, something he learned from speaking to her chief of staff.

“I think they feel she’s going to be healthy enough to come in that day,” he said, as reported by POLITICO. “If that were to occur, and again this is Sen. [Robert] Menendez’s decision, we could move very quickly, maybe even that afternoon, to Sen. [John] Kerry’s [nomination] hearings.”

The 22 is the day after President Obama’s second inauguration and the first day the Senate returns to Washington after their two-week break, AP reports.

Clinton returned to work on Monday, following a series of medical issues that kept her from testifying at the original hearing on Benghazi in December. After becoming dehydrated from the stomach flu, she fainted an suffered a concussion. She was also recently hospitalized for a blood clot.

The Secretary of State’s oddly timed illness raised some eyebrows and led former Rep. Allen West to label her sickness “the Benghazi flu.”

Benghazi flu or not, it seems like Americans will finally get some answers about the attacks that left four dead, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    Of all days to have a colonoscopy scheduled! I’m gonna miss all the fun. I’ve been looking forward to hearing the lies, distortions and hypocrisy she’s going to throw around. And what does she care – she’s outta there, anyway. Pitiful.

    pffft. What do you think she’s gonna say…nothing.

    Hillary Clinton is a joke, the whole lot of them answer to no one…

    Her appearance the day after the coronation won’t be topic of nex for the LSM. The LSM will still be fawning over and praising the coronation. Camel Thighs will have selective amnesia due to her Benghazi Blues.
