Here’s the report from The Washington Examiner:
House investigators asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify next week about the September 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, but she declined citing a scheduling conflict.
â€œ[Clinton] was asked to appear at House Foreign Affairs next week, and we have written back to the Chairman to say that sheâ€™ll be on travel next week,â€ State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters yesterday. â€œShe has a commitment with the Secretary of Defense to the AUSMIN Ministerial.â€ Per AFP, â€œAUSMIN is the highest level forum for Australia and US consultation on foreign policy, defense and strategic issues.â€ The United States is reportedly concerned about Australiaâ€™s plan to cut their defense spending.
