Petraeus will be required to testify about the attack in Benghazi


Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-SC, said in a Friday interview that Gen. David Petraeus will be required to testify about the attack in Benghazi if he doesn’t offer to voluntarily.

“I hope we don’t have to subpoena a four-star general and the former CIA director, I hope he would come voluntarily, but if he won’t he will be subpoenaed and none of what has happened today is a defense to a subpoena.”

Petraeus was expected to testify Thursday at closed congressional hearings before the House and Senate intelligence committees, until it was announced that CIA Director Michael Morell would take his place.

“There’s no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus,” Gowdy said. “While he might not be around next week because he’s got personal matters, the week after that and the week after that, this excuse will run stale.”
