“The secretary has committed to testifying before our committee … on the Accountability Review Board’s report, which is expected to be concluded by early to mid-December,” said Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chairwoman of the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs.

The State Department launched an independent Accountability Review Board to review the circumstances surrounding the Benghazi attack, which killed four Americans including U.S. Ambassador to Lybia Christopher Stevens.
