WASHINGTON (AP) - Former CIA Director David Petraeus is preparing to field questions from lawmakers today about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, his appearance on Capitol Hill coming one week after he resigned over an extramarital affair.
Petraeus is under investigation by the agency for possible wrongdoing, though that's not the subject of today's closed-door hearings.
The September attack in Benghazi, which killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, created a political firestorm, with Republicans claiming that the White House misled the public on what led to the violence.
Lawmakers spent hours Thursday interviewing top intelligence and national security officials in trying to determine what the intelligence community knew before, during and after the Benghazi attack.
