Will Benghazi hearings start soon?

A Republican lawmaker says he wants a newly formed committee that is investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks to start holding hearings during the August recess.

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.) tells The Hill that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the chairman of the Select panel, is busy hiring staffers for the high-profile panel.

"I hope that they start holding hearings even if we're not here in August," he said. It remains unclear, however, if that will happen.

Asked if former secretary of State Hillary Clinton should testify on the attacks that left four Americans dead, Huizenga said the potential 2016 Democratic presidential contender still has questions to answer.
