Politico | Mike Morell to testify instead of David Petraeus on Benghazi





The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus came less than a week before he  was scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Sept.  11 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

A spokesman for the committee said acting CIA Director Mike  Morell would testify Thursday in place of Petraeus, who resigned Friday after  admitting to an extramarital affair.

Petraeus was among a host of intelligence officials who were on tap to appear  at the closed hearing, including James Clapper, the director of national  intelligence, and Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism  Center. The hearing is the second to be held by the Senate panel on the attacks  that killed Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three  diplomatic aides.
