Former CIA Director David Petraeus will testify Friday before the House Intelligence Committee about the September attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, the committee announced Wednesday.
Petraeus had been scheduled to testify before Congress this week, but his testimony was in question after he resigned last week as CIA director over an extramarital affair.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California and chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Tuesday that she hoped Petraeus would also address her panel as early as Friday.
The September 11 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. Some Republicans have criticized the administration's response to the attack and have speculated that the timing of Petraeus' departure may have been linked to the congressional inquiry.
