U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Capitol Hill January 23, 2013 in Washington, DC.

On Thursday, Hillary Clinton will testify before the Select Committee of Benghazi to defend her actions on September 11, 2012.

In 2012, the infamous attack on Benghazi, Libya left four Americans dead, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

On Thursday at 10 a.m. eastern, Hillary Clinton will testify before the Select Committee of Benghazi to defend her actions on September 11, 2012.

Chairman of the Committee, Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy, is said to be under pressure to provide evidence of a true scandal in relation to the attacks. On the other hand, Clinton will also be pressured to provide statements that will justify her actions so that her chance of being elected president is not compromised.

Do you think Clinton’s responses could harm her chances of being elected president? Will she take responsibility for her actions?
