U.S. House panel subpoenas Kerry again over Benghazi

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speaks to the media at the State Department in WashingtonA U.S. Republican lawmaker on Thursday issued a second subpoena for Secretary of State John Kerry to testify before Congress this month about the 2012 attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi in which four Americans were killed. The State Department reacted angrily, saying it was the second time Kerry had been subpoenaed while on foreign travel, and noted the announcement had been made via Twitter. “This is not the way legitimate and responsible oversight is conducted,” said State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf. House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa had earlier issued a subpoena for Kerry to appear on May 21, but lifted that request after the State Department said it would conflict with Kerry’s travel schedule.
