The long-awaited appearance of Hillary Clinton before the House Benghazi! Committee occurs today, in what many are expecting to be a “marathon” session beginning at 10:00 AM EDT. Since this could be a pivotal political event for the cycle, and because following it isn’t terribly compatible with blogging about other topics, we’ve decided to offer occasional special reports throughout the day from Martin Longman and (assuming the hearing goes well past lunch-time) Nancy LeTourneau. Stay tuned.
