Sen. Feinstein Wants Petraeus To Testify About Benghazi

She doesn't have the administration's back


The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says she will seek testimony from former CIA Director David Petraeus, who resigned Friday as CIA director after acknowledging an extramarital affair, about the September attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

"I have no doubt now that we will need to talk with David Petraeus and we will likely do that in closed session. But it will be done one way or another," Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told NBC News' Andrea Mitchell on Monday.
