Washington - The House panel investigating the deadly 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, says longtime Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal will testify in closed session on June 16.

The committee issued a statement announcing that Blumenthal will give a deposition to the committee.

When Hillary Rodham Clinton served as secretary of state, Blumenthal regularly sent advice and near-monthly missives about Libya to Clinton's personal email account that she used as a government employee.
