Hillary Clinton Benghazi Testimony Shouldn't Contain 'Bombshells,' Bob Corker Says

Posted: Updated:

Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker said Tuesday on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" that he does not anticipate any "bombshells" in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's upcoming testimony on the attack in Benghazi, Libya last year that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Asked whether or not Corker believes Clinton has been honest in her accounting of the incident, Corker told Fox News that Clinton "hasn't said much publicly."

Corker continued, saying that "she has been forthcoming, I just don't think it's been extensive."

Some conservatives have alleged that Clinton used her recent health problems to avoid testifying, claiming that she contracted the "Benghazi flu."

After a slew of health scares led to the postponement of Clinton's testimony, the secretary of state is set to testify Wednesday on Capitol Hill.

Clinton resumed work after recovering from her ailments earlier this month. President Barack Obama has nominated Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to succeed Clinton. The former first lady announced earlier this month that she intends to take a step back from the political arena after she leaves her post.
