Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may be on her way to testifying before the House Oversight Committee on last year's deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, reports the Hill.
  
Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said there are “a number of steps” that the panel “will take first” before they call on the former secretary of state to testify. 
 
“We have a number of steps that we are taking to get full and complete discovery,” Issa said.
 
Issa said committee members wouldn’t “waste the former secretary’s time” by calling her before they did all they could to find all the relevant information that might shed light on her role before, during, and after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
 
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said that calling the former secretary of state to testify was a “definite maybe."
 
Clinton has appeared before several congressional committees to discuss the Benghazi attacks, but has yet to appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
 
One of the key players on the Oversight Committee is former prosecutor Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., who some see as the key to getting Clinton to testify. 
 
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., said Gowdy is likely “building a case” before calling Clinton before the committee.
 
“Gowdy's a good prosecutor, Gowdy's building a case, and when you are building a case, you don't show all your cards [at once],” Duncan said.
