ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton arrives on Capitol Hill where she will face a panel investigating the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Clinton and many of her fellow Democrats have seized on the comments in recent weeks by Republican lawmakers as evidence that the goal of the Benghazi committee in the U.S. House of Representatives was to hurt her front-runner status in the campaign for the November 2016 election. Clinton's appearance follows months of unflattering reports about her use of a private home email server for her State Department work. The reports emerged in part because of the Benghazi committee's demand last year to see Clinton's official records. The committee's five Democrats, who may discuss abandoning the inquiry after Clinton's appearance, say they think there is little left to unearth on Benghazi that more than half a dozen previous inquiries did not find. "I'm looking forward to answering questions about the real things when I'm there," Clinton said pointedly in a television interview earlier this month. She voiced disgust at what she said were Republican admissions that "it's a political partisan committee for the sole purpose of going after me."
