(CNN) —  

Hillary Clinton has agreed to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi later this month, according to a letter from her attorney to the panel’s chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina.

Gowdy asked Clinton, the former Secretary of State and now presidential candidate, testify before the committee twice – once on her private email server and once on the 2012 attacks in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

But David Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer, said Clinton would testify once on both topics, on a day designated by the committee during the week of May 18th or later.
