  • Feinstein: Petraeus to testify on Benghazi attacks

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee says former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify to Congress about the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Wednesday that Petraeus, who resigned from the CIA post on Friday because of an extra-marital affair, indicated his willingness to testify.

    "He is very willing and interested in talking to the committee," she said. No date for his testimony has been set.

    Feinstein has been among those in Congress who have complained that lawmakers should have been notified about an FBI investigation that led to the disclosure of Petraeus' affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

    But she said that Petraeus' testimony to her committee will be limited to the Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others. Petraeus was CIA director at the time of the attacks and visited Libya afterward.

  • Legislature to feature new faces

    SANTA FE. (AP) — Nearly a third of the 112 members of Legislature will be new to the House and Senate when lawmakers convene in January, and that could end up helping Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and her push to end driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.
    There will be at least 15 new senators and 20 or 21 new House members — depending on a recount in one race — when lawmakers meet for next year’s 60-day session.
    In the Senate, the election appears to have added more supporters of the license proposal that has been a centerpiece of the governor’s legislative agenda.
    Democratic leaders and the governor say they can put aside their election year differences, but others aren’t so certain. Some of the harshest campaign attacks against Democrats came from a political committee run by the governor’s political adviser. One of the new lawmakers will be Democrat Stephanie Garcia Richard, who beat Jim Hall in House District 43.
