WASHINGTON (AP) -The top Democrat on a House panel says the authors of the independent investigation into the deadly assault in Benghazi, Libya, should testify at a hearing, not in a private deposition.
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland sent a letter Monday arguing that former diplomat Thomas Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen should respond to Republican criticism of their report at a hearing next week.

Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said Sunday he would seek depositions from Pickering and Mullen.
