Gen. David Petraeus will testify about the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee's closed hearings, according to Politico. The exact date of his testimony hasn't yet been worked out.

"Mr. Petraeus has indicated his willingness [to testify]. He is eager to come before the committee, so we will work out the details," Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein told Politico.

ABC News reported on Tuesday that Petraeus had conducted his own investigation into the attacks that killed four Americans. He resigned as the head of the CIA on Friday after the FBI uncovered that he had had an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.
