WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton is willing to testify once before a special congressional panel investigating the 2012 attack on US diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, not twice as the panel's chairman has asked, her lawyer said on Monday.

The attack has hounded former Secretary of State Clinton for years, and Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives investigative panel are digging deeper as she ramps up her bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, chairman of the committee, said last month he wanted Clinton to answer questions at two public hearings about Benghazi and her use of a private email server while Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

Clinton's lawyer David Kendall said that there was "no basis, logic or precedent for such an unusual request."

In a letter to Gowdy, Kendall said Clinton was fully prepared to stay as long as necessary to answer all questions from the committee whenever she appears, but that she would not testify on two separate occasions "when one will suffice."
