If you thought the reason Hillary Clinton declined a request to appear before Congress to testify on the botched response to the Benghazi attack was due to work obligations you would be wrong. She won’t be there because she’s visiting friends in Australia.
Few details of Ms Clinton’s visit on Wednesday and Thursday have been revealed, but it is understood she will visit close friends, one whom is connected to the Carnegie Mellon University. It also believed that:
THE 150-strong entourage is likely to visit Penfolds’ Magill Estate for either a wine tasting session or private function.
