Timeline: Hillary Clinton's History in the Hot Seat

Hillary Rodham Clinton is obviously an experienced Washington player — but as CQ Roll Call columnist David Hawkings pointed  out earlier this week, she’s also an incredibly experienced witness before Congress.

Heading into the former secretary of state’s much-hyped appearance in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday, use this timeline to look through her history in the hot seat.
