Subpoena issued in Benghazi investigation

Several top aides to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are targets of the latest subpoena for information about the drafting of talking points after the siege last fall on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, wrote in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry that the administration's refusal to cooperate fully with a House investigation left him "with no alternative but to compel the State Department to produce relevant documents through a subpoena."
