Washington has reeled from Petraeus's shock resignation last week when it was revealed he had an affair with a married military reservist and author of a fawning biography of the general, who is also married.
Despite that scandal, lawmakers see Petraeus as potentially vital to their probe into exactly what happened in Benghazi on September 11 when four Americans were killed including the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.
Republican and Democratic senators on Tuesday called for scandal-plagued CIA ex-director David Petraeus to testify about the deadly September 11 attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya.
"I believe he will (testify). I think he's a responsible person, and I believe he will come," Democrat Dianne Feinstein, chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
Sen. John McCain hit the Obama administration hard for its early response to the attacks on the U.S. mission in Libya two months ago. John McCain even stated he wants all who are involved in ignoring the warnings in a pair of cuffs and behind bars for not moving forward to protect the country and its embassey's. McCain even stated " If this inquary shows Obama is guilty of not lifting a fingure I will be the first to sign the paper to impeach the president. In fact I would like for him to be summoned to a hearing to explain himself."
