Senate panel sets hearings with Clinton, Kerry
By DONNA CASSATAAssociated Press
Senate aides said the Foreign Relations Committee notified senators Wednesday night that Clinton would testify Jan. 23. The panel will hold a hearing on the nomination of Sen. John Kerry to be the next secretary of state on Jan. 24.
Kerry is the chairman of the committee and will retain that title until his widely expected Senate confirmation. However, his likely successor, Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, will preside over both hearings.
Clinton also is scheduled to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
