Nov. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus is willing to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee, panel chairwoman Senator Dianne Feinstein told reporters today.

Feinstein said yesterday her committee wants to talk with Petraeus about circumstances surrounding the attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. Petraeus recently returned from Libya.

“General Petraeus is willing to come before the committee, and the details of that are being worked out,” Feinstein, a California Democrat, told reporters today.

“I don’t know when General Petraeus is coming at this stage,” Feinstein said. “We have an agenda for tomorrow.”

Senator Saxby Chambliss, a Georgia Republican, said yesterday he also expects Petraeus to appear soon before the panel. He said he also thinks the committee will probe allegations of the affair that led to Petraeus’s resignation Nov. 9, after the Federal Bureau of Investigation finishes its work.

“At some point, I’m sure we will,” he said.
