Rounding out weeks of interviews and exclusives on the topic of her new book Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton joined CNN’s Christiane Amanpour for a CNN town hall yesterday at the Newseum followed by a joint live interview closing out Bret Baier’s “Special Report” and opening Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record.”

Both the televised town hall and her sit down with FOX led with yesterday’s breaking news of the arrest of Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah.

“This is another indication, as President Obama said in his statement today, that the United States has an unwavering commitment to bring to justice those who are responsible for attacks on Americans, no matter where they are, no matter how long it takes,” said Clinton in her conversation with CNN chief international correspondent Amanpour.

Mirroring her earlier comments before CNN, Clinton told Baier, “My point is that what we try to do in this country and I think what was made abundantly clear by this latest effort is we have an unwavering commitment to go after anyone, no matter how long it takes, who is responsible for harming Americans and everybody around the world who thinks about that, plans that, needs to know that will be the outcome.” Read more

CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour will moderate the only network televised town hall with the former Secretary of State on Tuesday, June 17th at 5 pm ET. The special broadcast before a live audience will take place at the Newseum and air on CNN and simulcast worldwide on CNN International and CNN en Espanol.

One Woman: Two Different Noses?

On Thursday night CNN’s Christiane Amanpour appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” for a special live discussion on Guns in America.
