    Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, speaks in the final hour of a marathon testimony on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Oct. 22, 2015, before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

    Former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton answered questions for 11 hours on Thursday in front of the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

    This marked the ninth investigation and the third time Clinton testified about the attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

    Here are some of the key points to take away from the hearing, according to NBC News.

    Clinton appeared calm, compassionate and concerned — a sharp contrast to a Senate Benghazi hearing from more than two years ago — and she never raised her voice, while committee chairman Trey Gowdy, R-South Carolina, said not much new was discovered.
