U.S. defense chief Austin asked to testify over hospitalization non-disclosure

The chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, Mike Rogers, has requested Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to testify before the panel regarding the delayed disclosure of his recent hospitalization for prostate cancer. Austin had been receiving treatment since the beginning of the year, and the failure to inform President Joe Biden in a timely manner has led to criticism from lawmakers and caught the White House off guard. Rogers stated in a letter that Congress needs to understand the circumstances and decision-makers behind the non-disclosure of a cabinet secretary’s whereabouts.
