(AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File) (Newser) – Conspiracy theorists, take note: Hillary Clinton will be back to work next week, reports Foreign Policy. The secretary of state has been out of commission for about three weeks because of a stomach virus and concussion, though critics accused her of making it all up to avoid testifying before Congress about Benghazi. She promises to do so sometime next month, though she'll apparently not be able to fly abroad for a while. "The secretary continues to recuperate at home," an aide tells FP. "She had long planned to take this holiday week off, so she had no work schedule. She looks forward to getting back to the office next week and resuming her schedule."
