CNN’s report has been confirmed by Fox News.
NEW – @FoxNews learns Trump's guests tonight include Mark Geist, Bruce LaVelle, Karen Vaughn, Gen. Mike Flynn, & Gen. Keith Kellogg

The republican nominee is, perhaps unknowingly, following the advice of NBC’s Chuck Todd, who said yesterday that Trump would be better off bringing “one of the grieving Benghazi family members,” than somebody like Gennifer Flowers, which Todd felt was getting too personal.
Trump instead opted for a Benghazi survivor in Geist, who appeared in an NRA ad a few months ago called “Stop Hillary Clinton.”
