The friend confided to People Magazine:

Jennifer Garner's gorgeous husband just went to Washington and you'll never believe why!!
Batman vs. Superman star Ben Affleck visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday and testified before the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations!
The A-list actor is an expert on the travesties occuring in the Congo and he advised a whole room full of senators, including former Presidential candidate John McCain, who were genuinely grateful for his expertise!!
Curious what Ben had to offer? Ch-ch-check out his whole testimony (above)!
Is he the world's best samaritan or if this is still just part of Ben's continued penance for starring in Gigli? We'll probably never know, but we're nevertheless grateful for his contribution because the problems in that region of the world are SERIOUS!
Over five million people have been killed there since civil war broke out in the late '90s and Ben's non-profit advocacy group, the Eastern Congo Initiative, attempts to curb some of that violence.
Keep up the inspirational work, Mr. Affleck!
