Re: BREAKING! CIA Director David Petraeus Resigns!
As more information regarding the resignation started to eke out, the conversation continued. The terms “Petraeus” and “CIA Director” started trending worldwide — in spite of significant problems affecting the service. As of 5:50 p.m. EST, the phrase “Paula Broadwell” started trending on Twitter.

Later Friday evening, reports surfaced that Petraeus’s biographer, Paula Broadwell, is being investigated by the FBI for having improper access to the General’s email and other classified information. [link to mashable.com]
 Quoting: Treyfish


That story is a dead end (links go no where), and is the only place that mentions it. Apparently it is being transmitted (as usual) from some anonymous speculation on Twitter. Or more sinister by some spook disinfo agent to make smoke and mirrors to cloud the real story (again, as usual)...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27142624


CIA Directorover an extramarital affair, according to a letter he sent to CIA staff. The news was confirmed by Press Secretary Jay Carney in a briefing this afternoon.

Slate’s Fred Kaplan quickly reported that the affair was with Paula Broadwell — Gen. Petraeus’ biographer who was embedded with him in Afghanistan.

Now,is reporting that the FBI is investigating Broadwell, fearing that she had access to some confidential information.

From NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel on MSNBC:

Also we have learned from law enforcement sources — law enforcement officials — that the FBI is now investigating, and this is an ongoing investigation, into Paula Broadwell.


… The FBI investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to gen pet’s emails and may have had access to his — may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information. And so we know this investigation is taking place, and that it has identified Paula Broadwell.

The investigation began last spring, report..

 Quoting: Treyfish


okay thanks,,,

Here's the primary sources..

The biographer for resigning CIA Director David Petraeus is under FBI investigation for improperly trying to access his email and possibly gaining access to classified information, law enforcement officials told NBC News on Friday.

The law enforcement officials said they do not believe the FBI investigation will result in any criminal charges. They also stressed that Petraeus is not under investigation.

NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel

[link to usnews.nbcnews.com]

The affair was discovered during an FBI investigation, according to officials briefed on the developments. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter. It was unclear what the FBI was investigating or when it became aware of the affair.

[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

At some point after Petraeus was sworn in as CIA director on Sept. 6, 2011, the woman broke up with him. However, Petraeus continued to pursue her, sending her thousands of emails over the last several months, raising even more questions about his judgment.

“The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”

However, an FBI source says the investigation began when American intelligence mistook an email Petraeus had sent to his girlfriend as a reference to corruption. Petraeus was commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan from July 4, 2010 until July 18, 2011.

The investigation began last spring, but the FBI then pored over his emails when he was stationed in Afghanistan.

They don't have jurisdiction... If he was a traitor w/I the DOD he would be investigated by one of the myriad DOD investigative agencies & he would be tried under the UCMJ....

The US Military has its own justice system... An active duty general would be investigated by DOD agencies & if criminal misconduct is alleged he would be prosecuted under the military justice system...

Note - DOD civil matters are also investigated by the DOD investigative agencies - not FBI

Get the issue? The FBI investigates civilians... So, if this came out due to an FBI investigation, and he was the subject of the investigation, it most have related to his actions after he retired from the military...

Not quite tard.

DP has a extramarital affair ... hardly newsworthy in Washington. My theory is somebody in the administration however probably tries to lever him to testify falsely at Congressional Hearings on Benghazior he'll be outed.

DP is an honourable man and calls their bluff rather than lie for the PoS in the White House.

Ask yourself who has the weight to Direct the FBI to investigate a Cabinet member ... Director of the Agency no less.

Stinks to high heaven, I say.

Hope the Republicans call him up to testify and he accepts. Nothing like truth as an antidote for America's festering WH chancre.

Getting "extra-marital-affaired" might be better than getting "heart-attacked", for the time being at least,

but if he is getting falsely set up then what comes more to mind is how many are on his side in the CIA, and what beliefs and intentions does he carry in his administration.
