Why was the FBI investigating General David Petraeus’s top-secret email account?
Well, we don’t have that information yet. We’re getting small info releases at a time to lessen the impact. Men have been doing this to their wives for years. Yeah, ordered some tees and things from Golfsmith today… Then spring the new clubs over the course of a year. What, those old things?
The Washington Post reported Saturday that the FBI investigation began because a woman close to Petraeus sought protection after receiving several threatening emails from Broadwell. After a deeper look at the general’s personal email account, there were initially questions about whether it had been hacked. But investigators soon concluded from the content of the emails that they were evidence of an affair between Petraeus and Broadwell. According to the Post, weeks of probing culminated Tuesday, when Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was told that compromising material had been found. Clapper subsequently told Petraeus to resign…
The Post report opens up other questions: Who was the woman who received the emails from Broadwell? What was sent from Petraeus’s account? Was there broader access to his email, as indicated by other reports? And beyond the emails indicating an affair, was there any indication of impropriety on Petraeus’s part?
Dang! How many other women did this guy have on the side anyway? Are we down to, Gosh, maybe he isn’t who we thought he was? Ya think?
And, as it turns out, Barack Obama did not know about this. Period. Because why bother him with trivialities. Because he’s president and Petraeus is a measly CIA guy. Nope, wasn’t told. So he’s not to blame at all.
Probably not something you’d want to bother Congress with, either, until after the election. I mean when you think about it.
FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.
“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.”
You are kidding me, right. The FBI compromises the free world by not informing the president that his CIA director may be susceptible to blackmail? To avoid embarrassing Barry? Really? Well, okay.
