FBI Found Out About Petraeus Affair While Investigating a Complaint Against Mistress Sending Threatening Emails to Another Woman to Stay Away from Petraeus


Petyon Place or is it Petraeus Place or is it Petraeus-gate?

File the following under, you have got to be kidding me. According to accounts, the FBI learned about CIA Director Petraeus’ extramarital affair while they were investigating a complaint from a woman close to Petraeus who had received harassing emails from the general’s alleged mistress.

The FBI traced those emails back to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and Petraeus’s biographer, according to news reports. When law enforcement officials delved into her email account, it was apparent Broadwell and Petraeus were engaged in an affair.

The identity of the woman who filed the original complaint has not been disclosed.

This morning on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Senator Feinstein (CA-D) stated that Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell, was threatening another woman to stay away from her boy Petraeus.  Senator Dianne Feinstein also stated that she should have been briefed by the FBI sue to the nature of national security issues and potential security breaches.  In the end Feinstein added, “I can’t believe it. But, that’s what it is.”

VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit 

From The Hill, Senator Feinstein: No link between Petraeus resigning and Benghazi investigation. Says who? We were also told by the Obama administration that there was no terror connection between the Benghazi attacks and terrorism. They told us that the attacks were a result of a reaction to a video tape.  I am far from a tin foil hat conspiracy individual, but the timing of this resignation is far too convenient for Obama and the Congressional Benghazi hearings next week. Was there an affair, yes. Is he resigning because of the Benghazi debacle, probably not. However, why did Petraeus not resign sooner? Once again we are presented with the question that Barack Obama will never answer, what did he know and when did he know it regarding the Petraeus affair? Who really does not believe that Obama knew and was only going to disclose this until after the election? Who does not think that Petraeus was not asked ny the WH to delay his resignation until after the election and some quid pro quo would be provided to Petraeus  in return?

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she does not think there’s any connection between the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus and the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that resulted in four dead.

“On the events in Benghazi and his resignation, absolutely not,” Feinstein said on Fox News Sunday when asked about a possible link. “And I think if you really think this thing out everybody will come to that same conclusion.”

UPDATE I:  Woman who received threatening emails from Petraeus’ mistress identified as Jill Kelley, a local concerned citizen who volunteers to help the military.

      The fact that there was ‘no link’ to the attackers is the core
      of the problem. There was likely a link to the White House
      tho, and that’s what has to come out. The attackers may have
      acted on their own Islamic terrorism schedule, but the likelihood
      of the White House (Obama) covering it up to suit political ends
      is very high at this juncture considering all the intense efforts to
      cover it up and blame a video or else. Petraeus should have been
      engaged, and if not why not?

      and this is Obama’s fault how?
      SM: You are really naive if you think that Obama did not know about this and made Perteaus resign after the election so it did not hurt him and embarrass Obama. Let alone such up the news cycle and point fingers back to Benghazi. Another story that Obama did not want discussed until after the election.

      Diane Frankenstien wouldn’t know her ass from a hole in the ground.

      why didn’t cantor say anything??????
      Why didn’t Dave Reichert say anything?????????

      The first knowledge of the affair outside the FBI came from an agency whistle-blower who contacted a Capitol Hill Republican who told House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
      Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Wash., got a tip from a friend who knew the whistle-blower, as reported by The New York Times.
      Sources tell Fox News that Reichert talked to the whistle-blower, then referred him to Cantor. The whistle-blower talked to the majority leader’s office, then to Cantor directly. The whistle-blower — who purportedly was concerned about a possible national security breach — was then put in touch with FBI Director Robert Mueller.
      “Our office stands by the accuracy of the New York Times article as it pertains to Rep. Reichert,” the congressman’s office said Sunday.” We have no further comment about our involvement.”
      Cantor staffers said they didn’t immediately tell the House Intelligence Committee or chamber leaders because they didn’t know whether the tip was credible. So they turned it over to the FBI.
