FBI Suppressed Petraeus Scandal to Protect President

Criminals occupy the WH.

Ronald Kessler reporting from Washington, D.C. — FBI agents investigating CIA Director David Petraeus's affair were shocked when told by bureau officials that despite the national security implications, no action would be taken on their findings until after the presidential election: Only then would President Obama ask for Petraeus’ resignation.

The White House claims President Obama and his national security advisors were first informed of the Petraeus' affair on Thursday, two days after the election.

But the  official timeline strains credulity. Senior FBI officials suppressed disclosure of the highly sensitive case, apparently to avoid embarrassment to Obama during his re-election campaign.

On Oct. 10, I was contacted by a longtime FBI source who told me that a bureau investigation had uncovered Petraeus’ affair with a journalist and that it could potentially jeopardize national security.

The veteran agent related to me that FBI agents assigned to the case were outraged by what were they were told by senior officials: The FBI was going to hold in limbo their findings until after the election.

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

  1. So, the CIA director has an affair and its a national security issue, President Clinton has an affair and its a witch hunt?

    1. It's difficult to deal with dishonest people as they have absolutely no qualms doing anything as long as they win. The Founders are ashamed.

    2. I think the Founders knew this was inevitable.

    3. They can't help us. We shall persevere.

  2. One of my favorite quotes is the line of Chief Dan George in the classic movie "The Outlaw Josie Wales." He was reporting on the Government man telling his tribe, "Endeavor to Persevere."

    Most of my favorite founders were Virginians writing as Anti-Federalists. They generally warned that the Constitution was subject to the kind of abuses of interpretation that have put us where we are today. But I don't think even they could predict the overwhelming effect of immigration.

    I could probably happily live with The Constitution of the Iroquois Confederacy. Those guys didn't live on borrowed money that could never be repaid.

  3. I don't think even they could predict the overwhelming effect of immigration.

    The furthest thing from their minds, I am sure.
