Senate Intelligence Committee to Probe FBI Handling of Petraeus E-mail Affair

Ridiculous.  The WH most certainly knew and covered it up until after the election.  Par for the course in this administration.

The Senate Intelligence Committee will investigate why the FBI failed to immediately notify the White House and Congress when it discovered that ex-CIA Director David H. Petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair.

The FBI began investigating after a woman, a friend of Petraeus and his wife Holly complained to law enforcement about receiving harassing e-mails, according to two officials briefed on the probe.
California Senator Dianne Feinstein, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she hasn’t been told the second woman had an affair with Petraeus. “She was frightened and went to the FBI,” said Feinstein, a Democrat, appearing yesterday on “Fox News Sunday.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation traced the threatening e-mails to Paula Broadwell, 40, the author of a Petraeus biography. Broadwell’s messages warned the woman to stay away from Petraeus, said the officials briefed on the probe, who asked for anonymity to discuss information that hasn’t been released. The probe also found e-mails that showed an affair between Broadwell and Petraeus, they said.

A senior U.S. military official identified the woman who reported the e-mail threats as Jill Kelley, 37, who lives in Tampa, Florida and serves as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base, site of the military’s Central Command and Special Operations Command, the Associated Press reported.
Storied Career.
