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.
Paula Broadwell is the author of Petraeus' biography, "All In." She had extensive access to Petraeus in Afghanistan and has given numerous television interviews speaking about him.
Petraeus resigned Friday, citing an extramarital affair. The woman involved was not identified.

That ain’t all she had access to apparently...
If Broadwell has the goods on the Benghazi mess she’d better cough em up quick.
Next they’ll be telling us she produced an anti-Islam video.
Put this bitch in prison Barack. That’s what you do these days. Just get it over with stretch.
Who is next, some guy that doesn’t agree with gun control? Perhaps it will be someone who doesn’t like you selling our diplomats out. Perhaps it will be Christian pastors.
The purge is on. All hail the Islamic Caliphate in the U. S.
She even slyly admitted what happened on the cover of the book.
John Bachelor just reporting on Larry Kudlow’s show that Petraus didn’t want to testify under oath & used affair as an excuse to avoid it. He want’s under oath when he first said the youtube video was the source of the embassy riot.
He wasn’t under oath when he first said the youtube video was the source of the embassy riot.
They’ll subpoena him anyway.
Water-board the Broadwell
If they don’t it screams for a special investigator.
You just knew old Dave had a book in the works.
I’ll bet the Democrat party buys all one million copies.
Whoa..Check out #6...
He had an affair. Because those things can lead to blackmail, he had to resign. He did the right thing.
He was widely known as a man of integrity, prior to this. I still think he was. If he resigned to avoid testifying under oath, that is more behavior I would expect of a political coward, not a military hero. I think it more likely that someone threatened to out him about his affair if he didn’t slant his testimony to benefit Obama. So he resigned and outed himself. If so, he can now testify and rebuild his integrity.
He gave her access, she gave him “access”. He needs to be in prison!
His affair explains why Betrayus was in the tank for Obama on the lies
He spouted about the video. Obama had leverage on him.
Most people cannot connect the dots.
Patraeus has been head of CIA for a little more than a year. How did the vetting process miss this major faux pau. Perhaps they knew and took a page out of the Clinton Playbook for future insurance.
Just too many coincidences for me on a Friday afternoon.
I doubt that most of Obama voters could care less...they got their Obama phones, EBT cards and MORE to come.
Oh, and Romney SUCKS - Big
The FBI has that sap in jail for a year. The one who did the video nobody
Watched. This b!tc$ need to go, as well.
Whores, whores, whores. It always comes down to stupid men and their damned whores
The FBI was doing an investigation on something completely different and somehow Broadwell and than Petraeus gets tangled up in it.
It is not called a “whore”. It is called a “Johnson”.
and for some reason her website has gone tango uniform
We are supposed to believe that the Feebs who have (apparently) been investigating this for some time (at least more than TWO DAYS) confronted him yesterday and he immediately decided to resign "forthwith?"
Give me a break, already.
I'm not rich, but I'd bet the farm that this whole scenario was known BEFORE the election and someone either told the FBI to hold off or ordered Patreus to wait until after the elections to do the "honorable thing," which of course, the corrupt, Chicago-thug, Regime, thought (and they may get away with it) that this would keep him from testifying.
PS: In spite of all of the Lame Stream Media reporting that he won't testify, I've yet to hear if this was his decision, whether the House removed his as a witness or the White Hut is telling Congress that he won't be available now that he is no longer DCI?
What laws did the video maker break?
What laws has she broken?
So far, she isn’t even charged with an infraction. As for the other guy, making lousy videos is now a crime punishable by one year in prison?
I better get my finances in order and kiss my wife good-bye...

The Democratic leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the White House appears to be responsible for some highly criticized leaks of classified information in recent months.
I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks, Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.
It appears Petraeus and Ms. Broadwell were very busy researching her lady parts. Men are really stupid.
And the FBI was investigating him, according to Fox....very curious. Then he gave his bizarre testimony blaming the video for Benghazi. The White House could have been blackmailing him to give that testimony. However, he must have been unwilling to lie under oath to Issa’s committee, so he had to pull the plug on this or they would have.
Issa should subpoena him and make him testify. We are entitled to know if the Chicago thugs forced his video testimony to mislead the people.
this is sounding alot like the Mugumbe regime.
Yeh she also had access to his hemale.
Is she married?
I’m curious to find out a bit more about Broadwell. One has to wonder specifically why the FBI got involved in the first place.
For the likes of the general, if she's easy for you, she's a honey pot.
Well,,,, she’s pretty hot, but has no morals, obviously. She has a husband, and two children. Send her to my house, and I’ll interrogate her as only the world’s most pre-eminent Meta Proctologist can! I mean,,,,, it’s what I do!
I agree with you-he was threatened with exposure unless he lied to congress about Benghazi. But if he tells the truth about what happened, he will lose his retirement. The government and Obama presidency will seek revnge on him that way. He’s in a lose/lose situation. And just why did Obama pull him back from Aphganistan and put him in CIA in the first place?
The possibilities are endless here. Suppose this was Petraeus’ bluff to avoid BS closed-door hearings and out a mole. Just thinking out loud, but for the life of me, I cannot understand why Paula, her husband, MIL, et al, haven’t begun scrubbing public social media accounts.
Re. Source: NBC? Don’t buy it.
They can demote him and mess with his retirement. He can write a book and make the money to replace his retirement. But I think it would devastate him personally. I just hope he remains the man of integrity that I believe he is, his infidelity notwithstanding.
What is the level of security clearance for Vernon Loeb?
My ex-husband’s old boss from Ft. Campbell. My husband also a West Point grad and adulterer.
What do you think?
