A complaint about potentially harassing emails sent by a woman romantically linked to Central Intelligence Agency chief David Petraeus to a second woman sparked the security investigation that led Mr. Petraeus to suddenly resign on Friday, according to people familiar with the investigation.
U.S. officials familiar with the probe said the Federal Bureau of Investigation began its investigation following a complaint from a woman in Florida about Paula Broadwell, Mr. Petraeus's biographer and the woman identified by officials familiar with the probe as having had an extramarital affair with him.

Relationship Began Through Running
The woman's complaint alleged Ms. Broadwell was sending harassing emails to her about the nature of the relationship between Mr. Petraeus and the Florida woman.
Investigators began looking into Ms. Broadwell, a West Point graduate who wrote a biography of Mr. Petraeus, and over a period of months examined emails that initially suggested Mr. Petraeus's private Gmail account had been breached, these people said.
The revelations Saturday raised the possibility of a more complex situation surrounding Mr. Petraeus. While the specific contents of the emails couldn't be learned, people familiar with the investigations said they suggested Ms. Broadwell suspected the other woman was in a relationship with Mr. Petraeus. There is no evidence that Ms. Broadwell's suspicions were true.
Ms. Broadwell couldn't be reached for comment.

I'm so shocked.
can’t “read more” on wsj link
I can only imagine what Holly Petraeus is going through ....
The other woman may be a journalist. When this first broke on Friday, the name of another woman who is a reporter surfaced on a media insider’s tweet which has since disappeared. This could be another example of a media coverup.
“FBI Probed Woman Linked to Petraeus”
That’s an interesting way to title the srory.
So, when did FBI Director Mueller inform President Obama that the FBI was investigating the DCI?
Anybody who believes that Obama was not informed of this many months ago is a complete moron, or a damned liar.
Mueller would go in person to the WH the day he learned of the DCI email flap. He would have to. If he kept this from the president, he could be fired in disgrace for gross dereliction of duty.
So let’s look forward to Mueller being asked UNDER OATH about when he told Obama, and put the big lie to Obama claiming he only found out after the election.
(Anybody who believes that, I’ve got a really fantastic bridge in Brooklyn I want to sell you very cheaply.)
The purge was motivated by the desire on the part of the leadership to remove dissenters from the Party and what is often considered to have been a desire to consolidate the authority of
Joseph Stalin Barack Obama. Additional campaigns of repression were carried out are planned against national minorities and social groups which were are being accused of acting against the Soviet state and the politics of the Communist Democratic Party.
Most public attention
was will be focused on the purge of the leadership of the Communist Democratic Party, as well as of government bureaucrats and leaders of the armed forces, most some of whom were are Party members. The campaigns also affected targets many other categories of the society: intelligentsia, peasants and especially those branded as "too rich for a peasant" ( kulaks One-percenters), and professionals.

Headline writing is a fine art.
Love that title heading...
And when you consider how many Generals and Admiral(s) have been given the boot recently, one wonders if something else is afoot.
The FBI is so good, those two didn’t even notice....
private Gmail account ???????
I'm not even sure Mueller knows he is still the FBI Director. He has all but disappeared...so much so he can't even see his own relection in a mirror.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Her pal, Elizabeth Warren won, so I doubt she's feeling too bad.
Oh My Lord!!! gmail? You have GOT to be kidding me!
The NSA reads every GMAIL account. There was never a private Gmail account.
