New Details in Patraeus Scandal: Woman Who Received Threatening Emails Revealed
FOX ^

Posted on 11/11/2012 3:39:27 PM PST by nuconvert

-excerpt-

Kelley alerted the FBI about the emails that appeared to be an attempt to blackmail Petraeus, which started the investigation, said the sources, who are close friends of the Petraeuses.

In addition, the threatening emails might not have come from biographer Paula Broadwell, as widely reported.

Kelley, a Tampa, Fla. resident who is married with three children, and sister Natalie are close friends of the Petraeus' and spent holidays together. And she was not having an affair with the retired, four-star Army general, sources close to the family tell Fox News.

Thanx. Glad we’ve cleared that up.

They kept in touch via email and went running together when Broadwell came to Washington

Among other things.

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.

To Cantor.
That is why you have committees and congressional oversight.
They are the ones that determine if tips are credible by putting people
Under oath. You failed in your leadership position.
I also think u r not be truthful about not telling Bonehead, your master.

Chicago???

Now “close friends of the Petraeuses” are counter-leaking!

Just who besides Petraeus and Broadwell would have a motive to try and shut Broadwell up?

My understanding from reading this article, is that the tip came fairly recently via a whistle-blower after the FBI had already been investigating this for months.

This is just all mere tabloidy irrelevancy, designed to further confound the public who after a certain point might
grow tired of the whole tragic Benghazi “mess”. This is merely a diversion which adds nothing to the real issues at hand. For anyone who wants a real overview, read the grest interview Greta vonSusteren did with Rep. Trey Gowdy. Gowdy

My understanding is the tip came Two Weeks BEFORE the election.
Plenty of time to Put Betrayus under oath to determine if the affair was true
And if National Security was compromised. It is not Cantors responsibility
To determine if the tip was credible or not.
That’s what committees do. The fact he notified the FBI is good.
The fact he did not refer this to his committees is bad.

Was Dr. Kelley on Petaeus’ team when possibly treated at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa? Something is up here, ... and it may have not been Petraeus. :o/

Just asking...

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/jill-kelley-friend-david-petraeus-received-harassing-emails/story?id=17693092

Nov. 11, 2012

The Florida woman who received harassing emails from Paula Broadwell, spurring an FBI probe that ultimately uncovered the Gen. David Petraeus’ extramarital affair with his biographer and led to his resignation as director of the CIA, has been identified as Jill Kelley, a local concerned citizen who volunteers to help the military.

“We and our family have been friends with Gen. Petraeus and his family for over five years. We respect his and his family’s privacy and want the same for us and our three children,” Kelley said in a statement.

A close friend of Petraeus said Kelley and her husband, who are both civilians but supporters of the military community, befriended the Petraeus’ when the general was stationed in Florida.

January 31, 2010

Petraeus, who runs the U.S. Central Command from MacDill Air Force Base, and his wife, Holly, watched from the comfort of a big tent on Bayshore Boulevard. They were guests of surgeon Scott Kelley and his wife, Jill.

Scott T. Kelley, MD
Surgical Oncology

Dr. Kelley is a surgical oncologist. He is trained in the surgical treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies of all kinds, including esophagus, pancreatic, stomach, colon and rectal, hepatobiliary, retroperitoneal sarcomas and gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

He received his medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University in New York. He performed his internship and residency in General Surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he also completed research fellowships in Cardiothoracic Surgery and Surgical Oncology. Dr. Kelley then completed an additional surgical oncology fellowship at H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute.

Dr. Kelley served as Section Head of Esophageal and Gastric Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center and was promoted to Associate Professor of Surgery. He is only one of a handful of surgeons in the world who performs minimally invasive esophageal resection, pioneering and refining what is referred to as the ‘Kelley Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy’.

Dr. Kelley is certified by the American Board of Surgery.

He is affiliated with H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute in Tampa and Lakeland Regional Medical Center.

Tue October 6, 2009

(CNN) — Gen. David Petraeus, the top U.S. military commander in the Middle East, has been treated for early stage prostate cancer and says recent screening tests have delivered “very positive” news.
Gen. David Petraeus was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February.

Gen. David Petraeus was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February.

He was diagnosed in February, his office said, and underwent two months of radiation treatment at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

“My cancer was caught very early,” Petraeus, 56, said in remarks released by his office. “I’ve had two PSA tests since completing treatment five months ago, and they’ve both been very positive. Surgery to remove the prostate was not an option due to plates/screws that were used to repair my pelvis after it was fractured in a parachuting accident.”

wiki:

On April 23, 2008, Secretary of Defense Gates announced that President Bush was nominating General Petraeus to command U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM), headquartered in Tampa, Florida.

Only two facts need to be known in order to understand the most important fact of all which is that 0coward left 41 Americans to die.

Fact one: Only the POTUS can issue a CBA to send a rescue mission into a foreign country.

Fact 2: No rescue mission was ever sent.

That said I am all for subpoenaing every single ass-kissing 0coward-loving commie scumbag involved in this and grilling them until there's nothing left but a little carbon crisp.

The article says that the woman, or one of the women, who received threatening emails was not having an affair with the General. My, my, who would send threatening emails to a woman who was not having an affair? And what in the world could be the intent of such emails? And now no one seems to know for sure where the emails came from.

This is such a hugh and series surprise. NOT! I'll say one thing for the 0 administration, they sure know how to tangle things to the point it is almost impossible to untangle them...almost, but not completely. I hope to live long enough to learn the truth about this whole, sad episode. And I'm not talking about just an affair.

Did you guys just hear Jennifer Griffin on FOX? FIRST- AP reported the command is in Tampa when in fact, it is at Ft. Bragg...AND Jill Kelley does NOT work for the Dept of State nor CentCom- she does not have a job that means she needs to stay in touch with Petraeus- they are family friends of Holly and David Petraeus.

And- it now seems it may NOT have been Paula Broadwell who wrote those threatening emails...so now the question is- WHO DID? And why in the HELL didn’t the FBI notify ANYONE that the DCIA was under investigation and that someone was trying to blackmail him?

NONE of this makes...sense.

Holly Petraeus also works in the Obama administration, for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Looking more and more like Petraeus may have been on the left all along we just didn't know.That alone can explain a lot. This story is a bit convoluted. At first I heard that petraeus broke off the affair when he joined cia. Than later I heard he kept on e-mailing the woman--huge numbers of e mails.Hard to sort it all out.

You mean after Betrayus has resigned and may not be cleared to testify
about classified information since he is no longer CIA Director.

And Hillary is set to step down after Obama reclaims his throne?

The fact is Cantor failed in not passing this tip onto the committees
as soon as he got it. If the committees chose to do anything until after
The election, so be it. However, the fact he did not refer this to committees
Before the election is a failure on his part.
In addition, who believes Bonehead did not know this before the election.

MM: just an FYI ping, not a Benghazi ping.

Mom: Nevertheless (post 24), you raise some important questions.

The article only has a single bombshell line hanging in the air:

“In addition, the threatening emails might not have come from biographer Paula Broadwell, as widely reported.”

But in the Fox TV report, Griffin said, “according to sources that we’ve talked to in BOTH families, it may not have been Paula Broadwell herself.”

Griffen continues: “This has been tainted as a fight between two women over Gen Petraeus, but it is not clear that that’s what it was at all.”

Griffen: “What we do have confirmation of is that people [people???] close to David Petraeus were potentially receiving threatening emails that may have been, in fact, an attempt to blackmail the Director of the CIA.”

Who sent those emails, & what was the nature of the threat.

Griffen: “There is one other point I think it is important to clarify. It is not clear that this is about an affair with Paula Broadwell at all.”

Griffen goes on to say that the affair was a open secret his closest friends and that the FBI likely would have known about it. She says, It is not clear why this is coming out right now.”

DUH! We suspected FBI & WH had to have known of affair long ago. KT McFarland confirms this. The FBI and WH knew EIGHTEEN MONTHS ago that Petraeus had an affair.

Notes on interview on Judge Jeanine last night with KT McFarland (national security commentator and personal friend of Petraeus)

She said 18 months ago Petraeus would have had an investigation and a polygraph (for CIA Director) from the FBI. The FBI and WH (because file would go to WH Personnel office) knew then about the affair.

She said in spring of 2011 when she was in Afghanistan there were “definitely rumors (about the affair) from a number of people.”

She also said that when senior official testifies before Congress, they submit their testimony to the WH. If they didn’t like what Petraeus was going to say....

She is certain that Petraeus would NOT lie under oath.

KT McFarland interview:

http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/justice-jeanine/index.html
************

And back to your other point:

” And why in the HELL didn’t the FBI notify ANYONE that the DCIA was under investigation and that someone was trying to blackmail him?”

This has now become another scandal having nothing to do with Petraeus’ affair, or, at least, only incidentally.

The person wasn’t trying to shut Broadwell up...she/he was trying to use Broadwell to spy on Petraeus (perhaps). Blackmailing both.

Valerie Jarret,Obama and Axelrod come to mind. This goes straight to the WH.

Yep, exactly. NYT even did a style piece on Broadwell today. A Freeper asked why the NYT was doing an article on Broadwell that portrayed her as Donna Reed, LOL.

Once Kelley’s name was revealed today and that she vacations with Holly and David, I wondered why she didn’t call Petraeus about it first. Now, in light of new info, for all we know, he might have been the person who told her to call the FBI.

When Griffin said “PEOPLE,” instead of person (Kelley), I wondered if maybe Broadwell herself might have gotten a threatening email.

Also, I haven’t seen this confirmed, but Peter King said FBI has been investigating for the last FOUR months...which is more than a couple, which is the phrase I have seen thrown around in reports.

Finally, I am wondering if/hoping Petraeus has some new plans for some non-sexual extra-circular activities until he finds a new job.

Have been posting from the jump that this affair thing was the easiest way for petraeus to REMOVE HIMSELF from his position at cia because there is far worse he REALLY doesn’t want exposed.
So he ‘resigns’ with a little help from his friends. Someone who disagrees with me about petraeus said he was a ‘soldier’s soldier. No, A thousand times no. Allen West was a soldier’s soldier. Petraeus was an ambitious brownnoser

Last I read the state dept would not confirm or deny Kelly’s employment, so I appreciate your report that Jennifer got that question settled. I’m resigned to the printed word and FR.

I have not watched FOX news since the election, nor any other news. I am so done, for the time being, with all the hype and clatter and opted instead for a spiritual retreat of the in-house variety. The silence is bliss.

So, thanks for posting.

Griffen: “What we do have confirmation of is that people [people???] close to David Petraeus were potentially receiving threatening emails that may have been, in fact, an attempt to blackmail the Director of the CIA.”

Possible scenario:

Blackmailer: Paula Kelley, you tell your friend Petraeus to (fill in the blank with a demanded action or inaction) or I (we) will reveal his affair with Broadwell.

What threatened actions or inactions could the blackmailer be demanding from Petraeus?

Assuming that the blackmail has something to do with Benghazi, off the top of my head:

1. Resign immediately and shut up
2. Stick to the video demonstration story that we told you to tell during the first congressional briefing, only make it more convinceing this time!
3. Whatever you do don’t tell the truth about Barry’s involvement (failure to issue CBA) or that of his key underlings

She is the assistant Director for the Office of Servicemember Affairs

“At the CFPB, Holly Petraeus conducts outreach with military families, and has been an important figure in its crackdowns on abusive lending and illegal foreclosures that banks have performed against military families in recent years. Banks are legally barred from foreclosing on the homes of active-duty military personnel, but had ignored the rule in recent years, until the CFPB began monitoring the abuses.

Holly Petraeus also flagged banking problems for military families who had been ordered by the armed services to relocate. In cases where families were having trouble paying their mortgage, banks were erroneously encouraging homeowners to miss payments — a situation which led to needless foreclosures. In many other cases, banks were simply failing to respond to homeowner inquiries or work out alternative payment options for families who had to move for their military jobs. Holly Petraeus helped craft new regulatory guidance cracking down on such abuses.”
