More fishy smell coming out of this issue. Why weren’t lawmakers notified that an FBI investigation was happening with respect to David Petraeus? Sounds like the Obama administration wanted to get as much intel as possible about this situation behind closed doors then play the card when it was beneficial to them.
Let’s see what comes of all this.
Washington—The top Senate Democrat on intelligence issues said Sunday she would investigate the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s handling of the inquiry into Central Intelligence Agency chief David Petraeus, including why top lawmakers weren’t informed of the investigation before it became public.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), the chairwoman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said on "Fox News Sunday" that she learned of the Petraeus investigation on Friday when her staff began getting press inquiries on the matter. She said she and other committee leaders are routinely made aware of investigations involving national security issues prior to them becoming public.
"We received no advance notice" of the inquiry involving Mr. Petraeus, said Sen. Feinstein. "It was like a lightning bolt." She later added: "This is something that could have had an effect on national security. I think we should have been told."
