An aide to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says the Virginia congressman first heard about CIA Director David Petraeus’ extramarital affair on Saturday, Oct. 27, from an FBI source he didn’t know.
The extramarital affair that brought down David Petraeus’ celebrated career last week raised many questions. Among them: when exactly the affair began? Here’s a timeline of events, according to officials involved in the investigation.
Retired Gen. David Petraeus began an affair with his biographer in 2011, two months after he became CIA director, a friend and former top aide said Monday. The case has brewed an uproar in Congress over FBI investigative tactics and the fact lawmakers weren’t told soon enough about the probe rocking the intelligence and law enforcement establishment.
Petraeus must either volunteer to speak as a civilian or Congress must subpoena the former CIA Director to speak to complete the Benghazi puzzle.
Members of Congress said Sunday they want to know more details about the FBI investigation that revealed an extramarital affair between ex-CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer.
Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus has resigned, according to CBS News.
According to his letter of resignation, Petraeus asked President Barack Obama on Thursday to allow him to resign, and on Friday the president accepted.
The CIA is remembering those lost in covert operations, adding a new star to the intelligence agency’s memorial wall and more than a dozen names to its Book of Honor.
