Demands for FBI to come clean on Petraeus investigation intensify

Powered by Topple

In an interview with CNN on Sunday, Rep. Peter King, R-NY, said there are a lot of “unanswered questions” regarding the timeline of the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus.

“It just doesn’t add up,” King said. “You have this type of investigation, the FBI investigating emails, the emails leading to the CIA director, and it taking four months to find out that the CIA director was involved.”

King, the head of the Homeland Security Committee, unleashed a litany of questions about who knew what and when, and suggested that the FBI come forward to explain the timing of the investigation into Petraeus’s affair with his biographer.

“I think the FBI has to come forward and tell exactly when they began the investigation, why it reached that level, when they first realized that Gen. Petraeus might be involved, and at the time they did realize he was involved, did they go to the White House, did they go to the National Security Council,” said King.
