What was the real reason for Petraeus' resignation?,
He was having an affair and allegedly/potentially compromised national security in the process.
He was allegedly granting his biographer special privileges and access to information that she didn't need or should not have gotten. There were also
allegations of further abuses of power.
Petraeus wouldn't ruin his career, his reputation, and his family for President Obama.
For any President.
That's just absurd.
He may even face CRIMINAL charges.
If they were blackmailing him as some suggest...well...why not blackmail him into simply lying?
Seems easier and less convoluted, plus you keep a puppet running the CIA.
What's to keep him for telling the truth now that they dropped their leverage?
It's not like he can't.
Wouldn't that be easier and make sure that the information he had would be secure for years to come?
Him testifying has nothing to do with whether or not he is currently a government employee or head of the CIA.
Even if the testimony is delayed...he can still testify. What makes people think he cannot?
You keep the leverage to get him to do what you want, you don't drop it all and give him nothing to lose.
If this is blackmail, it's pretty inept.
That's why I find some of these conspiracy claims to be a bit dubious.
