you guys are killing me with this not testifying thing. Of course they will be called to testify if the situation calls for it. Petraeus was being
investigated after another, unrelated investigation found out about him. The other investigation delt with another General in Afghanistan and they
subsequently found out about the Petraeus affair.
The senate intelligence committee chairwomen Sen Feinstein said on Andrea Mitchell today that they haven't found a link between Benghazi and the
affairs. She also says that for now they are going with the interim CIA director for testimony, but if they need the General to testify he will be
called. She also said that some of the investigation would be closed door, and other parts will be open to media. This was all on MSNBC news I know,
however her counterpart in the house, a republican, said the same exact thing.
The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says she will seek testimony from former CIA Director David Petraeus, who resigned Friday as
CIA director after acknowledging an extramarital affair, about the September attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans
“I have no doubt now that we will need to talk with David Petraeus and we will likely do that in closed session. But it will be done one way or
another,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell on Monday. Feinstein also she also may subpoena reports on a trip
Petraeus took to Libya in the last year. “I believe that Director Petraeus made a trip to the region shortly before this (Petraeus affair) became
public,” Feinstein said on "Andrea Mitchell Reports."
“We have asked to see the trip report. One person tells me he’s read it, and then we try to get it and they tell me it hasn’t been done.
That’s unacceptable.” “It may have some very relevant information to what happened in Benghazi,” Feinstein said.
A week and a half ago, Petraeus went to Tripoli and conducted a personal inquiry into the Benghazi attack, NBC News has confirmed. Petraeus has not
commented on his trip to Benghazi last month.
On another note, the real question that needs to be asked is how Eric Cantor knew about the Patreous investigation before even the Senate Intelligence
Committee or even the President. That's what this problem is. Cantor was holding off on telling anybody about the information and that's a crime in
I say lets wait an see what becomes of this investigation before we jump the gun and say Clinton and Petreous won't tesifty. If congress wants them to
testify and they dont, (the only way thats possible is through executive power, then we know theres a cover up), then we will know what happened
Edit: I take that back. They could plead the fifth on the stand. But then the world would know of a cover up.
