A social planner's complaints about email stalking launched the monthslong criminal inquiry that led to a woman romantically linked to former Gen. David Petraeus and to his abrupt resignation Friday as Central Intelligence Agency chief.

Ms. Kelley, who helped organize social events at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the emails, which she viewed as harassing, the U.S. officials said.

FBI agents were pursuing what they thought was a potential cybercrime, or a breach of classified information.
In the aftermath of the investigation, some lawmakers are aiming criticism at the FBI and the Obama administration, including Attorney General Eric Holder, who knew about the email link to Mr. Petraeus as far back as late summer.

The top man knew everything. He chose to keep the matter secret until a time when he could put it to good use.
This is the time.
Just imagine if it were Nixon currently in the White House.
So Kelley gets some e-mails saying “Leave my man alone”and “I know what you did!” and she doesn’t know who they’re from and she goes to the FBI? And some FBI Agent spends months looking into this without notifying his superiors? Baloney. I used to admire the FBI. They’re just a bunch of political hacks and stooges. I’m pretty sure that an FBI Agent would have to let his boss know what he’s working on. Can you see this...
“What are you working on, Steve?”
“Well, Sir, a friend of mine got a threatening e-mail and I’m looking into it.”
“Oh, they threatened to kill your friend?”
“Ummmm....no. The e-mail said ‘I know what you did!’”
“Get your behind back to work on some real crime.”
So what’s late summer? How about September 12th?
Results of a community organizer's complaints.
The fact that Holder was sitting on this (as was the FBI) is probably why an FBI whistleblower went to Rep Dave Reichert, who subsequently passed the info on to Cantor and Mueller.
“The emails began arriving in Jill Kelley’s inbox in May, U.S. officials familiar with the probe said.”
I suspect if you waterboarded Eric Holder he’d start spilling enough deep, dark secrets to keep talking continuously past Christmas, 2014.
I can't wait for this “whistleblower” to testify before a House committee.
It should be highly informative and entertaining.
This is how it will be spun:
The CIA is a rogue outfit running secret rendition sites that the President knew nothing about. Petraeus was trying to blackmail Obama regarding the Benghazi experience, trying to make it look like the Prez never gave an order to protect the Ambassador, when in fact the CIA iced the order in order to make Obama look bad and swing the election to Romney who might be more friendly to the CIA.
And the press will believe it. They are priests in the Obama Personality Cult. They will believe anything. And everything. They think it’s part of being a good American.
Off to the evening races!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Thank you, sweet ((((MM))))
None of the time lines add up. Paulas speech on October 26, wherein she talks about prisoners in the annex, suggest shed been in contact with GenP, immediately after 9-11-12, which is long after their romance was allegedly concluded.
Thus far, everyone is lying! Its a huge cover-up for the Marxist over Benghazi.
Im waiting to hear from FBI Director Mueller. If he lies then.... our entire govt is corrupt.
How dare you notice that teeny, tiny discrepancy between the many volumes of stinking mendacity emanating from the bowels of the press corpse.
petraeus said it was over. Are you daring to question hizzonor?
