CHARLOTTE, N.C. FBI agents are at the North Carolina home of the woman whose affair with retired Gen. David Petraeus led to his resignation as CIA director.
A spokeswoman for the FBI says that agents went to Paula Broadwells home in Charlotte on Monday night. FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch declined to say what the agents were doing there.
FBI agents appeared at Broadwells home carrying the kinds of cardboard boxes often used for evidence gathering during a search. They walked through the open garage of Broadwells house and knocked at a side door before entering the home. One person was taking photographs of the house and its garage as members of the news media watched.

This whole story feels like a distraction or smokescreen to hide something else. The man had an affair. And? Unless this Paula woman killed our ambassador in Libya, who cares?
Consensual search, they are saying. One wonders if the publicly cuckolded Mister Broadwell consents to all of this?
To those who can’t see the significance of this, might I point out that we’re but a half-week into this, and that all the facts might not yet have come out, much less seeped through the interwebs to our very own selves? Time will tell if and how it is significant, or not.
I imagine that the CIA has some interesting information on Obama, and that the good General, as head of the CIA, learned of this info... and may have been using it to apply pressure on Obama for something or the other.
Days to reach Bengazi: 21
Days to reach gayMuzzie enemy: 1
This was barely a crime. The FBI guys in Florida almost ignored the whole thing
Did P have irrefutable evidence showing that gayMuzzzie is AQ...?
If you do MAYBE do steroids you’ll be under the kleig lights on Capitol Hill for a year or two.
If you hump the wrong person the Fumbling Bumbling Idiots will do a dynamic Entry on your home.
Kill 300 Mexicans, 2 cops, 2 SEALS and 2diplomats? NO CONSEQUENCES
Greta asked “What’s going on at the FBI? They don’t do this until Fox News airs video of her at a conference? Is Fox News doing the work for the FBI now?”
I find it interesting that they invade the home of this woman searching
for some type of evidence. When is the FBI going to invade Hillary’s home?
When are theft going to invade Susan Rices home? When are they going
To invade James Clappers home? When are they going to invade Leon
The Obamites wish to silence Broadwell and Patraeus. They had both better have a contingency of bodyguards or they will end up like Breitbart and the guy who did his autopsy......dead from arsenic poisoning.
Yeah. Saw that too.
What about when Greta asked that GOP chairwoman if she was going to supeona Hillary. The gutless chairwoman started stuttering.
Unless I missed something, this particular point bothers me.
How is it that ‘members of the news media’ knew the FBI was going to be there? Were they tipped off by an anonymous person at the Bureau? Or were they contacted so as to insure media coverage - what purpose would that serve?
Seems that something’s not right about this.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is hardly gutless. She is one hell of a strong conservative. One of less than a handful of congresscritters who stood up to 0coward and Hillbilly in defense of Honduras. I didn’t notice that she stuttered, maybe she isn’t used to being on TV, but she said she looked forward to hearing Petraeus’ testimony and they would hear it if it took a subpoena.
We live in exhilarating times, actually.
We’re seeing Romans 1 play out before our eyes, and certainly in Obama are seeing at least a TYPE of the delusion to be sent on people when Antichrist appears. When that happens, of course, all who reject Christ will fall for it, not just Dems.
All has seemed to go Obama’s way. But I recall an epigram that describes his likely future:
With silver mines,
A general of real genius,
He thought himself invulnerable:
In one battle
He lost all three.
Or maybe she found a dead cat in her shower.
Did you not see her response why Greta asked about Hillary?
How much “juice” does Karl Rove still have in DC?
It could be that they are they to benefit Paula.
Rove isn’t distancing himself from Paula, yet.
Yes, I did. She laid out how evasive the State Dept. has been, showed her disgust with them and ended with saying they would get the testimony if it took subpoenas to do it.
When Greta asked about Hillary being called the Chairwoman was so evasive about that that Greta interrupted her several times and said
Just to supeona her. I am sure u saw that as well.
Yes, I heard Greta interrupt her several times making it difficult for her to get anything out but she said what I already said she did. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has stood up against the 0coward regime when no other congresscritter would so many times I can’t count them. To call her gutless is just ignorance.
She well may be a great conservative. I guess my point is why the GOP
Is so hesitant to call Hillary, Susan Rice, James Clapper and other Top level officials? Are Bonehead and Cantor the ones who make the decision
who to call.
We’e in a police state, or at lest the beginnings of one.
What they really need to raid, but never will, is the clinton library. It’s the center of evil.
they were probably just outside her house, trying to get pics of her etc., when the FBI showed up.
Notice the swine AP’s headline, they “are at” the home, like they were invited over for cookies and milk. Did they ring the doorbell?
So what gives? No explanation forthcoming about why now a search, consensual or otherwise?
The stench is stronger every day and pretty soon, even the corrupt, biased, media won't be able to ignore it....well, maybe.
Ive often wondered if Obama, and his mother before him, were CIA. Think about it. Mother could have been a plant to report on communist activities in this country and then in southeast asia after her education. I know that this tin-foil hat stuff. But things like the Plame-affair make you wonder if the CIA has an axe to grind against conservative government in this country. Certainly would go a long way in explaining Obama’s ability to shield his past from serious scrutiny.
I read in the Broadwell’s were on a PLANNED vacation so they were not home at the time. Who consents to have the FBI search their home while on vacation?
Nice of the FBI to give them a heads up, isn’t it?
oops....in the Broadwell’s should be AT THE Broadwell’s.
Sorry, but this is not blown off so easily. He was communicating on a regular basis materials that might or might not have been secret; and the second woman also appears to have compromised Gen. Allen. If this is a smokescreen, it is something within the military that appears to have been building for years. We should ALL be concerned that the head of he CIA, not some low-level agent, was so easily compromised.
Wow. Far out, but you raise a point I hadn’t considered. Certainly the CIA is NOT completely full of conservatives. Bears watching.
Is Paula a SPY? Is Jill Kelley a SPY?? Or were they HIRED by the Obama Chicago thugs to bring down Patreaus and ALLEN????
I don't know... but the CIA's predecessor (the OSS) had a fair number of ivy-leaguers who, if not bona-fide "fellow travelers," were hardly conservatives.
No one's talking about Baraq Sheik Obomba's failure to protect the lives of American citizens any more. That's why this is happening.
Posted this on another thread; fits here too:
It could be that we have a few unsung heroes in the FBI who are doing yoemans duty to get the dirty laundry of the Obama administration out in the open so that the public knows whats really going on, in spite of massive coverup by the Obama WH, MSM, and Dem Party. It is the FBI that blew the whistle on Petraeus, perhaps to save him from further blackmail by Obama and his henchmen, and to save our country from policy decisions hurtful to it.
The FBI also informed the Pentagon first about the investigation into General John Allen, and his e-mail ties to Mrs. Kelley, the other other woman in this whole messy affair. Did the FBI bypass the White House and go straight to the Pentagon to get the latest info out about Allen, or were they prompted by the White House to inform the Pentagon. I doubt the latter, so I wonder what are the real motivations of the FBI, other than to stick it to the CIA. Or perhaps they suspect all sorts of bad stuff is happening over at the CIA. Like Benghazi, and gun running there, and what really happened in Libya.
Or perhaps the FBI is merely another arm now of the White House regime. And within the FBI, if they have become basically White House operatives, are there a brave few leaking info to friendly media in order to try to let us know what is really going on behind the scenes. So much intrigue, so little time. Wheres Brad Thor when you need him?
We were away for several days with no Internet and on a self-imposed news black out, so yesterday evening was my first time to learn of any of this story. But here was my first reaction to reading this in the crawl on a CNN broadcast in the noisy restaurant where we stopped on the way home last night.
Something is very, very fishy about the whole deal. Was this woman deliberately planted to seduce him? Or is the whole thing a lie? Could the damaging emails alluded to be completely fabricated? Since this Soros administration has its hooks in the Internet, courtesy of their friends at Google, why could they not spin evidence out of whole cloth?
After I got home last night and read Beck’s opinion, I was more convinced that my hunches are going in the right direction.
There’s some connection between Paula Broadwell and Obama.
Strangely, they even have a couple of similar facial features: wide, elongated eyes; a facial mole.
I understand, now, that Broadwell is pro-Arab and anti-Israel. Correct?
I wholeheartedly agree. It’s amazing how hard they go after someone for an affair, but can’t go after someone for treason. Wow.
This whole thing stinks... a distraction yes but how is it that the FBI could get into her private email account... under what authority? Is the premise that he divulged classified material? Where’s the evidence of that? This is a constitutional abomination.
