My sense is that the FBI is under Holder’s thumb.
They would be investigating Petraeus because Obama never really trusted him.
Broadwell entered the picture, I’m thinking, because someone was leaking Benghazi stuff.
In Denver Broadwell, according to Fox News “confirmed in October that the CIA annex in Benghazi asked for reinforcements when the consulate came under attack on September 11. She also acknowledged that “there was a failure in the system.”
I’m wondering if she was Jennifer Griffin’s source, and if Griffin’s past travels had her and Broadwell become acquaintances.
That has her as an anti-Obama mole with access to info who would have to be purged. It could call into question Petraeus’ loyalty to Obama.
She became an easy takedown since Holder’s FBI knew of the affair.
I also tend to think of Broadwell as probably being anti-Obama - or at least, not an Obama shill and not controlled by him - and I can’t imagine Petraeus would actually have become that involved with her if he hadn’t shared some of her outlook (or she his, perhaps).
The information on the affair was just held in reserve for the time when Obama needed it to get rid of or at least destroy the credibility of both of them.
I’m sure Obama has dirt on everybody in his regime and uses it to intimidate and control them.
One hypothesis is she's not as smart as she wants everybody to believe and is just another girl under the desk!
