FBI Agent in Petraeus Case Investigated

If Lifetime hasn’t optioned film rights to this scandal yet, nothing’s right with the world. In a bizarre twist, the FBI agent who launched the investigation that ended with the revelation that ex-CIA chief David Petraeus was having an affair with his biographer was taken off the case over the summer for becoming too involved. Sources tell The Wall Street Journal he allegedly went so far as to send shirtless photos to Jill Kelley, the friend of Petraeus who allegedly received threatening emails from his mistress, Paula Broadwell. The same agent apparently also contacted congressman David Reichert with concerns that the FBI planned to sweep the scandal under the rug.
