    Of course they never saw the files ROTFLOL; they were merely found in the WH.

    Had Nixon done that he would have been impeached.

    Yeah, that is how it is spelled. Could not get close enough for spell checker to make it right.

    If that happens, you might have an actual complaint. Now, not so much.

    What's funny about this is....his mistress has some very close proximities to me in her background. So close that we apparently were only separated by 10 years :O I was shocked when I found out today.

    Its only a very serious charge when it is politically convenient for those in power (im not talking of conspiracy theories in THIS case here, or even national politics for that matter).

    I don't know that I have a complaint about it, other than the political bs surrounding it.

    Apparently Ms Bradwell or Broadwell sent emails to another woman.. threatening her if she didn't stay away from the General... and that woman went to the FBI.

    However, the part that is fishy, is that powerful men usually do a better job of keeping it under wraps.
    Using your position to get laid may be a difference between men and women, LOL, but if Maggie's right and powerful men can't keep their zippers up, it's also true that hell hath no fury like a jealous woman.

    Broadwell apparently thought there was another other woman, yet to be identified, and this woman contacted the FBI because she was so frightened.

    FBI probe of Petraeus triggered by e-mail threats from biographer, officials say - The Washington Post

    One of humanity's classic memes. So tawdry, so predictable. Sad.

    Yeah, but what's suspicious is that the whole affair and it's backdrop of accusations, so far rises only as innuendo and no charges. I'm sure the FBI carry a load of files on all the DC officials, which most Presidents and highly placed officials can use against political opponents. Not saying that's what happened here though I'm sure it has before.

    The CIA knew ahead of time that the Libyan Embassy was under threat and had requested protection. I think the Administrations Staff decided to deny the request in hopes that less military or CIA presence would buy them favor with the new ruling Libyans but it was a poor decision that cost innocent lives. Now they're tucking their tails and running in circles trying to obfuscate the truth in hopes the story will go away. How Patraeus and Clinton are mixed up in this I don't know but there's more to it than we're hearing.

    I am no lawyer but as a citizen I would place subverting our constitution in direct violation of his oath is one. Another may be in covering up what really happened with Benghazi. Another may be in that cute little stunt he pulled with recess appointments last year....and on, and on, and on....This guy is a liar, and a criminal, and you voted him back in. Great job.
