    I think this has more implications than what we're seeing. Though the story just broke a deal behind scenes was most likely brokered days ago during the election. I'm sure heads of Agencies, State, and the Pres Chief of Staff were involved.

    Yes, I agree... see it now.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Clinton was not convicted at his impeachment trial as President of the United States. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999.
    He was acquitted, but still impeached. It's not like they just winked and let it pass.

    I don't know which way to go on this one...

    I can see why having an affair would cause problems being the CIA director...national security and all.

    I also can't see a man of his age bothering with something like an affair... he is 60 years old.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Monica and Petreaus in the oval office during Benghazi?

    The whole thing sounds like BS.

    Is he still testifying on Benghazi in a week as planned?

    Re: CIA Director Resigns

    CNN says he resigned because of an extramarital affair. That's just baffling to me, because 1) he isn't a politician or someone who generally faces public scrutiny for that sort of thing, and 2) he could've just resigned anyway after the election as many cabinet officials do, without giving any reason at all.

    There's gotta be more to this story than meets the eye...

    It could've been as the Media is saying now that he suffered with retiring from the military life into a civilian position or middle age crazies. Most likely there's truth to him being unavailable during the whole Libya fiasco as a result of his affair. I know Hillary was particularly upset about the Ambassadors death, which made me wonder is this a sense of guilt or hiding something? She probably did not like the cover up of how badly it was handled and wanted the real culprit and his affair exposed but using the affair as a cover story, trying not to give Uncle Sam a black eye, which is SOP.

    1. He is the CIA Director. He could have been blackmailed.
    2. He may have come clean to ensure he will never be blackmailed.
    3. 2016. Here is to hoping. If he ever wants to run for public office this would need be public. It is.

    I don't know how it fits into Benghazi except for someone potentially blackmailing him or bringing it up during his testimony.
