    The prosecution of the MISDEMEANOR offense was to silence Petraeus from being critical of current policy. That was the REAL deal that was made with him. "Shut up and we won't put you in a jail cell." So he shut up and the deal made.

    That's the official story anyway. I suspect it was much worse than that. More likely he SOLD classified info to our enemies. Whenever a govt official admits wrongdoing, you can be sure it's just the tip of the iceberg.

    I don't know if that's true or false but so what anyway? The "everybody does it" excuse is crap. If ted cruz did something like this, liberals would scream for his scalp and say no excuse is acceptable.

    I would like this general to have his life ruined and him having to flee the country.
    Why do you hate Petraeus? He fell in love?

    I would also like to see John McCain charged and convicted because he went to Syria and met with members of Al-Qaeda and ISIS and gave them classified information.
    So yoiu just hate Republicans. Or are you ready to condemn the Clintons, 0bama and Kerry for treason??

    I'm sure you have a high quality citation for, even partially, substantiating this assertion. Yes?

    Maybe the Republican controlled House and Senate shoudl have an investigation into Hillary Clinton's time while she was Secretary Of State?

    Why did you ignore the part where I said Snowden should be tried and convicted of the same charges as Patreaus and given the same sentence? Are you so blindingly partisan that even when someone is calling for equal treatment you still whine about bias?

    I would like this general to have his life ruined and him having to flee the country as well or I would like to see Snowden charged and convincted in absentia with similar punishments.

    I would also like to see John McCain charged and convicted because he went to Syria and met with members of Al-Qaeda and ISIS and gave them classified information.
    There's a significant difference between what Snowden did, and what General Petraeus did.

    Snowden illegally gathered up and smuggled out a huge amount of classified materials, and pretty much put them up for the highest bidder. Russia, wanting nothing more than to stick a thumb into Obama's and Hillary's eye with their foolish 'reset' idea was more than glad to pony up their side of the bargain, after which some (all?) was released to the public, significantly weakening the US' position internationally.

    General Petraeus ill-advisedly shared some classified documents with his lover / biographer, which I don't think ever made it to the public (yes? no?).

    So the amount of classified materials, the scope of who got to see them, as well as the impact on the US are all very much significantly different, which equates to different laws being applicable to their different situations. Yes?

    I'm going to need something to back that up to even consider the idea.

    Sorry, took a few tries to get the right preposition in there.

    The crime with which he was charged is a misdemeanor. How would you suggest that he "got off" with anything? Been reading too many blogs?
