FBI recommends charges against ex-CIA chief Petraeus: NY Times

David Petraeus speaks onstage on November 7, 2014 in Los Angeles, CaliforniaThe FBI and US Justice Department prosecutors have recommended bringing felony charges against retired General David Petraeus for allegedly providing classified information to his former mistress while he was director of the CIA, The New York Times reported. The investigation stems from an affair Petraeus — who was also commander of American forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan — had with an Army Reserve officer who was writing his biography, the newspaper said, citing unnamed officials. The probe focuses on whether Petraeus, who resigned in 2012 when the affair became public, gave Paula Broadwell access to his CIA email account and other highly classified information. FBI agents discovered classified documents on her computer after he quit, according to the Times, which said that Attorney General Eric Holder must decide whether to seek an indictment that could send Petraeus to prison.
