The David Petraeus/Paula Broadwell affair is getting weirder by the moment. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the FBI agent who began the investigation which led to Petraeus’ resignation is himself under investigation by the FBI’s internal affairs arm for questionable conduct in the case.
Sources say the agent, who has not been named, was a friend of Jill Kelley, the woman who complained that she was receiving threatening emails from Broadwell. The Journal reports that the agent’s supervisors became concerned that he was becoming “obsessed” with the case and at one point sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley.
Has the Anthony Weiner scandal taught us nothing?
While the FBI searches Broadwell’s North Carolina home tonight in a search for evidence, those following the story are trying their best to piece the clues together themselves.
Others hope the bigger puzzle remains in focus.
