Investigate the FBI
2012-11-15
Regardless of what method the FBI used to read their allegedly explicit communications, the Daily Beast reported, "the FBI agents found no indication that it constituted a crime or a threat to national security. They confirmed this when they interviewed Broadwell and then Petraeus."

Incredibly, this didn't stop the investigation. And if privacy were any kind of priority, this should have been the end.

[snip]

Congress is now demanding to know why it wasn't informed by the Justice Department about the details of the Petraeus affair earlier. Lawmakers should instead be worried about why the public was informed of these details at all, given that no crime was committed. And instead of investigating one man's personal life, they should investigate how to strengthen our privacy laws so this does not happen to anyone else.

#1  Congress is now demanding to know why it wasn't informed by the Justice Department about the details of the Petraeus affair earlier

Supposedly laws dating from the Watergate era are being cited as to why Congress was not notified.
