Link to Petraeus uncovered

Aug 2012

By late summer, after the monitoring of Broadwell’s emails uncovered the link to Petraeus, prosecutors and agents alerted senior officials at FBI and the Justice Department, including Eric Holder. The investigators never monitored Petraeus’s email accounts.

When Petraeus’s name surfaced, FBI investigators were concerned that the CIA director’s personal e-mail account had been hacked and that national security had been threatened.
