Obama: No Judgment Yet on FBI Handling of Petraeus Investigation
Posted By allan On November 16, 2012 @ 8:41 am In FBI,News Story | No Comments
In his first public comments about the downfall of CIA Director David Petraeus, President Obama said he is reserving judgment on whether the FBI handled the matter properly, the Wall Street Journal reports .
Obama said Wednesday that he is waiting for more information before deciding whether the FBI should have told him earlier about the investigation involving Petraeus.
One good sign, Obama said, is that it so far doesn’t appear like classified information had been disclosed “in any way that would have had a negative impact” on national security, the Wall Street Journal wrote.
“I have a lot of confidence generally in the FBI,” Obama said.
The FBI continues to investigate whether Petraeus’ affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, led to the leak of classified information.
