Petraeus Reaches Deal to Plead Guilty to Misdemeanor But Will Likely Not Face Prison Time

By Adam Goldman and Sari Horwitz
Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Lawyers for David H. Petraeus have reached an agreement with federal prosecutors for the retired general and former CIA director to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge in connection with his handling of classified materials.

As part of the agreement, Petraeus admitted to improperly retaining classified material, according to documents filed Tuesday in federal court in Charlotte. Petraeus has also acknowledged he misled FBI investigators, officials said.

Federal prosecutors will not seek prison time for the retired four-star general but instead will ask a judge to impose a probationary period of two years.

Obama: No Judgment Yet on FBI Handling of Petraeus Investigation

Steve Neavling

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.

Since the news of CIA Director David Petraeus’s extramarital affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell broke last week, members of Congress have demanded to know why they weren’t informed of the relationship sooner. Some, including House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), have also insisted that the Department of Justice had an obligation to inform the president.

“Who knew what, when?” has become such a familiar talking point in Washington, that it rolls off the tongue anytime a new scandal breaks. But the desire for those in Congress, and even others on the president’s national security team, to be instantly briefed on ongoing FBI investigations conflicts with the longstanding rules governing criminal inquiries, which specify a much more narrow distribution of information. Those rules exist to protect both the integrity of investigations themselves and the reputations of people who become implicated in them, many of whom are never charged with a crime.
