Obama Justice Dept Prosecutors Recommend Felony Charges Against Gen. Petraeus

Prosecutors at the Obama Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have recommended bringing felony charges against four-star General David Petraeus for allegedly providing his then-mistress Paula Broadwell with classified information during his tenure as CIA director, reports the New York Times.

Attorney General Eric Holder will decide whether to follow prosecutors’ recommendations to bring charges against Gen. Petraeus.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Gen. Petraeus and his former mistress and biographer Paula Broadwell have both told investigators Petraeus did not give Broadwell classified intelligence. The Journal says a search of Broadwell’s home and computer uncovered some classified materials that were “years old, but remained secret government information.”

Holder has come under fire for dragging out his decision on whether to prosecute Petraeus. When FBI Director James Comey was asked last month the reason for Holder’s delay, he responded: “I can’t say. I mean, I guess I could say, but I won’t say.”

Gen. Petraeus resigned from the CIA in Nov. 2012.
