FBI probes into Petraeus staff over Broadwell's access to classified information

While the Petraeus scandal continues to unravel the FBI is probing into whether or not the numerous classified documents biographer, Paula Broadwell, obtained from the retired general's staff were authorized by Petraeus himself.

When Broadwell visited Petraeus in Afghanistan she would often ask for sensitive information she claimed Petraeus wanted her to be provided with, according to former staff members and officials.

FBI investigators are not only looking into what role staff members played in the release of this information, but are also inquiring if the classified material was provided when the former CIA director was in the military or when he resigned from the Army in September 2011 to head the CIA.

OutFront tonight: Frances Townsend, former George W. Bush Homeland Security Adviser and Chief Washington Correspondent Ronald Kessler.

GOP turning on Norquist: "I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," says Sen. Chambliss

With 39 days left until tax increases and across-the-board cuts are set to take effect, Republicans are feeling the pressure to work with the Democrats and the President to stop the U.S. from falling back into another recession.

A comprise with Obama and Democrats, would mean tax revenue being part of a package that includes spending cuts and entitlement reforms.

In the past, many Republicans were opposed tax increases and went as far as to sign on to Grover Norquist's Taxpayer Protection Pledge. With the looming fiscal cliff - some Republicans are deciding to move away from the no-tax pledge.

Chambliss fires off on Norquist's anti-tax pledge

"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," Sen. Saxby Chambliss told Georgia television station WMAZ, a CNN affiliate, on Wednesday. "If we do it his way, then we'll continue in debt and I just have a disagreement with him about that."
