Congress demands answers from FBI over Petraeus investigation

Facing growing pressure and criticism, the FBI is about to be grilled on the Petreaus scandal. On Wednesday, agency officials will go behind closed doors with members from the House Intelligence Committee who are demanding to know who knew what and when.

Security questions over Petraeus affair

It's been roughly six months since the FBI began its investigation into the threatening emails sent by Paula Broadwell, but lawmakers only learned of the unfolding scandal this past Friday.

The Petraeus affair: A lot more than sex

Unlike many stories about powerful Washington figures having secret affairs, the downfall of spy chief David Petraeus goes beyond sex.

The scandal surrounding the decorated four-star Army general who once ran the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan involves questions of national security, politics and even the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

Petraeus, 60, resigned Friday after acknowledging he had an affair with a woman later identified as his biographer, Paula Broadwell, 40, a fellow West Point graduate who spent months studying the general's leadership of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

FBI agents were at Broadwell's Charlotte, North Carolina, home late Monday, said local FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch. She declined to say what the agents were doing there.
