The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee says she wants to know why the FBI didn’t tell her sooner that agents were investigating an extramarital affair by CIA Director David Petraeus.
Feinstein tells “Fox News Sunday” that she first learned about the matter from the media late last week. Feinstein says she called Petraeus twice on Friday and was dumbstruck when he acknowledged the affair.
The California Democrat says the news was “like a lightning bolt.”
Feinstein says she’s now been briefed by the FBI but wants to know why the bureau didn’t notify her sooner because of the national security implications.
