These statues came into play after Watergate, and were designed to keep intelligence committee members abreast of whom they could and couldn't call upon for needed testimony at certain times.
The fact that these rules weren't followed explains why the Senate/House intelligence committees were so taken aback to find that suddenly, the key figure for the Nov 15 Benghazi hearings, will not even be there.
Because of this breakdown in following the law, investigators did not keep lawmakers apprised of the growing investigation of Petraeus. And even though the investigation into Paula Broadwell, which eventually caught Petraeus, lasted for months, it was not portrayed to Congressional officials until about six hours before the CIA announced it.
Because the Republicrat duopoly and a complicit media serve themselves and no one wants to know or wants us to know what is going on.
Now what will you do Feinstein? Your beast is loose, will you do what must be done? How do you think Ol' Yeller would have panned out if he wasn't dealt with? Cujo!!! Do it now, or even you will feel the burn when he enacts his agenda fully!
General David Petraeus has brought many years of protection with ongoing dedicated service to our nation. Let us never forget what efforts and success stories he has provided. If I remember correctly, General D.P. was not excited about accepting this job (he was assigned to it by Pres. Obama) as CIA Director. However, he really had no choice since he must obey the Commander-in-Chief. He is being used as a scapegoat, so Pres. O. is not frontline news with the Bemgazi event so fresh in everyone's mind. Yes, Gen. D.P.'s action is not expected (of which Gen. D. P immediately apologized), but to me it is even more inappropriate for the media to blow it well out of proportion. He made no breach of national security, that I have heard.
Again I don't believe this!!! Why are they investigating an affair when we have people dying, and a traitor in our WH and congress and senators and gov not doing their jobs, lying, blackmailing, deals made by bribery!!! Affairs are totally wrong, but God WILL deal with them, they need to investigate the traitors and those who are walking all over the constitution!!!
HE WATCHED THEM DIE........................................THEN HE LIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
