-- fourteen years over operation for the CI it was like -- -- -- graciously agreed to.
-- -- -- -- they weather's so we can ask you more questions.
About just Petraeus apparent.
CIA morals are gonna talk to Warner who.
All -- on an interview that I conducted -- -- demand problem.
And that was slow.
On termination for teachers like and while much I suspect -- -- Imus Benadryl and her.
Seem weird because.
Which is why at one point I asked her general -- as -- married because.
The sound the may have blundered girl alone and probably -- and autonomous zone and which you know you're in a position where you can -- social -- Ought to continue what we're -- las Armas triggered me -- we discussed I ask you.
This when those FBI began this investigation last summer.
Although YouTube and them that they say they didn't know but there was some traders angle and you thinks are telling the truth.
Yes I'm not I I see that assist you don't.
Just fairly straightforward but you know someone who was a friend -- an -- on the field.
And we are talking about that during break -- mean that helped to push the investigation into actual you know active.
And and again it wouldn't have taken them on the just reviewing the the emails in its forensic review and nowadays with the tools you've got to do search.
It's pretty it's pretty straightforward OK and that's when they would have come up with this this connection with Petraeus -- -- discovered to come to the connection of -- -- Then what day.
Who would they be -- -- under compelled to -- well they would have given given the band who was doing within the bureau and cyber crimes or or.
You know just a local field office whatever it was.
You know at at that point then the the agents in the investigation -- -- had to go and kick this thing upstairs to the top.
There's no way they -- sale to -- -- my supervisors -- -- well you -- -- the CIA directors are much about it on the director of the -- -- directed FBI gets -- he sits down with his legal counsels and says what what's our obligation to what's what's our duty to inform.
And at that point and it's got to go to justice it's gotta go to the top to hold -- And then at that point goes over to the White House because you're talking again about eight they don't know this right they probably don't suspect it's -- is it a counterintelligence concern here are necessarily.
-- they have to treated as such.
And you've got to look at what's the potential worst case scenario and so it is it's it's again it's a potential national security issue that's got to go to the White House because -- who would involves.
And this idea that somehow they kept in a bubble nobody told anything to clapper was over -- who's technically still -- and while the Director of National Intelligence which would technically would be.
Petraeus is boss -- clapper.
That the idea that he wouldn't be sold until Election Day as far as -- -- defies belief.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Our.
Assumed one shouldn't brutal but -- that to the president of the -- -- about to -- -- as early as September.
It's reasonable to assume and it's reasonable to.
I'll be concerned if he didn't.
And if the reason why he didn't was because people wanted to keep him protected ahead of the election so that he could legitimately say I didn't know anything about this until after the election the that's a political move and that certainly wouldn't be the first seven habits in Washington so explain it but don't explain it by saying we just didn't know nobody -- okay.
Our soul all why wouldn't say but don't they but they but not won a release that information I can say -- part of the election.
But why wouldn't -- even in spite of that these kinds of things -- all the time in Washington -- various officials.
Get involved in various times why -- -- why wouldn't they handle this behind the scenes in -- Particularly after the election present -- reluctant.
Second term demand easy to sort of Petraeus what you just have to resign.
And are not more rebut his life -- so sources have some.
And -- I cynical person and when things that they were trying to take the spotlight ultimate Aussie.
Invest -- investigation.
-- -- very least but there may be in the -- also worker.
Down -- I think there has been a lot of talk about well maybe he was.
You know they'd be date got -- off -- tracks because they were worried about -- bank Gaza and there were about what I was gonna say but he's gonna say it anyway they got a summons him and he's gonna go up to the hell he's gonna testify that's gonna happen so.
I think that angle and doesn't really hold water.
I think with -- The investigation by the time they finally got to the point where -- set Petraeus down -- admitted to the affair.
I think everybody involved realize that this thing they're not to walk this dog back its already out they probably realize there are too many -- tentacles out there.
And you know what Washington's like nobody nobody's gonna keep their yap shut for a walk.
And so I think you know the decision was he got to get out ahead of it and honestly with something like that -- -- over your head.
You cannot lead the men and women of the CI.
OK so why of them spectrum that latency.
Why did Petraeus and testify about -- policy not to dubbed he thought of as a result.
All of this dopey and video when he knew better.
For his life yeah.
Yeah that's that's probably the one question that is beauty.
Is in everybody's mind is really difficult to resolve the -- -- -- the FB IR rated ball abroad morals.
-- or should -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well I suspect it probably look at the classified documents to broaden our freedom of speech you'd -- -- -- apparently revealed some.
Aforementioned don't have -- never.
Someone -- -- -- it's the out yet she's that is clearly there's an issue with her except that goes without saying -- but.
I think what they're concerned about it not necessarily in terms of access from.
Petraeus is a concern about all the work that she'd been doing all the debt people that you get in contact with during the course of both right in the book and and also which was kind of lingering about Michael -- -- a menu you -- been -- that speech in Denver.
You know she looked like she wanted to get -- walk on role on alias or 24 summing it so.
-- you know I think there was there's this concern -- the so I suspect that's what the that the investigation over at the at the house was all about plus they may have some leads that point to other people.
You know being involved in in terms of her contacting them -- trying to develop them for access.
Again you know if that's the FBI's -- the Al counterintelligence investigations that's what they do.
-- is -- -- -- Well I know my wife said before I got a -- from -- come out to the East Coast and she said look -- -- not that this.
You know a chance in -- that some was -- right right your biography but if someone does that person better look like Danny DeVito.
If if so I'd I think they'll be a lot of high ranking people are gonna think twice before who writes -- -- book.
Well particularly since should never written a book has got to tell us right or anything else hello I I don't know as of right now is a ghost -- and our man thank you -- -- -- to have expired backers fell fourteen year.
