It's obviously a ****ed up mess. I think the FBI had no idea what they had. When Petraeus got involved, they had to do their due diligence and make sure nothing was compromised. Imagine the public back lash if it came out later that intel had been compromised, and the FBI declined to investigate.
And I'm sure they would have swept it all under the rug, but this FBI dude with a crush on the other girl (I can't keep everyone straight) went around his superiors and got it on Cantor's desk.
But I don't know. Every day this becomes more bizarre. I don't know what to make of the house search today and the other general getting involved.
