REP. PETER KING: ‘Hard to believe’ Obama didn’t know about Petraeus.
King was asked directly on CNN if he took Obama at his word that he didn’t find out about the affair and investigation until after the election.
“It’s hard to believe,” King said.
Senior Justice Department (DOJ) and FBI officials were aware as early as this summer that then-Director Petraeus was having an extramarital affair and that there were concerns national security might have been compromised.
The White House has said it was notified on Wednesday night that Petraeus might resign over an affair and that Obama was told Thursday morning.
Yeah, it’s not like anyone at Justice would be giving the White House a headsup or anything.
Meanwhile, I still have questions about John Kerry and Sheldon Whitehouse’s involvement.
