(Newser) – The latest in the ongoing and complex David Petraeus sex scandal: The FBI is investigating how Paula Broadwell got her hands on classified files found in her home during a late-night search Monday, reports the Washington Post. Officials say there's no evidence that Petraeus was the source of the documents, and urge the media not to label it as a full-blown national security investigation, but one official says that “the issue of national security is still on the table." And we probably haven't had our last surprise in the scandal: "My immediate gut is like this is the National Enquirer,” says Sen. Dianne Feinstein. “I mean, every day there is something new.”

Petraeus is toast. His little piece of ass has cooked him. Hope it was worth it Davey. See you in Leavenworth dumb fuck.

She is a slut pure and simple. She cockled her husband, she became a horrible role model for her children. The files are probably nothing nothing more than training manuals, just something to add sparks to this investigation so that everybody involved in it can get their 15 minutes of fame. The Tampa lady is only superceded in ignorance by the FBI agent making a big deal out of this. I bet his bosses are real pleased with him going over their heads, so just add his career to the junk pile too. I don't feel bad for Petraeus, I feel bad for the two husbands of the black widows. The Tampa house is in foreclosure, where the hell is this lady spending her husbands money. He's a cancer surgeon he has to be knocking back a quarter mil or more. Shame on them all. those doctors need to dump those two real quick and find themselves a couple of nice nurses.
