Patraeus Affair: So far everyone is Republican

Patraeus himself
Rep. Dave Reichert, Republican of Washington (who told HIM?) tells Eric Cantor about it, Cantor tells FBI.
Paula Broadwell is hobnobbing with lobby group NCSL and hanging with Karl Rove.
pic of Karl and Paula at meeting of NCSL in June (who else was there? Reichert? Cantor?) http://gregmitchellwriter.blogspot.com/2012/11/karl-and-paula.html
Have no idea if Kelley is republican or not.
My head is spinning, need someone to put this all together, someone smarter than I. I think this is all just beginning. The slimiest of the slime are at the center: Cantor and Rove.

1. Cantor thought Rmoney would win the election

and it could be kept "private" imo

14. I think Cantor's job was to keep Petraeus "clean" for 2016

because they felt they could implicate the POTUS in a security leak scandal a couple days before the election without sacrificing him.

Of course when it all unraveled, it would have shown that the POTUS had no knowledge, but it still would have swayed the election.

For some reason...it didn't unravel until shortly after the election and Petraeus ended up in the hot seat. I don't think that was the plan.

Was there outside (anonymous) interference in this?

Who knows but something went awry.

17. Andrea Mitchell was just on saying Cantor did nothing wrong

and in fact did the right thing in reporting back to the FBI. If this is an ongoing investigation, how would she know yet?

2. Something has been nagging at me...

Didn't the media said someone inside the CIA was feeding Benghazi information to them (or to the Repubs holding the hearing?) during the Benghazi frenzy?

Or did I imagine it?

6. That is what I remember.

I believe Paula appointed herself as the press liaison.

Dan Senor, by comparison, is a rank amateur when it comes to misinformation. But at least Dan was officially assigned to the job.

7. Ms. Broadwell meet Ms. Lewinsky

Is it just me or does "Broadwell" sound like a woman in a James Bond movie?

8. I just can't get over that woman's name!

It sounds like something out of James Bond: Patricia Broadwell.

And she's even sleeping with a spy!

Hell, Rove's shenanigans even compare with the best Bond villains!

11. One point about this:

"Rep. Dave Reichert, Republican of Washington (who told HIM?) tells Eric Cantor about it, Cantor tells FBI. "


That apparently happened in October.

It's been reported that the FBI knew about it and was investigating it starting last spring/early summer.

Now did Cantor get it leaked to Drudge just before the election? That might be an interesting question to get the answer to (though we'll probably never find out credibly).

13. Beginning to think that Paula may have been source for leak of CIA/Benghazi link in Issa's witch

hunt. That thing sort of popped out and then as quickly got nailed back down again when Issa realized his committee had leaked classified information. But where did the info come from initially? No one said.

18. "They are active in the G.O.P. social scene in Florida," said a Republican source


About the Kelly sisters:

"They are active in the G.O.P. social scene in Florida," said a Republican source. "They are fun, friendly and beautiful people and political folks like them. I guess they've hit difficult times"

This Petraeus thing just keeps getting better and better.
