FBI Agent in Petraeus case sent shirtless photos of himself to Jill Kelley (!)

How much weirder can this possibly get?

From Wall Street Journal:

FBI Agent in Petraeus Case Under Scrutiny

WASHINGTON—A federal agent who launched the investigation that ultimately led to the resignation of Central Intelligence Agency chief David Petraeus was barred from taking part in the case over the summer due to superiors' concerns that he had become personally involved in the case, according to officials familiar with the probe.

New details about how the Federal Bureau of Investigation handled the case suggest that even as the bureau delved into Mr. Petraeus's personal life, the agency had to address questionable conduct by one of its own—including allegedly sending shirtless photos of himself to a woman involved in the case.

FBI officials declined to identify the agent, who is now under investigation by the Office of Professional Responsibility, the internal-affairs arm of the FBI, according to two officials familiar with the matter.

-snip-

The FBI officials found that he had sent shirtless pictures of himself to Ms. Kelley, according to the people familiar with the probe. That same agent, after being barred from the case, contacted a member of Congress, Washington Republican David Reichert, because he was concerned senior FBI officials were going to sweep the matter under the rug, the officials said. That information was relayed to top congressional officials, who notified FBI headquarters in Washington..

14. It does make sense, and I was never in the military.

Always in the public eye, always on call, stressed out, surrounded by mealy-mouthed bureaucrats -when one comes upon someone not so mealy-mouthed and available -all sense goes out the window.

Hey, it happens to James Bond all the time!

Both are equally loaded with crazies. People in the private sector just get paid more.

20. Per the article, after he was pulled off the case for improper conduct.

It says he wanted to make sure the case moved forward so went to Reichert.

This hurt the president? I get the security breach, I get the fact that he had to resign...but how does this really impact what PBO did or didn't do? It's like a distraction...I want to talk about how we won this election in a huge way and how we can't cave on the tax increase

21. This has nothing to do with the President.

If you don't like the topic, start one you do want to talk about. Not meaning to be snarky, but this isn't about the election (and post-mortems), it is about some bizarre soap opera unfolding because a General had an affair. No one cares about his bedroom, but the details dripping out on this are getting stranger by the day.

29. Also has a little something to do with super secret, extra-ordinary,

highly sensitive information leaked by their own, which until recently they had been accusing Obama of.

I hope you can appreciate the humor a bit more now.

26. There are lots of threads on how we won the election,

even more on how they lost it and plenty on us not caving in on the expiration of taxes for the rich.

This one just happens to be about how loony this entire episode that the right wing pundits first started pushing because they thought they had something on Obama. Turns out they didn't but it is a mighty interesting, topsy-turvy, through the looking glass kind a story. Please let the rest of us enjoy it.

serious.

If I wrote something like this in a plot it would never be taken seriously... even in a spy thriller including the black widow.
