FBI Raids Broadwell’s Home

FBI Agents Raid Paula Broadwell's Home

Jeff Smith ‏@TVsJeffSmith

FBI confirms to @WSOC_TV they’re inside the house, but won’t say why. I’m seeing 6 agents with cameras and lots of boxes.

Dianne Gallagher ‏@DianneG

FBI agents have been inside Paula Broadwell’s Dilworth home for about an hour now. About a dozen there, with bags/boxes, taking pics @wcnc

Dianne Gallagher ‏@DianneG

Also, several neighbours say this is definitely the first time anything like this has happened at Paula Broadwell’s home. No previous raid.

Dianne Gallagher ‏@DianneG

FBI agents have been looking inside cabinets & snapping photos in carport of Paula Broadwell’s Charlotte home. @wcnc

2. I wonder why now? They've had access to her emails for months.

I wonder what has just been uncovered in the past couple of days.

7. maybe it's a dog and pony show for us and the media?

 

seems odd, as you say. they've had months and now that the word it out there - they go in gangbusters?

hmmm.

3. And that home is near Reille Hunters home...

 

Probably no connection but just a bit ironic. What is that the political home wrecker street or something?

25. You know, this is kind of sad

The guy (and her, too, I suspect) were having the time of their life,
she was getting off on being drawn into the power circles,
he's got this cute thing under his desk,

and blam, now it's all blown up,
and all they were doing was having some fun in life,
nobody really was getting hurt or threatened (except Jill, at the end )

I think.

I suppose she could have been spying for Rove,
but kinda doubting it.

30. I agree, they took their chances and then got wacky with

the emotions that go along with cheating.

Not that I'd know anything about these themes, heh.

I do know it's easy to go wacky when jealousy enters the picture, very lower circuit stuff that proves we're all human.

Also I think Petraeus and wife will not split up and we'll all forget about this by next week! She is probably not incapable of understanding the situation.

What will the new scandal be..

16. They got in there before the lawyer told her to discard

certain items..

I am guessing they are obliged to look for classified documents.

She's got some more 'splainin to do

17. Mrs. Greenspan can be counted on to spin this the right way.

The more the Republicans attempt to reassure us that this is all under control the more I suspect that this is blowing up in their faces.

31. Right - OK FBI - I Consent To You Sending In A Bunch Of Agents To Not Raid My Home......

(sarcasm) and take pictures and carry out boxes filled with my stuff. Go right ahead -- Raid my house. Just don't make a mess.

Really - a "consensual raid"?

Man, what an amazingly crazy story.

I thought it smelled pretty good when it first showed up,
but it's gotten way more fun than I expected.
