Source: TPM



IGOR BOBIC 12:05 PM EST, TUESDAY DECEMBER 18, 2012

The U.S. Department of Justice has dropped its investigation into whether David Petraeus' mistress, Paula Broadwell, "cyberstalked" Jill Kelley, the AP reports:

A retired general, Petraeus resigned as CIA director in November after acknowledging the extramarital affair, which was exposed after Broadwell emailed Tampa socialite Jill Kelley, allegedly warning Kelley to stay away from Petraeus and Gen. John Allen, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan.

2. Soooo the act that spawned the investigation that torpedoed the General wasn't a criminal act after

all?

THAT is going to get some people to talking.

4. does not mean it was not criminal....

just means DOJ does not pursue rich or high ranking or politically inconvenient criminals.

Light up a joint and see how fast DOJ will go after your ass.

5. Heh, good point.

Still, it's an outcome that can be spun pretty hard in a number of directions. Can't wait to see the snippets of Beck and the like, on the right sidebar here on DU, with the highlights of the nuttery spin machine.
