No cyberstalking charges for Petraeus' mistress Broadwell

Source: CNN

Paula Broadwell, a woman who was romantically involved with former CIA Director David Petraeus, will not face federal charges of cyberstalking another woman friendly with Petraeus.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Tampa informed Broadwell's attorney Robert Muse of the decision in a brief letter dated December 14.

"As the target of our investigation, we believe that it is appropriate to advise your client that our office has determined that no federal charges will be brought" regarding allegations of cyberstalking, Assistant U.S. Attorney W. Stephen Muldrow wrote.

Muse told CNN he was "very pleased that the U.S. Attorney's office in Tampa very promptly resolved this matter."

1. If Broadwell were charged she would blow the whistle on Petraeus and we can't have that. nt

2. Did someone pay off the McDill "socialite?"

Or does "no federal charges" not rule out "no state charges?"

Broadwell is not out of the woods yet--I've known servicemembers who were sent packing with general discharges for doing far less than this person has done. I'm not sure if the Army is simply lax, or there's a climate of sloppiness owing to a wartime footing.

During the investigation the FBI obtained Broadwell's computer and discovered she had classified materials. Investigators also searched Broadwell's home in North Carolina. Sources said the materials were technically classified but not highly sensitive. Still the FBI and Justice Department prosecutors have not resolved whether Broadwell will face charges for having such materials in her personal possession.
Sources close to Broadwell acknowledged that issue has not been resolved.
