Report: FBI agent who investigated Broadwell sent shirtless photos to other woman in case; Update: FBI searching Broadwell’s home? Update: More clues

posted at 9:28 pm on November 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

We’re governed by circus clowns.

Shirtless circus clowns:

The FBI agent who started the case was a friend of Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who received harassing, anonymous emails that led to the probe, according to officials. Ms. Kelley, a volunteer who organizes social events for military personnel in the Tampa area, complained in May about the emails to a friend who is an FBI agent. That agent referred it to a cyber crimes unit, which opened an investigation.

However, supervisors soon became concerned that the initial agent might have grown obsessed with the matter, and prohibited him from any role in the investigation, according to the officials.

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.

Josh Marshall observes that Petraeus suddenly looks like the most mentally balanced person involved in this. This does seem to answer some of the lingering questions, though. Who was the “whistleblower” who tipped Reichert and, eventually, Cantor? Now we know. Why were the DOJ and FBI allegedly reluctant to share the news about Petraeus with the White House and DNI until very recently? Maybe because this scandal is almost as much of an embarrassment to them as it is to Petraeus. Why did the FBI take an unusual interest in what appeared to be an otherwise routine case of cyber-harassment? Because, if you believe the Journal, the agent involved had an unusual interest in Kelley. In fact, the Daily Beast claims to have spoken to a source who’s seen the e-mails Broadwell sent to Kelley. I was expecting there’d be death threats — “hair-raising” material, as I said in a Greenroom post this weekend. It ain’t that:

The messages were instead what the source terms “kind of cat-fight stuff.”

“More like, ‘Who do you think you are? … You parade around the base … You need to take it down a notch,’” according to the source, who was until recently at the highest levels of the intelligence community and prefers not to be identified by name…

When the FBI friend showed the emails to the cyber squad in the Tampa field office, her fellow agents noted that the absence of any overt threats.

“No, ‘I’ll kill you’ or ‘I’ll burn your house down,’” the source says. “It doesn’t seem really that bad.”

The squad was not even sure the case was worth pursuing, the source says.

“What does this mean? There’s no threat there. This is against the law?” the agents asked themselves by the source’s account.

Now we know why no criminal charges were filed. As for why Kelley has reportedly lawyered up with a verrrry pricey legal team, that’s still not entirely obvious. But the weirder this gets, the more understandable it is that she’d want top-notch lawyers on her side. All this story needs now is some sort of John Edwards angle and we’ll have achieved maximum scandal-ocity.

Exit question: Who left the mysterious Wikipedia edit on Paula Broadwell’s entry back in January?

Update: The plot thickens:

Gallagher is a reporter with WCNC in North Carolina and her Twitter timeline is filling up with reports from the scene outside Broadwell’s home. Maybe I spoke too soon about there being no charges filed in this case. But … charges for what?

Update: I assume the probable cause here has to do with those classified documents found on Broadwell’s computer. But that was weeks ago, if I have the timeline straight. Why are they only searching now?

Update: I’m still thinking about Newsweek’s source on Broadwell’s e-mails in the piece quoted above. He was “until recently at the highest levels of the intelligence community and prefers not to be identified by name” and he knows what was in the messages Broadwell sent to Kelley? Is there any obvious suspect besides Petraeus himself?

Update: Yep, sounds like the FBI’s suddenly very curious as to where Broadwell got her info:

“Menacing” anonymous emails that launched the FBI investigation which ultimately brought down CIA Director David Petraeus contained references to the “comings and goings” of high-level U.S. military officials, raising concerns that someone had improperly gained access to sensitive and classified information, a source close to the recipient tells NBC News…

What most alarmed Kelley and the FBI, the source said, were references to “the comings and goings” of high-level generals from the U.S. Central Command, which is based at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, and the U.S. Southern Command, as well as Petraeus — including events that were not on any public schedule.

Emails on ‘coming and goings’ of Petraeus, other military officials escalated FBI concerns

“Menacing” anonymous emails that launched the FBI investigation which ultimately brought down CIA Director David Petraeus contained references to the “comings and goings” of high-level U.S. military officials, raising concerns that someone had improperly gained access to sensitive and classified information, a source close to the recipient tells NBC News.

The first email sent anonymously to Jill Kelley, the Tampa, Fla., woman who reported the threatening emails to the FBI — in May referred to Kelley socializing with other generals in the Tampa area and suggested it was inappropriate and should stop, according to the source close to Kelley, who spoke with NBC News on condition of anonymity.

After Kelley alerted the FBI, agents began pursuing it as a possible case of cyber harassment or stalking. “The thought was she was being followed,” the source said.

The anonymous emails continued — sent from multiple alias accounts — and some later ones in the sequence contained references to Petraeus, though not by name, the source said.

I just want to make sure I’ve got this straight.

Broadwell sends catty e-mails to Kelley, who then complains to a friend who happens to be an FBI agent. The agent, forwards the case on to the Cyber Crimes Unit, but then he sends shirtless photos to Kelley, who doesn’t complain about receiving them. The agent then makes such a nuisance of himself he gets barred from the investigation. Then, unable to realize he’s already in the deep end, he contacts a member of Congress to keep the case alive.

Why do I think Kelley complained to the agent between bouts of heavy breathing between the sheets?

Petraeus hoped affair would stay secret and he could keep his job as CIA director

Updated: Monday, November 12, 9:05 PM
**************************************

CIA Director David H. Petraeus did not intend to resign from his position until it became clear that his extramarital affair with his biographer would become public after a federal investigation of his e-mail accounts, according to two longtime military aides who admire the retired general.

In a farewell letter last week to CIA staff members, Petraeus ­described his affair with Paula Broadwell as behavior that is “unacceptable both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” The statement and others from his allies in the days that followed created an impression that he had stepped down of his own volition, and out of a sense of moral obligation.

Petraeus ghostwriter ‘clueless’ to affair

Video:
*******

Monday, November 12, 7:24 PM

My wife says I’m the most clueless person in America.

I never anticipated the extramarital affair between David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, the woman I’d worked with for 16 months on a book about Petraeus’s year commanding the war in Afghanistan. On rare occasions, her good looks and close access would prompt a colleague to raise an eyebrow about their relationship, but I never took it seriously.(More….)

Broadwell sends catty e-mails to Kelley, who then complains to a friend who happens to be an FBI agent. The agent, forwards the case on to the Cyber Crimes Unit, but then he sends shirtless photos to Kelley, who doesn’t complain about receiving them. The agent then makes such a nuisance of himself he gets barred from the investigation. Then, unable to realize he’s already in the deep end, he contacts a member of Congress to keep the case alive.

Why do I think Kelley complained to the agent between bouts of heavy breathing between the sheets?

I think we’re gonna need a bigger clown car.

Time for a little Stealers Wheel, “Stuck in the Middle with You.” “Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right…” Or, cue The Circus Theme Song, or some Benny Hill soundtrack.

Why are they only searching now?

because she has D-I-R-T brotha!!! She’s now the hottest commodity going. She could bring down Obama in one fell swoop and, of course, they have got to get to her.

LOL..

I’m thinking that Broadwell has more dirt on Obama and the CIA and they are scouring her joint to find it. She’s Petraeus source and he is worried that he’s going to end up dead so he leaked it all to her.

That’s the way I’ve been leaning. Whewwwwww……..baby!

What a mess.
