Paula Broadwell and Jill Kelley, the women linked to the sex scandal that brought down former CIA Director David Petraeus, had close ties to the military community and had apparently visited the White House on separate and unrelated occasions before the scandal broke. Petraeus reed as CIA director last week after acknowledging an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. In briefings Friday with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, the retired four-star general was apologetic and regretful and insisted that his reation was related only to his personal behavior.
Jill Kelley, the Tampa, Fla. Kelley and her family also received a White House tour on the weekend before the Nov. Broadwell, who was writing a book about Petraeus and eventually became his paramour, attended meetings in June and June on Afghanistan-Pakistan policy in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is located in the White House complex, the official said.
The White House visits by Broadwell and Kelley illustrate the wide-ranging access both women enjoyed because of their ties with Petraeus, Gen. John Allen and others in the close-knit military community. The White House official discussed their visits on condition of anonymity because the visitors logs being cited have yet to be made public.
The FBI began an investigation after Kelley turned over anonymous s that had been sent to her and Allen, the top U. Kelley was a friend of both Petraeus and Allen and had become a social liaison between the Tampa civilian community and the military at MacDill Air Force Base.
One anonymous traced to Broadwell warned Allen to stay away from Kelley. FBI agents ultimately found s between Petraeus and Broadwell that led them to believe the two were having an affair.
Largely out of public view in the week since his reation, Petraeus was whisked into private meetings with lawmakers Friday amid the sort of clandestine atmosphere that befits a spymaster. A network of underground hallways was used to smuggle the retired general into a secure room beneath the Capitol to escape a clamorous crowd of photographers and television cameras.
Police closed down entire corridors in the Capitol.
Members of Congress said the arrangements were deed to spare Petraeus further embarrassment. Before the scandal, he famously cultivated personal relationships with journalists and walked through the front door of the Capitol and greeted reporters when visiting Congress. After more than four hours, Petraeus left the Capitol much the way he entered and was seen departing in a two-vehicle motorcade. About 20 minutes later, The Associated Press photographed Petreaus entering his home — one of the only public images of him since he reed.
In separate briefings with members of the House and Senate intelligence committees, Petraeus discussed the September attack on the U. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead. He did not discuss his adultery with Broadwell, except to say that he regretted his behavior and that his departure was unrelated to the deadly violence in Libya.
