FBI: Petraeus Affair Part of Criminal Probe 12 Nov 2012 The FBI withheld its findings about Gen. David Petreaus's affair from the White House and congressional leaders because the agency considered them the result of a criminal investigation that never reached the threshold of an intelligence probe, law enforcement sources said today. The sources said agents followed department guidelines that generally bar sharing information about developing criminal investigations. The FBI is also aware of its history under former director J. Edgar Hoover of playing politics and digging into the lives of public figures. The FBI's focus was on whether laws were broken, in this case whether federal cyber-harassment statutes were violated.
