Source: FBI Agent Actually Knew Little About Petraeus Investigation

Would probably also like to stop being called "shirtless FBI agent."


The Tampa FBI agent who first learned about a scandal involving then-CIA Director David H. Petraeus never sought to blow a whistle on the case, according to a person close to the agent, but instead made informal comments that were eventually relayed to a top Republican lawmaker.

The account contradicts descriptions of Fred Humphries, identified Wednesday as the agent involved, as a whistleblower who was trying to expose Petraeus's extramarital affair with his biographer and its possible national security risks.
