The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the FBI Agent whose investigation led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair had to be pulled off the case — because he sent shirtless photographs of himself to one of the women involved.
Petraeus’s affair became public after his alleged mistress, Paula Broadwell, allegedly sent threatening emails to a woman she may have suspected of stealing Petraeus’s affections, Jill Kelley.
Kelley was also allegedly the lucky recipient of the shirtless images of the lawman. The Journal reported that the agent allegedly sent the photographs to Kelley.
The New York Times, however, reported that the agent sent the shirtless photographs to Kelley before the Petraeus incident, when he had “previously pursued a friendship with Ms. Kelley.”
