Petraeus mistress had substantial classified data on computer: sources | Reuters
A computer used by Paula Broadwell, the woman whose affair with CIA director David Petraeus led to his resignation, contained substantial classified information that should have been stored under more secure conditions, law enforcement and national security officials said on Wednesday.
The contents of the classified material and how Broadwell acquired it remain under investigation, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to comment publicly.
But the quantity of classified material found on the computer was significant enough to warrant a continuing investigation, the officials told Reuters.
President Barack Obama told a news conference on Wednesday there was no indication so far that any classified information had been disclosed as a result of the scandal.
Obama also said he would refrain for now from judging whether he should have been told earlier than last Wednesday about the probe involving his CIA chief.
