Ronald Kessler, New York Times bestselling author of books about the Secret Service, FBI, and CIA, and notably broke the Secret Service Columbian prostitution scandal, spoke with FNC’s Harris Faulkner Saturday tonight regarding CIA Director David Petraeus resignation from the agency. Kessler said there’s not just one but several scandals going on including the decision was made to hold the resignation until after the election for political purposes.
Per Kessler’s confidential source with the FBI, Ronald wrote the following for Newsmax:
The White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election. His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obama’s ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.
FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.
“The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election,” an FBI source says. “To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.”
In Kessler’s Saturday interview with Harris Faulkner, he addresses the multiple coverups including the case that I’ve been making as to it being impossible for Obama not to have known about the affair until the Thursday after the election:
“There are several cover-ups going on here. One is the claim that the President Obama was not aware of what was going on with the FBI investigation. Simply look at the facts. Is there any way the FBI would launch an investigation on the CIA Director without telling the president? The second cover-up was the fact that the FBI was told to hold off on this until after the election. I was told in early October that the FBI was outraged about this. It started in a very strange way. The FBI came across emails on his military email account in which he referred to doing something under the desk. And there was a misinterpretation that that meant corruption, something under the table. It actually meant sex under the desk.”
