A House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer told The Daily Caller that former CIA Director David Petraeus will not testify before the committee next week. The committee, however, expects to have a CIA witness at its November 15 hearing.

Petraeus was slated to testify about the September 11, 2012 attack that resulted in the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya. His testimony was to come before both the House committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee in closed door hearings.

He unexpectedly announced his resignation Friday, citing an extramarital affair.

CBS News’ Mark Knoller reported on Twitter that Petraeus also will not testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and that acting CIA Director Michael Morrell will testify in his place.

The House and Senate panels could choose to subpoena Petraeus to compel his testimony.

Her biography of Petraeus was titled, “ALL IN!” Hey-yo!

She met Petraeus in 2006 when he spoke at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where she was a graduate student. When she told him about her research interests in counterterrorism and military intelligence, he handed her his card and offered his help. “He really cares about mentoring,” she told the Charlotte Observer.

    You Americans are truly funny.

    Sexual scandal = consensual sex between adults. Why this is anyones business beyond the immediate involved is incomprehensible. Privacy does not exist in your dictionary. It would be rather more worrisome if a man like Petraeus had no interest in sex.

    Anyway, most men are pretty much helpless if a young woman really makes an effort. Our principal brain is tiny.

    OTOH you guys nearly elect a man for President who is a member of a religious sect. Have you guys read the Book of Mormon?

    Keep up the show – it’s hilarious. We here in Europe make a mighty effort – but it is hard keeping up to your level.
