Racy texts and emails, high-level officials and a jealous lover. There are more twists and turns being uncovered today following last Friday's resignation of CIA director and former General David Petraeus due to an extramarital affair. Now the man who replaced him as top commander in Afghanistan, is now under investigation.
FBI agents are poring through thousands of communications between General John Allen and Jill Kelley, the woman who allegedly sparked the Petraeus probe when she complained about threatening emails from Paula Broadwell.
Meanwhile there are questions about the FBI. Why didn't they inform the President, or leaders of Congress about the investigation until last week? Why did the FBI agent who initiated the investigation after Jill Kelley complained about harassment email Kelley pictures of himself, standing bare-chested?
On NBC's Today Show this morning, Republican Congressman Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said the story sounded like a Hollywood movie, or a trashy novel.
With more on this, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tom Ricks, whose new book "The Generals" touches on Petraeus's career.
