eading lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the FBI's handling of the sex scandal that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chair of the Senate intelligence committee, said Sunday that nobody on Capitol Hill knew federal law enforcement officials were investigating Petraeus, and his sudden departure hit "like a lightning bolt" on Friday. "This is something that could have had an effect on national security," Feinstein said. "I think we should have been told." The FBI reportedly uncovered evidence of the affair between the former four-star general and Paula Broadwell, a former Army officer who wrote a Petraeus biography, over the summer while investigating a complaint from a woman who said she had received harassing emails from Broadwell. Law enforcement sources on Sunday identified the woman who allegedly made the claim as Jill Kelley, 37, a friend of Petraeus and his wife, Holly.
