U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday that newly resigned CIA head David Petraeus might be called in to testify in a Senate inquiry regarding the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
Feinstein told “Fox News Sunday” that the Senate Intelligence Committee, which she chairs, may ask Petraeus about Benghazi, adding, “I think that’s up to the committee.”
Petraeus, a decorated four-star general, resigned last week after it was revealed that he was involved in an extramarital affair, which he confirmed was true.
Feinstein described the situation of Petraeus leaving office under such circumstances as “a heartbreaker.” She said that the timing of his resignation had nothing to do with the investigation into the assault on Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead.
She added, “My biggest concern is, there are literally hundreds of threat warnings in the material that has been accumulated,” and she wondered why nothing was done to address security concerns.
