Even though Petraeus has stepped down, Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said the retired general should testify about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, "if he has relevant information." Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said it was "absolutely imperative" that Petraeus testify, since he was CIA director during the attack and visited Libya afterward.
Asked by reporters if there was a national security breach with the Petraeus affair, Feinstein said: "We're going to hold an inquiry. We're going to look at things. I have no evidence that there was at this time." She said she expected Petraeus to testify — "if not this week, then another week. That's for sure."
Feinstein said did not believe that either Allen or Petraeus would release classified information.
The FBI looked into whether a separate set of emails between Petraeus and Broadwell might involve any security breach and concluded it did not.
The FBI searched Broadwell's home in Charlotte, N.C., Monday night, with her consent, according to a federal law enforcement official, who requested anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak on the record about the investigation.
The official said the FBI just wanted to make sure there were no classified documents out of government custody.
