Former CIA director David Petraues says he did not disclose classified information to his mistress.
Petraeus, who revealed that he had an extramarital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell last week, said he did not share unauthorized information with her.
Broadwell served as Petraeus’ archivists during their relationship. She turned over her computer to FBI agents for further investigation.
Military officials explained that in order for her to access classified information, Broadwell would have needed security clearance.
The biographer has publicly spoken about following strict rules while retrieving information for the first book.
In addition to her writing, Broadwell is identified as a military intelligence reservist assigned to West Point. She was promoted to lieutenant colonel in August.
