Jill Kelley Visited the White House 3 Times This Year — Including 5 Days Before Petraeus Resigned
The Florida socialite who sparked the FBI investigation that ultimately led to David Petraeus’ resignation as CIA director visited the White House three times this year, including once just days before Petraeus stepped down.
“Jill Kelley visited the White House complex three times, once for a tour with her family and children and twice for courtesy meals at the White House mess with her sister and a White House staffer who met the Kelley family while visiting MacDill Air Force Base,” a White House official told Politico.
According to the Associated Press, the visits occurred during the past three months — a timeframe that overlaps with when the FBI was conducting its investigation. Politico reported Kelley had breakfast in the White House staff dining hall on Sept. 28 and Oct 24. and took the tour on Nov. 4 — five days before Petraeus resigned citing an extramarital affair.
Kelley contacted an FBI friend in June over harassing emails she was receiving from an unknown sender, later found to be Paula Broadwell, the co-author of a biography of Petraeus. The FBI subsequently determined Broadwell and Petraeus were having an affair. It was also discovered that Kelley had been exchanging allegedly inappropriate emails with Gen. John Allen, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
On Friday, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn released a series of emails he had received from Kelley, including one sent early Wednesday claiming she’s been the target of “threats,” ABC News reported. In the email, Kelley wrote that she has been “receiving threats all night, by people that now have my cell phone number” and said Tampa police released a 911 call she made over the weekend about trespassers.
“I’m scared and I cannot believe what my City -in which I have contributed so much of my love, time, money and leadership, has now done to me and my innocent family,” Kelley wrote.
