US weighs criminal charges for Petraeus

Washington: A US official says the Justice Department is weighing bringing criminal charges against former CIA Director David Petraeus over the handling of classified information.

The official says investigators have presented senior-level Justice Department officials such as Attorney General Eric Holder with information on the case to make a decision.

Federal investigators have been looking into whether Petraeus provided classified information to his biographer, with whom he admitted having an affair when he resigned from the CIA in 2012.
