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.

The official was not authorised to discuss the investigation by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The New York Times reported yesterday that prosecutors had recommended to Holder that Petraeus be charged.

A lawyer for Petraeus declined to comment last night, as did a spokesman for the Justice Department.
