Transcript for Classified Documents Taken from Alleged Petraeus Mistress' Home
night to get the latest on that washington sex scandal, now going in so many directions. Abc's senior foreign affairs correspondent, martha raddatz, starts us off. Good morning, martha. Reporter: Good morning, george. Paula broadwell has surrounded herself with lawyers and has said nothing since the scandal broke five days ago. But for the first time we got a glimpse of her here in washington, d.C. Overnight, we captured these images of paula broadwell, here inside her brother's home, having a quick dinner and glass of wine. Still silent about the accusations swirling around her. Caught up in the storm, now, the highly-respected general who commands forces in afghanistan, john allen, accused of exchanging potentially inappropriate e-mails with tampa socialite, jill kelly. After the pentagon's dramatic announcement about allen earlier this week, overnight, the defense secretary teamed to be backing off. No one should leap to any conclusions here. General allen is doing an excellent job at isaf. He has my continued confidence. Reporter: An echo of what the white house said tuesday. I can tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. As well as the job he's done in afghanistan. Reporter: Officials tell abc news, that the vast number of e-mails allen exchanged with jill kelly, who sparked the fbi investigation into broadwell and petraeus, show no evidence of any sexual relations. But are friendly and, perhaps, a bit flirtatious. In one note, kelly telling allen, she saw him on tv. He responds, thanks, dear. You're a sweetheart. Meanwhile, david petraeus' sudden departure as cia director, has created lots of questions on capitol hill. Especially that looming issue, the attack in benghazi, on a cia facility there. Some senators still want to question petraeus about what went wrong. I know that we're interested in hearing from him. Probably in front of the intelligence committee, which i also sit on. Reporter: It is possible that petraeus could eventually testify, george. But that will definitely not happen this week. Congress ramping up the questions, even as the fbi continues to investigate possible crimes. And abc senior justice correspondent, pierre thomas, has exclusive details on that. Good morning, pierre. Reporter: Good morning, george. Abc news has learned that paula broadwell, who allegedly had the affair with petraeus, is suspected of storing significant amounts of military document, including classified material, at her home, possibly in violation of federal law. A source familiar with the case tells abc news, broadwell admitted she took the documents from secure government buildings. The fbi demanded that all documents be given back. Monday night when the agents descended on her home, it was a prearranged meeting. And the case is complicated by the fact that broadwell was authorized to see the documents because she was an intelligence officer in the military reserve. Now, broadwell's fate is in the hands of prosecutors. What will prosecutors do? A lot depending on the nature of the documents. These are nervous days ahead for broadwell. What about the fbi agent that jill kelly originally went to. He was taken off the case. Became something of a whistleblower. Sent her pictures of him with his shirt off. Reporter: He has been described as a veteran agent with ten-plus years who has a solid career. He is under fbi scrutiny because he called members of congress to inform them about the petraeus case. That likely violated fbi vid lines, george. Thanks very much.
