Members of Congress want to know why the FBI waited until Friday to tell them about the affair that cost the CIA Director David Petraeus his job. Members of Congress say the FBI should have alerted them agents were investigatingPetraeus - before scandal broke on Friday.
FBI officials say they did not notify lawmakers or the White House because no national security issues were involved.
Petraeus stepped down after admitting to an extramarital affair. His alleged mistress is his biographer, Paula Broadwell. General Petraeus was scheduled to testify before Congress this week about the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. His former deputy - and acting CIA director Mike Morell will testify instead. But lawmakers say Petraeus could still be called to testify in the future.
CBS News has learned that General Petraeus visited Libya last month, and called several members of Congress the week before he resigned to give them his assessment of the attack. This all began when The FBI started investigating Petraeus after receiving complaints from a woman who said Broadwell was sending her harassing emails.
