The former CIA director General David Petraeus has pleaded guilty to the federal charge of mishandling classified material. He resigned from the CIA in 2012. From Washington, Gary O’Donoghue.
“The case against David Petraeus stemed from an affair he had with his biographer Paula Broadwell. The affair emerged when a friend of Mr. Petraeus complained to the FBI about threatening E-mail she was receiving telling her to stay away from the four-star general. It became clear those E-mails were sent by Mrs. Broadwell. And the agency investigating discovered that classified documents had been removed and retained by General Petraeus. This plea bargain will allow him to avoid an embarrassing high-profile trial, but nevertheless it is a federal conviction and it marks an ignominious end to a glittering career.”
guilty adj. 有罪的；内疚的
