Journalists Subpoenaed In Petraeus Scandal

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Nine journalists have been issued subpoenas as part of a lawsuit over the Obama administration investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus.

Those subpoenaed Tuesday include current and former reporters and editors at The Associated Press, The Washington Post, the Daily Beast and Fox News.

Jill and Scott Kelley of Tampa, Florida, are suing the federal government over alleged privacy violations. At issue is information about the couple that became public when Jill Kelley was implicated in 2012 scandals involving Petraeus and Marine Gen. John Allen.

The Kelleys sought to question former Defense Department general counsel Jeh Johnson about his conversations with the media. Johnson is now the Homeland Security Secretary.

A judge ruled the Kelleys can’t question Johnson unless they first question the reporters.
