The official story for the shafting of General Petraeus is that:
Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus resigned after a probe into whether someone else was using his email led to the discovery that he was having an extramarital affair, according to several people briefed on the matter.
A Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into use of Mr. Petraeus’s Gmail account led agents to believe the woman or someone close to her had sought access to his email, the people said.
All emails directly to and from Google’s server are encrypted, unless they pass through a non google server. But they are kept forever in the clear on Google’s servers, and searched by the world’s greatest AI. So the only entity that could suspect that someone else was using his email is Google, which would normally react by automatically or semi automatically contacting general Petraeus by phone, not the FBI.
So, looks like Google ratted him out
And since when do government officials lose their jobs for extramarital affairs? Looks to me that someone wanted to get rid of General Petreaus, perhaps to replace him with someone even further left, and asked Google for whatever dirt they had on him, and an extramarital affair was the best they could come up with.
