Just because Kennedy didn't get balckmailed doesn't mean he didn't leave himself open to it... remember for a little while him and a mafia boss were fucking the same chick. Not exactly a risk-averse scenario.

Washington Post

" The Washington Post fills in some more details on what led to Petraeus's Spyfall, and it looks like it's getting a little Fatal Attraction-y up in here.

What we knew: the FBI got involved because someone, presumably Broadwell, had "sought access to [Petraeus's] email" account, and the bureau was worried that he had been hacked, or otherwise compromised. This is a big ol' problem, because I can think of lots of rogue states that would love to poke around through the CIA Director's Gmail.

What we know now: the investigation initially had nothing to do with Petraeus, but was rather a routine harassment investigation. Broadwell had been sending abusive emails to another woman, one she considered a romantic rival for Petraeus's affections, and she had done it from Petraeus's account. From there, the FBI went through his emails, and discovered the affair."
