Feinstein: It’s my intention to talk with Petraeus

(CNN) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Senate Intelligence Committee chair, says that it is her intention to talk with former CIA Director David Petraeus regarding the circumstances that led to the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, the Democratic Senator from California says she believes that he will testify on the matter.

“This ties in to his trip that he made just before all of this broke to some Middle Eastern countries including Libya” Feinstein said. “I think he’s a responsible person and I believe he will come.”

Petraeus, a retired four-star general, resigned Friday from his post at the CIA after acknowledging an affair with a woman later identified as his biographer, Paula Broadwell. His resignation came just days before he was to testify to Congress on the September 11 attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

The full interview airs at 4 p.m. ET on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”
