WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he's withholding judgment on the timing of the revelations that his CIA director was under investigation for a possible national security violation.
The House Intelligence Committee was holding hearings on that very point Wednesday.
The president tells a White House news conference that he doesn't have all the information about the probe involving former Gen. David Petraeus, who resigned as head of the CIA last week after disclosing an affair.
Officials have said that Obama was not told about the investigation until after the election. He says he has "a lot of confidence generally" in the FBI, which is conducting the inquiry.
