Dem. Senator Praises David Petraeus for National Security Advisor

Speaking on MSNBC Tuesday, Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) praised former CIA Director David Petraeus as a solid pick to replace ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Casey said that he has “always been impressed by [Petraeus’s] ability.”

“General Petraeus has a lot of ability and I think would be the kind of person who could give direct advice, not only because of his security background but also because of his intelligence background,” Casey added.

Petraeus resigned from his directorship at the CIA after reports emerged that he had provided classified information to his mistress.
