Will Petraeus Become Secretary Of State?

President-elect Donald Trump continues his search for a new U.S. secretary of state, with his focus on former CIA director David Petraeus, who came under fire in 2012 for admitting he shared classified information with his mistress. Trump is scheduled to meet Patraeus on Monday at Trump Tower, in a new round of interviews. Last year, Patraeus was fined $100,000 and sentenced to two years probation "for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified information." Of those being considered for the position, one source says Petraeus and Mitt Romney are favored by the Republican Party, who want a candidate with "gravitas" who can unify the party.
