Mr. P was tuned into the Benghazi disaster, compare this to reality TV for lack of a better term.
Stevens was meeting CIA uppers and Petreaus didn't know? Satellites were framing this, the situation room in the W.H. was watching the attack unfold, they were pleading more security for days. In the final hours of the attack a General had ordered a counter attack, he was told to stand down.
Stevens was said to be a statesman, the U.S. Ambassador, come on, my oppion he was agency through and through.
P. after years of infidelity all of a suddenly happens to be discovered soon after the Benghazi hit. For muck sake, this gal was part of the upper cluby's, P knew her hubby, family, etc. It's a tight kniit club up there. This was his out, a free pass, this affair could have been revealed long ago, it was an ace in the hole. He didn't fall on his sword, he put an edge on it. If he were a true blue patriotic constitutional die hard why did he bail out.
Just my oppinion.
