carver - The FBI had been alerted that his mistress may have had access to his emails and possibly classified information. They started a targeted intercept which is different to the link that you have posted.
Never having being married I may be way off base, but that younger woman is much cuter than his wife, so given any encouragement you can see why he would stray.
I used to see it all the time in the workforce at the factory. A large proportion of married people didn't seem very keen on their partner anymore. And affairs were frequent, usually ending without any trouble. Interestingly, women seem to have more affairs than men. But men are more likely to get caught, as wives notice more.
"that younger woman is much cuter than his wife, so given any encouragement you can see why he would stray."
There you have it in a nutshell! It would seem that no-matter what a mans position, nor how much he has to lose. The lure of the younger more attractive woman is like a siren call to (most?) men.
Also younger women who would in the ordinary state of affairs not look twice at some of the men that they eventually have sexual relationships with ( John Prescott, Bernie Ecclestone et al) are attracted to these men because of their power or their money, or both.
Is the urge in men to have sex so overwhelming, that all men given the opportunity would take the risk and be unfaithful if presented with the chance to have sex with a beautiful younger woman, regardless of what the probable consequences may be?
His mistress is reportedly the woman who co-wrote his biography and was embedded (an unfortunate word as it turns out) with him in Afghanistan from for a year from Jul 2010 to Jul 2011. Working in close proximity away from home may have more to do with it than looks.

Do you really believe that?! Look at the pictures again, If the roles were reversed and the reporter had been his wife and his wife the reporter, can you honestly say you think he would have had the affair?
