(WASHINGTONTIMES) — Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani joined a chorus of Republicans questioning the timing of Thursday’s sudden resignation of CIA chief David Petraeus.

The former GOP presidential nominee, in an appearance Friday night on Fox News, said the Petraeus resignation is the latest example of the Obama administration’s “suppression” of information.

“Now we’re going to have a hearing next week, and the man who knows the facts, David Petraeus — he’s the only man who can really tell us what the CIA knew, what they did, why they did it, how they did it — he’s not going to testify. This is a very convenient way to get the administration out of a very very difficult situation,” Mr. Giuliani said on Greta van Susteren’s show.
