Broadwell sighted at brother's D.C. house Tuesday night

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - For the first time since the Paula Broadwell scandal broke, cameras have caught glimpses of her at her brother's house in Washington, D.C.

Eyewitness News has been at her Dilworth home for days, but she's told neighbors she's at an "undisclosed location" with family and would be out of touch for a while. On Tuesday night, the ABC News in Washington recorded video of Broadwell standing near a window.

The video clearly shows Paula Broadwell -- the alleged mistress of former CIA director General David Petraeus -- drinking and eating at her brother's house.

Eyewitness News did not see Broadwell's husband or her children in the video, so it's not clear whether they are at the house. Broadwell has texted and e-mailed friends saying she's with "family."

The first sighting of Broadwell happened less than 24 hours after nearly a dozen FBI agents searched her Dilworth house late Monday night.

After a four-hour search, the agents seized a computer and boxes of evidence.

TIMELINE: David Petraeus affair scandal

"We should not leave any doubt whatsoever if any classified information was possessed by her," said Chris Swecker, former FBI assistant director, who is retired and is not directly involved with the case.

Swecker said Broadwell appeared to have inside knowledge about the September 11th attack on the consulate in Libya, and that's troubling from a national security standpoint.

At a recent speech in Denver, Broadwell said: "I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner. And they think the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back."

Swecker believes those comments led the Bureau to act quickly.

"That was the whole reason for the search warrant that was executed [Monday] night," he said. "I mean, first of all, it's not often that you execute that kind of search warrant at night. So I think that the warrant was put together quickly, and they're just running this whole issue of classified information being possessed or passed."

Eyewitness News is still keeping an eye on her home here in case any other family members show up.

Broadwell apparently dropped her driver’s license in a D.C. park.

ABC News reported a jogger found the license and turned it into police, who then notified the FBI.

It is not clear exactly when the license was found or how long it had been missing.
