WASHINGTON, D.C. ó Members of Congress said they want answers to questions about the affair between CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer that led to the former generalís resignation.

House intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and ranking member Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md., will meet Wednesday with FBI deputy director Sean Joyce, and CIA acting director Michael Morell to ask questions like how the investigation came about, according to a senior congressional staffer who spoke anonymously because he was not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly.

President Barack Obama accepted Petraeusís resignation on Friday.
