As shocking new details continue to emerge in the wake of General David Petraeus's resignation, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed a collection of intelligence insiders and political experts all charged with adding perspective to the sex scandal currently dominating the nation's news cycle.
Joining Piers Morgan for a live interview, Michael Mukasey offered his insight into the traditional chain of command within Washington:
"I think there was a protocol in place, about who could talk to the White House, the Attorney General was definitely one of the two people who could under any circumstance, and the deputy Attorney General was another," said the man who himself served as Attorney General under George W. Bush.
"You don't have to wait until an investigation is over and concluded before it has implications for national security as this one did. To have a C.I.A. director under investigation, and knowing about it, is something that I think in and of itself, would have made it necessary to notify the White House, i.e. the President."

With the political dust final settling on the 2012 general election, on Friday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Rick Santorum to bring his candid commentary to the program via a primetime interview.
Having competed against Mitt Romney during the Republican primary, the former Pennsylvania Senator said he would have liked to have seen some more intensity, and a more aggressive approach, from his former rival turned GOP party representative:
"What Mitt Romney, in my opinion, didn't do was go out and vigorously defend the beliefs that he said he espoused and didn't go on the offense," he told Piers Morgan. "When you're playing defense, which is what I believe the campaign was doing and Republicans were doing generally throughout the course of this campaign, you're not going to win."
Three days removed from Barack Obama securing a second term in office, Santorum used his "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to continue his critique of the president's policies: FULL POST
