A former spokesman for ex-CIA Director David Petraeus says Petraeus is "truly remorseful" about an affair that led to his resignation Friday.

Steve Boylan, the retired general's former spokesman, spoke to Petraeus on Saturday.

Boylan says Petraeus "knows he screwed up," and is going to try to heal with his family.

An FBI investigation into harassing emails allegedly sent by Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell led to revelations that Petraeus and Broadwell were having an affair. Both are married.

President Barack Obama accepted Petraeus's resignation on Friday.

Members of Congress say they want answers to questions about the affair between CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer that led to the former general's 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.
