FBI agents visited the home of former CIA Director David Petraeus in a Washington, D.C., suburb on Friday, two sources with knowledge of the visit told NBC News.

USA Today reports that the agents conducted an interview with the retired four-star Army general, but according to NBC News, it is unclear whether Petraeus was at his home in Arlington, Va., when the agents arrived.

Petraeus resigned as chief of the CIA in November when it was revealed that he was having an extra-martial affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

The FBI has been investigating allegations that Broadwell received or improperly stored classified information while gathering content for her book. The investigation has been slowly underway for months, and officials tell NBC that the FBI visit Friday does not indicate any new developments in the unresolved case.

Before being name head of the CIA in 2011, Petraeus led the U.S. and U.N. forces in Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011. In late March, he made his first public appearance since stepping down, where he expressed his “deep regret” for the scandal.

“I am also keenly aware that the reason for my recent journey was my own doing,” Petraeus told ROTC candidates at the University of Southern California. “So please allow me to begin my remarks this evening by reiterating how deeply I regret—and apologize for—the circumstances that led to my resignation from the CIA and caused such pain for my family, friends and supporters.”
