As the cheating scandal grows surrounding CIA Director David Petraeus’ affair with Paula Broadwell, her father has come to her defense, saying that the whole story has yet to be revealed and that the “truth will come out.”

General Petraeus resigned on Friday after announcing that he'd cheated on his wife, and Broadwell's father, Paul Kranz, is saying that the affair story may not be the most important issue here and there may be more sordid details that will come out.

“This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Kranz told The New York Daily News about his 40-year-old daughter’s affair with the four star general.

“There is a lot more that is going to come out,” he said. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

Kranz said he was not able to elaborate on what he knows and how it will be revealed, but said he supports his daughter “100 per cent.”

“I hope you understand this is the beginning of a process. I can't say more than that. I couldn't if I wanted to,” he told the MailOnline from his North Dakota home.

Broadwell’s husband’s grandmother also expressed disbelief over the story of her affair with the married General and said many in the family were blindsided by the news.

“They didn’t find out about the affair until they saw it on the news Friday night,” she said.

“Everyone's reaction was shock. We were all shell-shocked.”

As reported, the FBI was investigating emails that Broadwell sent to a second woman that Petreaus was close to and who has been identified as Jill Kelley. The agency tracked the emails back to Broadwell, and then stumbled into thousands of messages sent between her and Petraeus. Some of those messages were sexually explicit, including one now famous message that referenced "sex under the desk."

Broadwell is a married mother of two and a U.S. Army vet who was a researcher at Harvard when she met the General when he spoke at the University. Her biography of her paramour All In: The Education of General David Petraeus came out this February.

Paula Broadwell has not commented on the scandal.
