If President-elect Donald Trump chooses retired four-star Gen. David Petraeus as secretary of state, the former military commander would have 72 hours to give his probation officer a heads-up about the new gig.

The notification is just one of the legal strings binding Petraeus as part of his April 23, 2015, probation for giving his mistress classified information, USA Today's Brad Heath reported Wednesday, tweeting out the court document describing the restrictions.

 

 

 

"The defendant shall not leave the Western District of North Carolina without the permission of the Court or probation officer," the document states, adding: "Travel allowed for work as approved by U.S. probation office. The defendant shall notify the probation officer within 72 hours of any change in residence or employment."

Other strictures would subject Petraeus to warrantless searches, and allow his probation officer access to review his computer and phone data at any point in time until the end of his sentence, according to the judgment, The Hill reported.

"The defendant shall submit his person, residence, office, vehicle and/or any computer system including computer data storage media, or any electronic device capable of storing, retrieving, and/or accessing data to which they have access or control, to a search, from time to time, conducted by any U.S. Probation Officer and such other law enforcement personnel as the probation officer may deem advisable, without a warrant," the judgment stated, per The Hill.

Petraeus paid a $100,000 fine and received two years' probation as part of a plea deal in the felony case stemming from his decision to give author Paula Broadwell diaries containing classified information, including the identities of covert officers, while she worked on a book about him.

Petraeus is on Trump's short list to become the nation's top diplomat, along with Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker.
