EXCLUSIVE: Jill Kelley tells Howard Kurtz she was 'terrified' by Broadwell emails

She's the woman who tipped off the FBI to anonymous emails that led to the downfall of former CIA director David Petraeus.
Jill Kelley gives an exclusive interview to Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast, also the host of CNN's "Reliable Sources" here on CNN.
Here's what we know:

Kelley went to the FBI when she started getting harassing emails that were eventually traced back to Paula Broadwell.
The investigation revealed that Petraeus was having an affair with Broadwell, who wrote his biography "All In."

The FBI also began looking into emails between Jill Kelley and another not-so-famous but high-ranking military leader, General John Allen, the top u.S. Commander in Afghanistan. Those messages described as "potentially inappropriate."

This morning on "Starting Point, Howard Kurtz talks about his exclusive interview with Jill Kelley.
