WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he has no evidence that the scandal that ended former Gen. David Petraeus' career had a negative impact on national security.

In his first comments on the scandal, Obama tells a White House news conference that from what he's seen, no classified information was disclosed that would harm national security.

The president spoke five days after Petraeus resigned as head of the Central Intelligence Agency after disclosing he had an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.
