Read Washington Post report below...
More questions:
Who else the Congress besides congressmen Reichert and Cantor knew the Petraeus
investigation before became public? How many congressional staffers were informed? What roles
did they play deciding who inform about it? What were their communications among themselves
and with others outside their offices any? Did any them discuss the matter with anyone the
Romney-Ryan campaign?
Why was Cantor intent informing FBI Director Mueller the existence FBI investigation
that was already resolved? Cantor would have been keenly aware that his referral put Mueller
notice that the investigation could not contained, indeed, was already known, and put pressure
him tell James Clapper and make public soon possible.
What were the internal discussions between Cantor and his staff his referral Mueller?
Did Cantor refer the matter Mueller order punish the rogue FBI agent, who informed Reichert
and Cantor? not, why not?

Did Cantor understand that the FBI agent was acting illegally? that why did not leak the matter the press and instead referred Mueller transparent effort pressure him?
Did Cantor inform Speaker Boehner? Did Cantor inform Congressman Mike Rogers, chair the
House Intelligence Committee? Why did Cantor keep them the dark? What discussions did
have with his staff others about who not inform, well who inform?
When Mueller learned the illegal leak Cantor did launch internal investigation? Was the FBI
Inspector General informed? there such investigation? not, why not?
Was the supposedly rogue FBI agent, described the Washington Post motivated his worldview, acting
alone? Did discuss the investigation with any individual either inside outside the bureau before wentto Reichert
and Cantor?
Disclosure espionage investigation felony. Will grand jury empaneled the Justice
Department?
When will Senator Patrick Leahy, chair the Judiciary Committee and former FBI agent, begin
investigation this matter?

What remains unclear why, after was decided that criminal charges would not filed, the FBI informed Clapper
about the investigation. Another question why the notification was made Election Day about case the Justice
Department had declined pursue weeks earlier. some point during the summer, the Tampa FBI agent whom Kelley had first approached for help was taken off the
investigation. Frustrated and concerned that inquiry into what thought may possible national security breach
had not progressed, got touch with the office Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.). Reichert passed the information House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.). was contacted F.B.I. employee concerned that sensitive, classified information may have been compromised and
made certain Director Mueller was aware these serious allegations and the potential risk our national security,
Cantor said statement.
Cantor contacted FBI Director Robert Mueller Ill Oct. 31, and week later Clapper told Petraeus needed
resign. dont know would have taken this course without Cantor, person close the inquiry said.
