Cantor & FBI "whistle-blower" [View all]

FBI whistle-blower contacted Eric Cantor on David Petraeus affair
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor spoke to an FBI whistle-blower two weeks ago who accused then-CIA Director David Petraeus of having an extramarital affair and potentially jeopardizing the security of classified information, according to a news report.

Cantorís chief of staff, Steve Stombres, later spoke with FBI officials to pass on the accusations from the whistle-blower, the New York Times reported on Saturday night.

The Obama administration has been beleaguered with leaks and in June of this year Holder started an investigation into where some of these leaks are coming from.

This article from Politico refers to the FBI agent as a whistle-blower but this wasn't whistle-blowing at all--he was leaking information to Rep. David Reichert (R-Wash.) of all people. Why didn't the agent go directly to his boss--did the agent truly fear being fired for knowing this information? And how did this agent come across this information? Why is this agent leaking information to Rep. David Reichert (R-Wash.) of all people? After Reichert informed Cantor, why didn't Cantor inform the White House?

It seems obvious to me after reading about this why all these leaks are happening. It seems as though there are people within the government and law enforcement that are attempting to undermine Barack Obama's presidency and doing so by leaking information--whether it be classified or sensitive. This agent should be fired for what he did and if Cantor didn't feel the need to share this information with the White House, what other information has been leaked to him that isn't being passed on? The teabaggers, now that they've lost their bid to get Pres. Obama fired, need to start putting country before party. Their obstinence and obstruction make them look like the unpatriotic, sore losers they are.
