1) FBI received the complaint about the harassing emails in May 2012, not June-August.
2) We do not know when Dave Reichert was contacted by the FBI employee, but it was certainly before October 31, because
3) Cantor and his people talked with the FBI employee on Saturday, October 27. Cantor contacted the FBI on Wednesday, October 31. Cantor's office explains the delay as resulting from Hurricane Sandy, which left federal offices "closed" for Monday October 29 and Tuesday October 30.

I'm sure they would appreciate a more precise timeline.

I posted their information because I had not seen any timeline at all for how this mess came to light. That Broadwell met Rove about the same time the affair ended is very interesting. That Broadwell's use of the correct information from the Fox News smear of Benghazi dovetailed with Rove's use of the smear is extremely interesting.

If a correct timeline is available, there may be much more we can infer from it.

Not sayin' the crazy anti-Muslim "movie" was intended as part of a FoxRovian October Surprise but when was that piece of trash put online, when did Fox start hyping it and when did the predictable riots over it start in the Mideast?
