All Cantor knew...was that some idiot was sending threatening emails to some female citizen. The cops weren’t reacting, so he gave it to the FBI and they did what you’d expect...dig into what was going on. No one knew where this was going, until they unbundled our New York Times reporter’s email account and noticed emails to the general. You can imagine the shock on that technicians face when he finally figured out who she was having an affair with. As for Cantor? I doubt if the FBI ever went back to brief him on anything. He’s probably sitting there and shocked about how a simple request to the FBI went and caused this event to occur.
