Skip to comments.Republican House Leader Eric Cantor covered up for Obama Regime

In late October, an FBI agent and whistleblower brought a story of possible Bureau corruption to Republican House Majority Leader, Eric Cantor. It was a story of Obama Regime operatives deliberately sacrificing the national security interests of the United States for the presidents political gain.
And what did the Republican house leader do with that information which10 days before the electioncould have shown that Barack Obama placed his own political advantage above the security of the nation? Why naturally he took the story to just one personObama appointee, FBI Director Robert Mueller, the very man who would have been responsible for the betrayal of those security interests in the first place!
On October 27th, Tampa FBI field agent Fred Humphries contacted US Representative David Reichert and told him that the FBI was dragging its feet in an investigation of possible national security leaks. Reichert directed Humphries to the far more politically powerful Eric Cantor who, along with staff members, met with Humphries.
The investigation had been prompted by Humphries when family friend Jill Kelley told the agent that she had received numerous emails which she considered threatening. Humphries took the story to Tampa FBI office higher-ups and the investigation led to Paula Broadwell, mistress of General David Petraeus.
Though the investigation had begun in late spring, little had transpired by October and Humphries began to suspect that FBI officials were deliberately delaying and covering up in order to spare Barack Obama and the administration any political embarrassment. After all, Obama had put Petraeus in charge of the CIA, the most important, sensitive information gathering agency in the government. The sudden, public explosion of an FBI investigation which included a sex scandal and possible national security leaks connected to the presidents man at the Agency would not have helped the Obama campaign.
Most importantly, as a result of his actions, Petraeus had become a prime target for blackmail, given his status as CIA Director and former commanding general in the Middle East. Could he have been passing restricted material to Broadwell or others? Clearly it was vitally important that the FBI find out!
After meeting with Humphries, Cantor and his staff decided they were unable to act on the information [Humphries] was giving them because they doubted his credibility. Well dont United States congressmen have the ability to check on the credibility and background of an FBI agent? Cantor would have discovered that Humphries had single-handedly foiled a terror plot and been commended for his service to the nation and the American people. But the congressman doubted his credibility. Funny, Cantor didnt doubt the credibility of Obama Administration operative Robert Mueller. (1)
And what did FBI Director Mueller do with the Humphries-supplied information he received from Eric Cantor on October 31st? He waited one full week until November 6th, Election Day, to [meet with] James Clapper, the director of national intelligence and David Petraeus immediate supervisor We have now learned that the House Judiciary Committee has written to Robert Mueller to ask why it took him a week to come forward with the information that Frederick Humphries had given him. (Humphries through Eric Cantor, but Humphries nonetheless!) (1)
So a Republican congressman and House leader had been given information which might have stopped the Obama campaign cold, causing massive embarrassment and difficulty for the man Cantor himself had accused of instituting an imperial presidency, mismanaging U.S. foreign policy and the war on terrorism and covering up what really happened when four Americans were killed in Benghazi (2)
But rather than act in the best interests of the American people by making Humphries story public, by going to Mueller Cantor put the agents career in jeopardy and provided yet another target for the liberal media and the Obama Regime.
It seems Republican cowardice and stupidity grow with each passing year.
Diogenese in looking for an honest man did not walk the halls of Congress. The results would have been the same! Finding Courage is becming even more difficilt so do not waste your time looking for it in Congress.
Cantor is a cowardly turncoat. Israel can thank him for helping to keep Obama in office.
Nah, someone got to Cantor, convinced him that national security or some such thing was at stake. It wouldn’t surprise if Romney know of this as well, but kept a lid on it.
This is a huge dance being orchestrated by obama, and I don’t think we’ve begun to get a whiff of what’s really at the heart of it.
Every time since Reagan that Republicans have had an overwhelming victory at the ballot box our worthless leaders squandered it all, frittered it away and stabbed us in the back. Boehner, Cantor, et. al are only the latest examples. During the mid term primaries I am voting against every single Republican incumbant.
“...national security or some such thing was at stake.”
I’m willing to consider blackmail....
Care to speculate as to what could be worse for the National security than Obama? I think your RomneyHate is clouding your judgement.
What a moron. A man in a who is one of the leaders of a political party that doesn’t seem to understand politics.
They are as much to blame as the idiots who voted for this a##clown. The GOP regime lost the presidency 2 times to a street agitator who is nothing more than a jesse jackson or al sharpton. This in it self should tell you something. Its your turn to be president didnt work. These fools need to go if they want thier party to survive.
Since the news did become public, at least according to Rasmussen, Obama's approval rating has gone up. By October 27, the Dems had likely already built their lead with early and mail-in voting. Why direct fire at Cantor ? The 1000% conservative, tea party claimant Mourdock did more to ensure the implementation of Obama's leftist agenda than Cantor could have ever dreamed of.
Robert Mueller is a Bush appointee.
Aid, comfort and weapons to an enemy. The players.
Because stopping blue dog Joe Donnelly from becoming a US Senator is more important than ridding the country of a corrupt socialist President...right.
They all seem to be part of the same cabal.
Not many choices in this ~ what would you do?
The damage that Cantor could have done to Obama is iffy at best, very unlikely in all probability. But, if the Dem IN Senator stands against his party when Obama makes a Supreme Court nomination , I’ll gladly make a Freepathon contribution in your name.
Horse hockey. Broadwell was a Lieutenant Colonel reservist in Army Intelligence with a security clearance. So, if she had classified data on her home PC, where is the Court Martial, or the media's mention of a forthcoming one?
Guys like Cantor and Romney think that at the end of the day, we’re all on the same side, all Americans. I disagree.
I think obama is the enemy and I’m not exaggerating that. I think he is equal to al qaeda in terms of his desires to destroy America.
So I think guys like Cantor and Romney dance the we’re all Americans dance by allowing obama to lead.
There is no better explanation. Otherwise, care to tell me what you think obama has over Cantor that shut him up? Closet homo? Felony theft? What exactly?
Depends - reporting it to the FBI and knowing that it would be kept under wraps instead of seeing the light of day is more of a cop-out and hand-washing with the fall-back claim that he "took appropriate action". "Following the book" only works as an appropriate measure if everyone follows the same book. The FBI and CIA are politically compromised agencies.
I think she is a Major (O4).
