    It would be obnoxious for every Member to bring things like this directly to the Committee or the Congress in general, unmediated by the professional agencies who determine whether something is real or made-up or trivial.  We complain about Issa and now we're complaining that Cantor didn't act like Issa on steroids?

      No, my point is that if Cantor had believed this was worth investigating, he would have at least mentioned it to others on the intelligence committee.  Obviously, he thought it was not worth notice at the time.

      •  And that was a reasonable judgment for him... (1+ / 0-)

        ...to make.  After all, many reasonable people think it's not worth notice even now.

      as a constituent of his and for so very very many other reasons

      However - blaming any of this on Cantor is so far afield I don't even understand what possible convoluted path to get to his door that is attempted to being made here

      Cantor, as his role as Majority Leader of the house, was informed of this - what exactly are people suggesting that he should have done with this info? .... Pass it on to the braying political dogs in the various committees in the house - or pass it on to an independent investigating organization, say ... the FBI? ... or just sit on this information and get accused of a coverup?

      Again, I LOATHE eric cantor - but i can't see how he did anything here but exactly what he should have done
