Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was told about David Petraeus’s affair in October, a spokesman for Cantor told CNN. Cantor spoke with a whistleblower about the details of the alleged affair between the former general and his biographer Paula Broadwell, which was uncovered by an FBI investigation. A congressional aide has said that the House and Senate intelligence committees were not told about the affair or the FBI investigation until Friday.
