It was never up to Cantor. In the first place the FBI knew, the CIA knew, then Obama knew. Cantor is too far down on the list to give your lame-ass deflection any cred. Why do you bother? Do you ever come out in the sunlight, or would you vaporize?
This gives a better and more definitive story:
Cantor's decision to keep Boehner & King uninformed is a big fail. And he should be held accountable by his party for it.Eric Cantor and the Petraeus affair
On October 27, Cantor learned from an FBI employee that an investigation had discovered CIA Director David Petraeus was having an extramarital affair. Cantor did nothing about that information, except to ask his chief of staff, Steve Strombres, to inform FBI Director Robert Mueller, according to ABC News . Four days later, October 31, Strombres notified Mueller. Meanwhile, House Speaker John Boehner and House Homeland Security Committee chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) — two key House members with a need to know — were left in the dark by Cantor.

Cantor and Petraeus had an affair? WTF is going on?
Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
