Petraeus scandal: When did the White House know?

Pat Buchanan is not alone in wondering if President Obama knew about General Petraeus' affair before Election Day.
Could it be that Obama and the National Security Council were kept ignorant of a grave security risk and a potentially explosive scandal that the Tampa FBI field office knew all about?

By late October, with the FBI, Justice and the White House all in "hear-no-evil" mode, an FBI "whistle-blower" from Florida contacted the Republican leadership in the House and told them of the dynamite the administration was sitting on.

Majority Leader Eric Cantor's office called Mueller, and the game was up. But the truth was withheld until after Nov. 6.
