"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
in June 2012 - months before last year's the Presidential election. Republicans who requested the investigation were also told about it at approximately the same time.
It was easy to miss, hiding in the first sentence. The point is merely that lots of people knew about the investigation, but no one did or said anything about it because you're not supposed to do or say anything about an investigation until it's finished.
There's no need to be overtly hostile, but if you're going to be, you should at least have the courtesy to be correct.
And why would staffers brief the President on something which any action he took would be illegal? There's no upside, especially since knowing about would make him politically vulnerable.

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Everyday we're finding out that more and more people knew and Obama and the Democrats best defense is to admit their President is absolutley detached. Incompetent.
As that Greasy Low Life Axelrod said, the Federal Govt is too big. Really ? And those clowns want to make it bigger ?
I know why you think it's a feasable excuse, because you support his ideology, but don't expect everyone else to be either so blinded or naive.
Of course they told him. He knew immediately of a scandal that could easily get out of hand for him and his party.
They told him as soon as possible so they could start working on strategy's and so they could get their story straight.
Same with Benghazi.
Obama was there the entire time and NO ONE should be so gullible to think otherwise.
When Bush was in office the left invented scandal after scandal, now that legitimate scandal after scandals exist, they try to down play illegal activities and the violation of civil rights by Obama's administration.
It's going to get much worse for Obama, how long are you going to defend the undefensable ?
Soooo... Basically the President is just a figure head and his minions are running the show for him?
Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
