White House Staff brought three prostitutes back to their rooms at the Hilton in Columbia earlier this year, according to multiple "law-enforcement and congressional sources." Perhaps the Secret Service are finally sick of being scapegoats for the Obama camp.
The story broke last night on Fox News, and not surprisingly, has not received much attention from the mainstream media.
In April, Senator Charles Grassley requested details from the White House about an "internal administration investigation" into the possibility that the Advance Staff from the White House were involved. CNN reported at the time that the request was dismissed by Democrats as "politically motivated."
Apparently, an overdue Inspector General's report may reveal the involvement of two White House advance team members and is being awaited by Federal law enforcement personnel and a Congressional Committee.
"Obviously we're worried the draft version of the report -- what the DHS IG investigators found on the ground in Cartagena -- is going to get changed and edited before the final version gets out," said a Secret Service source with knowledge of the IG's initial findings.
According to a high-ranking Secret Service Official, "We knew very early that White House staffers were involved." If true, it means that throughout the time the mainstream media was gleefully reporting this story, they only got the half of it. At the time, despite the claim from the Secret Service Official, Jay Carney denied involvement by anyone in the White House and pointed fingers solely at the Secret Service.
Of course, it is all speculation at this point, as there are unnamed sources and the final report has not yet been released. One cannot help to speculate, if the story turns out to be true - how the night unfolded. Were Secret Service staff assigned to the advance White House personnel? Did they just go along for protection and then become scapegoats? More likely, bad behavior was shared by all. Either way, the fiasco does not inspire confidence in the White House, or the Secret Service.
