    Aides Knew of Possible White House Link to Cartagena, Colombia, Prostitution Scandal

    It seems the White House was hip deep in a cover-up of the involvement of one of their own in the Secret Service prostitutes-in-Colombia scandal. The young man is the son of a big Dem donor.

    As nearly two dozen Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired following a 2012 prostitution scandal in Colombia, Obama administration officials repeatedly denied that anyone from the White House was involved.
    But new details drawn from government documents and interviews show that senior White House aides were given information at the time suggesting that a prostitute was an overnight guest in the hotel room of a presidential advance-team member — yet that information was never thoroughly investigated or publicly acknowledged.
    The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts — the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.
    The Secret Service shared its findings twice in the weeks after the scandal with top White House officials, including then-White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler. Each time, she and other presidential aides conducted an interview with the advance-team member and concluded that he had done nothing wrong.
    Meanwhile, the new details also show that a separate set of investigators in the inspector general’s office of the Department of Homeland Security — tasked by a Senate committee with digging more deeply into misconduct on the trip — found additional evidence from records and eyewitnesses who had accompanied the team member in Colombia. . . .

    Pages are also responsible for delivering sensitive documents, and I can't imagine a page wasn't just tempted once to read those documents...

    compared to everything else that's happened to this administration, a 25 year old getting in on the fun with the rest of the gang doesn't seem like such a big deal

    As with Watergate, it's not the act, it's the cover-up that injures the administration.
