Congressional hearing on Secret Service sex scandal to be held on May 23
Washington, May 14 (ANI): The chairmen of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committees, which are probing the US Secret Service scandal, have said that Congressional hearing on the scandal will be held on the 23 May.
Joe Lieberman, Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman, said that the director of Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, and the acting inspector general of Department of Homeland security, Charles Edwards, would be present during the hearing.
According to ABC News, Lieberman said that the hearing would address three questions: one, if the inspector general satisfied with the investigation of what happened in Cartegena?
Second, were there indications before the Colombian scandal of behavior by Secret Service agents off duty, on assignment, that should have been a warning that this was coming?
And third, what will Sullivan do to make sure that such incidence does not occur again?
Peter King, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has reiterated his support for Sullivan and said that the incident that implicated at least 12 Secret Service agents was isolated.
King also declined to meet the prostitute at the center of the scandal, he said: "My office got a call from the lawyer from the prostitute ... asking to come and meet with me in Washington. We're not going to do that. I think that would just add to a circus atmosphere."
On the hearing of the scandal, King said: "This is a very, very outstanding agency, the Secret Service. We have to not tear down their reputation while getting at the truth of what happened". (ANI)
