Washington, Mon, 16 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, April 16 (ANI): Former Secret Service agent Dan Emmett has rubbished claims made by some Republicans lawmakers that members of the Secret Service hired prostitutes to potentially blackmail President Barack Obama and endanger his reputation.

US officials are investigating accusations that 11 members of the Secret Service, agents and uninformed officers, and five members of the military had invited prostitutes to their rooms in Cartagena, Colombia, hotel hours before the president's arrival. he congressional committee investigating the matter includes Reps. Peter King, R-N.Y., and Darrell Issa, R-Calif, according to the ABC news.

The committee said the behavior has opened the men to being threatened or blackmailed in the future, possibly to access sensitive information.

Emmett called the suggestion an "incredible reach."

"I spent six years in the CIA after I left the Secret Service and am well familiar with sexual blackmail espionage. It is a tactic, but I just don't see that here," he told ABC News.

The Secret Service, Congress and Defense Department are all investigating the scandal for potential violations of the agency's code of conduct and for risks posed to the president.

If the allegations are proved correct, people involved in the scandal could face possible reprimand or be fired. (ANI)
