Today three more Secret Service agents were shown the door in the Secret Service scandal impacting the White House, but two agents were also cleared of any wrongdoing, according to Fox News.
Let's see, that now makes a total of nine agents leaving the agency, with two or more of them "resigning," one supervisor "retiring" and one agent today getting his national security clearance "revoked."
The other three agents out of the dozen who came under suspicion have been "cleared."
Now if Americans can just find out if anyone in the White House staff was actually involved, which seems highly likely given the military scheduled to be there had members involved too.
Senator Grassley is trying to find out which White House staff members were scheduled to go early and stay at the hotels in question during that time, despite a push from the White House Counsel seeking to avoid an outside inquiry into the matter.
Given that there is already an investigative body looking into the dozen Secret Service agents first named, it makes sense to let the same people check out the White House staff members who went down early that same week--and could have been involved in the scandal, too.
And why should the nine Secret Service agents being dismissed from the government be the only ones part of the prostitution scandal in Columbia to suffer the consequences of their actions? White House employees shouldn't be exempt if the military and SS isn't.
