Rep. Peter King, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, talked to numerous news outlets and revealed several details about the investigation. He tells the Associated Press that “close to” all of the 11 agents are believed to have brought women who were “presumed to be prostitutes” back to their hotel rooms. King also tells the New York Times that the suspended service members were also suspected of taking women to their hotel rooms, although the Defense Department refused to confirm that.
The scandal that has overshadowed President Obama’s attendance at a regional summit in Colombia keeps widening and now involves the military. The 11 agents who were put on administrative leave Saturday allegedly brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms, reports the Washington Post. On Saturday, the Defense Department said five military service members staying at the same hotel were suspended for breaking curfew and unspecified “inappropriate conduct,” reports the Wall Street Journal.
