Pursuant to the Order of Judge Cummings in the FOIA Suit, several videos of Agents in the Colombia hotel were produced. I previously posted 6 of these videos. Here are more:
In addition to the fact that 11 Secret Service agents brought prostitutes back to their rooms, the documents reviewed thus far establish:
(1) It wasn’t just the 11 Secret Service agents who brought prostitutes back to their hotel rooms. There were 22 federal employees involved with prostitutes in May of 2012 in advance of the President’s visit to Colombia. Eleven were members of the Secret Service, and 11 were members of the military.
(2) Some of the Secret Service agents denied knowing that the women brought back to their rooms were prostitutes. Others admitted that they knew they were prostitutes. However for any agents to deny that they knew the women were prostitutes seems quite disingenuous. As you watch the videos it is obvious that the women knew the routine upon entering the hotel. They each approached the front desk and produced some type of ID that was left with the hotel. They registered at the hotel, and the hotel charged each agent with an “overnight” fee for the prostitute. Thus it seems that no man could watch this routine, and not realize that the woman with him was a prostitute.
Moreover, the DHS/Secret Service records include an interview of hotel employees who explained how they knew whether an “over-night” fee should be charged. The hotel employee explained that they could tell simply based on the attire of the women, and the time of night they entered the hotel that they were prostitutes.
(3) At least some of the “overnight fees” seem to have been charged to the rooms, which would indicate to me that tax payers paid for the agents to sleep with prostitutes.
(4) At least three agents awoke to witness, or discovered that, the prostitute that had been brought back to their room was,or had, gone through their possessions. At least three were missing money, or the prostitutes were looking for money. If the agents had confidential information regarding the President’s trip to Colombia, the prostitutes could have easily accessed that information while the agents slept, or were passed out.
As I have a chance to review more records, I’ll update my report.
