Back in 2012 you might recall that the Secret Service got caught up in a prostitution scandal during a Presidential visit to Cartagena, Colombia. Now we find out an even greater truth about the scandal. A White House aide and the son of an influential Democrat was also caught up in the pros scandal but Obama covered it up and pressured the Inspector General to ignore the facts.
The White House aide is named Jonathan Dach. He had the Secret Service deliver prostitutes to his hotel room during the visit. White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler “investigated” Dach but her entire “investigation” amounted to “asking” Dach if he was guilty. He said no and they left it at that despite that the Secret Service had presented a mound of evidence to the contrary.
Ruemmler has even been quoted as saying that she wanted to stop any investigation cold.
One senior administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information, said Ruemmler believed it would be a “real scandal” if she had sent “a team of people to Colombia to investigate a volunteer over something that’s not a criminal act…. That would be insane.”
Then, when members of the Inspector General’s investigative team balked at this characterization of Dach’s involvement by White House staffers and when the IG bristled at the White House demands that the investigation be delayed until after the 2012 elections, Obama had members of the team put on administrative leave as punishment.
The Post found that several other White House based staffers also had prostitutes.
The Post reviewed copies of the hotel logs for Dach’s stay, which showed that a woman was registered to Dach’s room at 12:02 a.m. April 4 and included an attached photocopy of a woman’s ID card. Through his attorney, Dach declined to discuss these details as well.
Hotel staff members in Cartagena told federal investigators that they had determined Dach was one of three guests at the Hilton who had additional overnight guests registered to their rooms, federal records reviewed by The Post show. The other two were a military staffer stationed at the White House and another Secret Service agent.
The records reviewed by The Post list three names — one of which is redacted and identified only as a White House travel-team member. Two government officials who have seen an unredacted version separately confirmed that Dach is the travel-team member listed.
All this evidence was ignored by both White House Counsel Ruemmler and the IG investigating the prostitution scandal and none of it was included in the reports. Yet the newspaper was able to find this information with ease.
This is all yet another example of Obama covering up the facts and lying to the American people about the rot inside his fetid administration.
