Secret Service Scandal Expands Further Into South America, Russia

The U.S. Secret Service scandal is expanding.

Agents are now alleged to have caroused with prostitutes in El Salvador in 2011, Argentina in 2009, and possibly Moscow in the early 2000s.

The Pentagon is investigating. So are the Senate’s Judiciary and Armed Services committees. And the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs is expected to hold hearings next month.

Guest:

  • Ronald Kessler, chief Washington correspondent for Newsmax.com and author of “In the President’s Secret Service.” He broke the Colombia prostitution story.
