Right we're learning new details of what went down inside that Colombian hotel that has now erupted into an international scandal.
One of the escort seeing question is reportedly saying she negotiated one price -- agent then he refused to pay in the morning.
That would dispute erupted over how much he should get police were called.
And as many as eleven agents in ten military service members allegedly brought prostitutes back to this hotel while doing advance work.
Before the president's trade -- our next guest warns the scandal isn't over yet congressman Peter King.
Chairman of the house homeland security committee congressman always good to speak with you these three individual.
Employees of the agency that were fired or forced out of resigned.
Were they the most culpable.
They were the ones that director Mark Sullivan thought the evidence was the clearest -- He -- probably from the start that when he has he feels and enough evidence and a legal basis.
To move against employees you well.
And with these three certainly probably get enough evidence already and that's when you move the way he did as investigation goes forward and more evidence comes out.
I think we can expect to see you move against other of the agents as well.
You think he'll move against.
All eight remaining I mean even if they.
Were complicit in it sort of tangential way the standard here congressman.
Protecting the president should be so very high that any involvement.
Should be enough to merit dismissal.
Again I think good to see the evidence and I'm inclined to agree with you and that's director Sullivan show and he's moving very effectively and very you and being very tough.
So I would trust his judgment as we go forward based on what I know so far so we'll -- but obviously what they did media that put the approach -- could put the president at risk.
It harms -- reputation of the Secret Service and a violates the most basic principles and procedures of the secretary.
Now you've been praising director Sullivan and in fact your words just a moment ago seem to be doing precisely that but I must tell you this isn't the first incident involved mean.
The president's security and safety -- -- questionable the infamous deep -- that's a lot -- Got near the president they crashed into the White House under his stewardship I spoke with your colleague yesterday congressman Randy Forbes.
And he very clearly demanded the resignation.
Of director Sullivan.
Bob should Sullivan resigned.
-- should not let me just like the two things one on this particular incident the 6000 secret service employees were talking about eleven.
And he's moving effectively and quickly which you did within minutes -- finding -- Thursday what happened he moved.
They had investigation going on over the weekend that through yesterday and today -- agents throughout Colombia carry out the investigation so on this particular incident.
He's an outstanding job other than that that's like saying the army chief of staff.
-- should be quiet.
Congressman the groups are totally -- and so why not as important so Lockheed was the fault of the White House -- the White House social secretary and impose itself on the Secret Service.
That was their fault Secret Service -- -- -- of doing things and the new Obama administration wanted to change that they were the ones who was superseding about it I was involving that investigation.
I I know you were but -- you you seem to be saying well it's only eleven people.
That the Brett -- -- this seems to suggest that the this may be a practice of drinking and carousing and so forth.
That easy endemic within the Secret Service isn't.
Senator is very concerned about that or you and does it may be this is.
Just one reported incidence among a myriad of them.
Greg Q were there is -- we have no evidence of others we will be at that if it turns out there's a culture.
That's a different story but for instance now -- all of the chiefs of staff of the military resign.
Because ten military people involved.
That was thank you Camden -- -- staff resigned.
There's ten military I think the worst you can do is -- rush to judgment let's take this case step by step breakfast elements and everything had to do and -- -- -- if it turns out.
That there is a culture -- it turns out that this was condoned in the past that's a different story but I'm saying what Stewart.
Step by step and see what happens.
Well the agents are being drug tested as we understand it that I would be another aspect of this.
Congressman Peter King as always thank you taken a moment particulars.
