Senator I -- -- -- I'm always glad to be on your program.
Senator you've written a letter to the White House asking for investigation of what investigate he -- there.
It's -- same -- natural extension.
A logical extension of what.
We're worried about with the Secret Service the Secret Service is investigating.
The use of prostitutes by their own agents down -- Columbia.
Okay so you probably know that the Secret Service worked very closely -- some people from the Defense Department that are assigned to the White House.
And work with the communications people -- White House in the advance people to White House.
We need to had -- for shore.
That what went on within the Secret Service.
People that were involved there and prostitutes was any of that shenanigans going on the White House so that's -- purpose of the latter.
I assume you would agree that no one has greater interest in.
Making sure that the White House is.
Is as not involved in the White House itself and and because the president -- means essentially it means that the greatest goal of secret services to protect the president.
Well and of course that's what this is all about a couple things to make sure that the president's properly protected.
In the future is as part of the culture of this secret services.
Is a White House.
Have the same problems.
Is it just isolated incident there hasn't been going on you're you're worried about protection the president and then is there any national security issues involved.
But the White House seems to think they've done enough investing in Atlanta the Secret Service investigate its people.
The military investigate its people and the White House apparently thinks that they have that done happened to investigate their people who -- -- defense team.
Now I know they have announced that today I sent the letter on Friday -- -- Saturday and Sunday to investigate they've come to the conclusion that there are no problems.
Okay the natural follow up of that he has.
Are they going to make it public this administration.
Announced three years ago that there -- be the most transparent.
Any administration in the history of our country.
We are we need to know the results of this investigation.
But I also would -- this set that you could they could've done a perfect job there's nothing wrong I hope there's nothing wrong.
But one of the ways to make sure that there's credibility for everything.
-- is to let the office of inspector general or some independent person.
Have access to would have access to the people answers and questions that they -- Because I think we have every assurance when there's.
-- cooperation between the Secret Service communication people military people advance people between the White House and the Secret Service.
That everything's handled OK and we don't want the mistakes that were made by the Secret Service.
To shore up at the White House because it's the closer you get to the president seems to -- no more of -- problem.
Mean there is it any -- though whatsoever in your mind as to why the White House if they thought anyone on on the White House staff.
An advanced team was -- -- -- complicit with -- give any reason why they act and any incentive -- that I think that to be just the opposite but any incentive to.
Not disclose it.
Well then you get back to what the president has set this standard he's going to be the most transparent administration.
They have a responsibility to make all of this information in this details let it out of the public and let the public.
Make make that judgment but I have.
Suggested that you know what's a good thing to have inspectors general within our agencies in this case would be Homeland Security because that's where.
The civil are -- the secret services house.
To also it we have a parallel investigation just like.
The Homeland Security IG is working.
We have the Secret Service you at all and I think that's pretty important.
I'm also interested.
In you when it comes to the Defense Department investigating.
The Defense Department people.
Not just of people that we've already talked about.
But there are people assigned to the White House.
We have from the Defense Department does seem to me that it's very important there.
But to make sure that the inspector general of the Department of Defense is involved -- that investigation as well because you need the independence.
Of an inspector general's office to give credibility to -- -- -- -- the Defense Department currently invest in the Defense Department on this.
The Secret Service invest in the secrets or some mystery problem -- that -- -- about -- want to inspector general's involvement.
Give any reason to believe that there's anything beyond what what we know I've Willis who want an investigation regarding suspicious -- you.
And all but you see you you know that director of the Secret Service has told us he's going get to the bottom.
-- what I think you have to be concerned about here is.
Is this an isolated incident four over thirteen people a few people in the military.
You making use of prostitutes.
Or is it part of the culture of the organization.
If it's part of the culture of the organization.
Is deep seeded and that's a major problem overcome I've -- -- cultures of the Food and Drug Administration the FBI a lot of other government agencies and my investigations.
And we need to make sure that this doesn't go deeper and if it does go deeper we've got major problems and those major problems involve national security.
They involve the president protection of the president.
And they also involved sort of how.
The world looks at us a little bit in terms of you if we had our Secret Service detail on military now party when that should be protecting the president.
For it's really shows something about the lack of discipline answers to some purpose perhaps.
You know you're absolutely right and you also got.
What has been.
-- for 150 years as far as corporate and clean record -- Further why they break actually through my service like that great sadness now while I don't know and that's why I'm very concerned that it's not part of the culture deeper down.
Well let's say hopefully this is an isolated incidents if it goes deeper and we got major problems -- thanks there -- -- -- -- with --
