Yep, another Barack Obama scandal! The Washington Post actually uncovered this cover-up by the White House. An investigator from the Department of Homeland Security, David Nieland, claims that he was pressured by his superiors to ″withhold and alter certain information in the report of the investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.″ The story centers around the old Secret Service scandal wherein abut two dozen members of the Service and US military hired prostitutes while as part of an advance team for an Obama trip to Columbia back in 2012. As the story broke, the White House resident liar, Jay Carney, answered reporters questions in late April saying that the Obama administration knew nothing about the incident until they read about it in the newspapers. The White House also claimed that none of Obama;s staff were involved. But thanks to Nieland blowing the whistle, we now know that was a lie, too!
As it turns out, a volunteer worker for Obama′s travel team was also involved and hired a prostitute while in Cartagena. Jonathan Dach, a Yale Man, as Thurston Howell III would put it, was the volunteer worker thanks to his daddy being one of Obama′s campaign fund raisers and currently works at HHS. He denied hiring a prostitute but there was a paper trail that he did, as prostitution is legal and documented under Columbian law. When testimony before the U.S. Senate committee investigating the incident was given by DHS acting Inspector General Charles Edwards, he told the senators that any changes to the investigation report would be just part of the routine ′editing process′.
Now comes David Nieland who claims that he was pressured to not include anything about Dach′s involvement as it might embarrass the White House and to delay as much as possible until after the 2012 elections. Nieland says that Edwards had him remove Dach from the report after Edwards had briefed then head of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. Around the same time, the White House Counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler, had also conducted an internal investigation of White House staffers and had concluded that Dach was not involved. Both Napolitano and Ruermmler are on the short list of potential replacements for Eric Holder as Attorney General.
So kudos to The Washington Post and their reporters, Carol D. Leoning and David Nakamura, for breaking the story and to David Nieland for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a cover up by the Barack Obama administration. Once again we have another Obama scandal which clearly shows that the White House deliberately lied about an embarrassing incident and appears to have engineered a cover-up to keep the story off the 2012 campaign trail. As for Jonathan Dach, he now works at the State Department on ′Global Women Issues′, a fitting job for someone who allegedly hires prostitutes while abroad. And here I was going to beat up Obama today on either the Ebola or ISIS-Crisis. With a scandal involving hookers, we might say that this story has ′legs′.
