Investigators have determined that none of the 12 women Secret Service employees brought back to their hotel rooms after a night of heavy drinking in Cartagena, Colombia, had connections to drug cartels or terrorist organizations, The Washington Post reported.

So far investigators have interview all but two of the 12 women involved.

The Secret Service had 175 agents and officers in Colombia and 135 stayed at the Hotel Caribe, site of the prostitution scandal. The agents were in Cartagena to prepare for President Barack Obama’s trip to the Summit of the Americas last month, the Post reported.

Congress and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating the scandal. “We’re going to use this as a base to operate from, but we’re also waiting for those statements from the women,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Peter King, R-N.Y., told the Post. “That will fill in a lot of the gaps.”
