Ex-Secret Service Agent: White House Protects Favorites

Tuesday, 14 October 2014 02:33 PM

A prostitution scandal allegedly involving the son of a deep-pockets Democratic contributor shows the White House is all too willing to throw some federal workers under the bus while protecting its favorites, according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino.

"This is just amazing," Bongino said Monday on the "Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"You're not safe if you're a government employee from this administration … I mean seriously."

The Washington Post reports that during a 2012 trip in which Secret Service agents were caught with prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, one allegedly may have been a guest in the hotel room of presidential advance-team member Jonathan Dach.

The Post reports the White House knew about the alleged infraction but that it was "never thoroughly investigated or publicly acknowledged."

While more than 20 Secret Service agents and members of the military were punished or fired in the scandal, Dach was named a policy adviser in the Office on Global Women’s Issues at the State Department.

The White House insists an internal probe found no evidence of inappropriate conduct.
Dach's father gave a $20,000 donation to the Obama Victory Fund, an amount later returned, according to Fox News.

"The Secret Service agents [are] tarred and feathered … but the connected insider whose father is a donor — listen, he's good," Bongino said.

"Not only that, he gets a promotion to the Global Women's Studies initiative or something? It's ridiculous.

"Do you hear them defending this kid now? They're saying things like, 'Oh well, you know prostitution's legal in Colombia, so it's no big deal.' What? That's not what you were saying when it wasn't your connected buddies."

Bongino, who was on the presidential detail to protect Barack Obama and George W. Bush, said the latest revelation will likely cause discomfort among some Democrats.

"This is getting to the point where some moderate old-school Reagan Democrats, the dirt-under-the-fingernails Democrats, are going to have to start to really evaluate where their party's gone. The JFK Democrats are now long gone," he said.

Bongino — author of "Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All," published by WND Books — said he believes recent Secret Service snafus in which an intruder entered the White House and an armed man rode an elevator with the president, have been corrected.

"It was a huge mistake, the White House fence jumper, but they had a 50-year track record of success … No one got more than 10 feet. They fixed it, I know they fixed it," he said.
