CBS: Clinton State Dept Covered Up Ambassador’s Alleged Use of Prostitutes, Other Investigations

Well, in all fairness, hiring Hillary Clinton pretty much means sex scandals will happen and they will be covered up. She didn’t specialize in dealing with “bimbo eruptions” throughout the 1980s and 1990s for nothing.
The State Department Inspector General’s memo refers to the 2011 investigation into an ambassador who “routinely ditched … his protective security detai” and inspectors suspect this was in order to “solicit sexual favors from prostitutes.”
Sources told CBS News that after the allegations surfaced, the ambassador was called to Washington, D.C. to meet with Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy, but was permitted to return to his post.
Fedenisn says “hostile intelligence services” allow such behavior to continue. “I would be very surprised if some of those entities were not aware of the activities,” she said. “So yes, it presents a serious risk to the United States government.”
A draft of the Inspector General’s report on the performance of the DSS, obtained by CBS News, states, “Hindering such cases calls into question the integrity of the investigative process, can result in counterintelligence vulnerabilities and can allow criminal behavior to continue.”
John Miller spoke with Mike Pohelitz, a retired Senior Agent at the DSS who was involved in one of the cases listed in the Inspector General’s memo. Pohelitz said he was told to stop investigating one of the cases and that the order likely came from the upper ranks of the DSS.
“I got the information through my DS channel,” he told Miller. “But it had to come from somebody higher than DS, I’m sure.”
Patrick Kennedy’s becoming famous. He was at the center of Benghazi, too. According to a report by Sharyl Attkisson, Kennedy is the State Department official who kept the Foreign Emergency Response Team (FEST) on the sidelines during the Benghazi attack. Kennedy is a career State Dept. official, having risen to his current post as Undersecretary of Management in 2007. Maybe his other job, atop the department’s “Greening Council,” is taking up too much of his valuable time.
