NYP Provides More Details On State Dept Scandals

From the New York Post:

Hillary’s sorry state of affairs

Probes into her department’s sex scandals were quashed, memo says

By S.A. MILLER and GEOFF EARLE | June 11, 2013

WASHINGTON — A State Department whistleblower has accused high-ranking staff of a massive coverup — including keeping a lid on findings that members of then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s security detail and the Belgian ambassador solicited prostitutes.

A chief investigator for the agency’s inspector general wrote a memo outlining eight cases that were derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills…

Lest we forget, Cheryl Mills also ‘interfered’ for Hillary’s sake in the Benghazi talking points. In fact, once upon a time Ms. Mills was in charge of suppressing Bill Clinton’s ‘bimbo eruptions’ — for Hillary.

Among the bombshell findings:

A [Diplomatic Security] agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.

“The agent began his investigation and had determined that the ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” says the memo.

“The ambassador’s protective detail and the embassy’s surveillance detection team . . . were well aware of the behavior.”

Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased, and the ambassador remains in place, according to the memo.

Gutman was a big Democratic donor before taking the post, having raised $500,000 for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and helping finance his inaugural.

Which is how he bought his post in the first place.

By the way, Mr. Gutman is already notorious for his anti-Semitic statements in 2011. And also for telling Laura Ingraham in 2008 that Sarah Palin  should stay home and take  care of her kids rather than be on the ticket with John McCain.

At least seven agents in Clinton’s security detail hired prostitutes while traveling with her in various countries, including Russia and Colombia. Investigators called the use of prostitutes by Clinton’s security agents “endemic.”

Bill Clinton must be green with envy.

The liaisons with prostitutes allegedly occurred in the same hotel where Clinton slept, according to sources familiar with the incident.

Hillary should be used to that.

But the agents involved got little more than a wrist-slap. Three were removed from the security detail, given one-day suspensions and reassigned.

“No further investigations have occurred regarding the remaining four, despite the possibility of counterintelligence issues,” says the memo.

According to the memo, members of the Special Investigations Division (SID) approached the agent who was probing “and reportedly told him to shut down the four investigations.” …

The draft report, marked “Sensitive But Unclassified,” cites several examples of undue influence “from the top floor of the department, raising serious concerns about the quality and integrity” of investigations. That statement was removed from the final report issued March 15.

The final report also removed mention of “an ambassador accused of pedophilia and another such senior official had [Diplomatic Security] stop an investigation of an ambassador designate.”

“Hindering such cases can result in counterintelligence vulnerabilities and can allow exploitive criminals to continue their activities,” said the draft report.

“Moreover, the interventions frustrate, even demoralize,” dedicated agents, it went on…

Still, ‘what difference does it make now?’
