Judiciary Committee Chairman Leahy, On Secret Service Developments Today

“I know and respect Acting Director Joseph Clancy.  I hope that he can help get to the bottom of the alarming security breaches at the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and take steps to ensure that nothing like that ever happens again. 

“The facts about the intrusion at the White House seem to be changing daily.  Both the President and the public need and deserve a full accounting of the details, and as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I look forward to reviewing thoroughly the results of the inquiries by both the Department of Homeland Security and the panel of independent experts that will be appointed soon.  Both of these reviews should be completed as quickly as possible and made available to the public.”
