Watergate Subpoenaed in Hooker Probe

Views

I stopped by the Watergate Hotel this afternoon and chatted with Josh Graham, the assistant general manager, about the recent stories swirling around his establishment.

According to Graham, the Watergate has received multiple subpoenas in connection with the Wilkes Hookergate scandal. He went on to say that the hotel is complying with those subpoenas but that he couldn’t discuss the content of the orders, nor could he discuss details of the investigation, “out of respect for our guests’ privacy.”

The Wall Street Journal had originally reported that investigators “had requested, and been given, records relating to the investigation and rooms in the hotel,” but not that they had used subpoenas.

I put in a call to the Westin Grand — the other hotel reportedly used by Wilkes to entertain lawmakers with poker, food, drink and possibly prostitutes. No one there could immediately confirm it had received similar subpoenas.
