White House advance team subject of criminal probe, but press secretary won't disclose details. Will Denver DA save us from power-worshiping Washington?
Okay, he's not a DA. He's a US Attorney. But I was already set on the headline before that dawned on me.
However that may be, according to the Rocky Mountain News, the Secret Service says that they're still completing their investigation into what the Secret Service describes as a "criminal case" of a member of the White House advance team who reportedly impersonated a Secret Service agent at a Bamboozlepalooza event in March. Once they complete their probe, they will turn their findings over to William Leone, acting US Attorney for the Denver district who will have to decide whether criminal charges will be filed.
The White House, you'll remember, says no one did anything wrong in the incident and insists -- apparently forcing the Secret Service to remain silent too -- on keeping secret the name of the person at the center of the probe.
Can we hope for some spine from Leone? Otherwise, aren't we left relying on the liegemen from The Note?
