Lieberman Reassured President was Never in Danger Due to Secret Service Misconduct During Trip to Cartagena, Colombia


Location: Washington, DC

Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., released the following statement in reaction to a letter from Department of Homeland Security Inspector General Charles Edwards regarding his investigation into Secret Service misconduct in Cartagena, Colombia.

"I thank Inspector General Edwards and his staff for all the work they did to complete their investigation into U.S. government personnel who were in Cartagena, Columbia, for a visit by President Obama. I look forward to meeting with the Inspector General, hopefully next week, to be briefed more fully on his report and findings. For now, I will say that I am reassured that the IG concluded that although the agents of the US Secret Service 'engaged in misconduct,' he found no evidence that their misconduct 'compromised the safety and security of the President or any sensitive information during this trip.'"
