King: Secret Service studies prostitute interviews

WASHINGTON (AP) - A House committee chairman says the Secret Service is poring over interviews with 10 of 12 women involved in the Colombia prostitution scandal and so far there's no indication that any posed a national security threat.

Rep. Peter King, who is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said Tuesday that the Secret Service is still translating the interviews. The information was part of a letter from the Secret Service responding to King's questions about the incident.

King said the document revealed that Director Mark Sullivan asked for an independent probe before the scandal became public, indicating Sullivan was not attempting a cover-up.

The incident last month implicated a dozen members of the service and 12 military enlistees prior to President Barack Obama's arrival at the Summit of the Americas.
