This video contains ONLY natural sound. No script is available.SOT Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino: "One of them is my brother. He's not thankfully a target of the investigation, but he was there. You know a lot of these guys are friends. These are close, personal friends of mine. It's a disturbing story. It's an embarrassing story. It's a damaging story to the Secret Services' credibility. Thank God the Secret Service seems to be handling this the right way. They're saying all the right things. This is embarrassing. We're going to handle it. There's an active investigation. We take full responsibility. No one is crawling under a rock and that's one of our reasons also for coming out with this and getting in front of this immediately. I think the mistake people make is not necessarily the crime. That was bad enough. It's the cover up afterwards and I think sunshine is the best disinfectant and I think the service understands that.SOT Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino: "But I can only imagine it being as thorough as possible, scouring hotel records and they're trying to figure out exactly who is involved and I think more importantly at this point you know who wasn't involved. I that a lot of people right now are being tarniched by this. And I'm not absolving anyone of their responsibility. And this may be a tremendous understatement so forgive me but, horrible lapses in judgement here. There's no question about that. But there was an advanced team there that worked really hard to ensure that the President of the United States was safe, which he was. He's back in the United States. That mission was accomplished. The public relations disaster that has resulted from this incredibly poor decision-making precess with these guys is a different matter. I think it's important to keep that in perspective. There were people on this trip that had a very important job to do and they did it. Again I'm not absolving anyone of their responsibility, but you got to keep it in perspective as to what happened. It was a very difficult trip to coordinate, I know I've been there on those."(****END****)
