Ongoing Issues With The Secret Service At The White House05:07


The Obama administration is investigating another embarrassing incident involving Secret Service agents at the White House. Last week, two agents, who are reported to be high ranking, allegedly drove a government-issued vehicle into a barricade at the White House while intoxicated.

Last month, President Obama appointed a new director of the agency, an outsider, to try and and clean up some of the trouble and deal with a series of mishaps. This is the first public embarrassment under the new director Joseph P. Clancy.

Carol Leonnig, who broke the story in The Washington Post, joins Here & Now's Robin Young with details.
