WaPo’s Carol Leonnig: White House Spin on Prostitution Scandal Is ‘Demonstrably False’
WaPo’s Carol Leonnig: WH Spin On Prostitution Scandal ‘Demonstrably False’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
Washington Post journalist Carol Leonnig said that the White House’s spin on the Cartagena prostitution scandal was “demonstrably false.”
Leonnig’s report, co-authored with David Nakamura and published Thursday, indicated that senior White House aides knew about the scandal despite claims to the contrary from administration officials at the time.
“The White House has said a lot of different things over the last two years about why a White House staffer likely wasn’t involved and why their review was very thorough and they found nothing to it,” Leonnig said. “This issue of mistaken identity is a red herring. It’s demonstratively false to say the only evidence involving this guy was that a woman had signed herself into this room.”
