White House clears itself in Secret Service scandal

The White House says it reviewed White House staff performance in Colombia in light of the Secret Service sex scandal in Colombia and found no transgressions.

Press Secretary Jay Carney offered few details on the review, but said the White House counsel in a review that started Friday and was completed by Monday found no cause for concern. He said there had been no credible allegations of misconduct among Obama's advance team, but that the administration wanted to make certain there were no improprieties.

"Out of due diligence...that review was conducted, and it produced no indication of any misconduct," Carney said, adding that the only word of misconduct were "rumors published on the Internet by people with no editors and no conscience.

"Only out of due diligence have we conducted this review, which revealed what we thought to be the case, which there was no misconduct," he said.
