Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz suggested Thursday on “Fox and Friends” that there was a possible White House “cover-up” of an aide’s involvement in the 2012 Secret Service prostitution scandal during an election year.

Chaffetz sent a letter to the White House last week alleging that “credible sources” had told him that White House staffer might be involved. (RELATED: Investigator Says He Was Told To Sit On White House Prostitution Inquiry)

“There are evidentially hotel records, there are investigators that went down and looked at this. The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig has done a fabulous job investigating this. Our committee, the Oversight Committee, are diving deep into this issue, and the White House needs to come clean. There’s a White House staffer who was very involved in this.

Remember there were nearly two dozen Secret Service and military personnel who were either fired or reprimanded. But the concern is when it came to the White House and the White House taking care of its own personnel, a totally different standard, and perhaps some misdirection and some cover-up to make sure that story never saw the light of day before the 2012 election.”
