Malia originally started her inquiries based on information she received from Shailey Tripp and it just exploded from there.
So here she is a number of years later and all of her hard work has now been vindicated.
According to The Dallas News this is just a portion of what she has uncovered:
Here, though, are lowlights of behind-the-scenes mishaps of our vaunted Secret Service.
- A culture of "wheels up; rings off" meant even married agents could party on foreign trips.
- Secret Service K-9 units brought their dogs into their hotel room, which the dogs trashed. The agents made payoffs so the incident wouldn't be reported.
- A agent who missed his flight later showed up drunk with two prostitutes. He was not disciplined.
- Agents "engaged" with prostitutes in Amsterdam's red-light district during an advance team trip.
- A supervisor choked a female subordinate because she rejected his sexual advances.
- A supervisor offered a subordinate a larger office in return for sex.
- A supervisor took a subordinate to a sex show while on duty.
- A male agent's gun was stolen by a male prostitute he solicited online. The gun was never recovered.
- A manager in the National Threat Assessment Center forced employees to drink alcohol in his office "so that he could trust them." The same manager was accused of multiple incidents of sexual harassment.
The article goes into more detail, but that right there is enough to take your breath away.
None of this information came easily and Malia spent $100,000 of her own money on legal fees to gain access to the documents which tell these troubling tales.
Which goes to show the kind of dedication it requires from citizen journalists to get to the truth, and then get that truth out to the American people.
All I can say is congratulations Malia! You do us proud!
