Washington – Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are showing for the first time surveillance video of a March 4 incident at the White House involving Secret Service agents.
The video shows a government vehicle driving through a secured area at the White House and nudging a temporary barrier while on-duty agents and officers were investigating a suspicious item left in the area.
The House Oversight Committee showed it for the first time publicly Tuesday at a hearing.
Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy is testifying for the third time about the incident.
Two senior agents are accused of drinking before driving into the White House complex and pushing the barrier with the SUV’s bumper.
The Homeland Security Department’s inspector general is investigating the allegations against the agents.
