(Newser) – Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan may soon be hit with perjury charges over his agency's prostitution scandal. Sources tell Fox News that an investigation from the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general indicates that Sullivan may have lied to Congress, and that the inspector general has been talking with Justice Department prosecutors for months about filing charges.

During his testimony, Sullivan said that they had identified all the women in the scandal, and that none had any connection with "criminal activity or criminal organization" or with foreign intelligence agencies. But sources say that at the time Sullivan knew that the intelligence community had confirmed that one of the women had produced a hit on the CIA's database of known criminals, and another yielded a partial hit. He also allegedly manipulated a report to the Senate Homeland Security Committee to downplay past incidents.

AMERICA.... Truthfully does the head of Obama's Secret Service Team know anything about their agents? ... How can perjury charges be brought against a Team Obama Department leader?.... When questioned about wrong doing by the women agents, he said "at that time" he didn't posses any intelligence, and there was no intelligence in any intelligence reports, from the other Intelligence Departments.... WHAT? .. There You have it folks...in his own words..... Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan didn't have any intelligence .. and nobody on Team Obama had any intelligence, and there existed no red flag intelligence, from any intelligence agency, on those women agents....... AMERICA one thing is clear .. nobody 'had or has' any intelligence in Obama's intelligence agencies.
