Washington Post Criticized for Story About Prostitution Scandal Because of Source

By Steve Neavling

The Washington Post published a story in October that revealed White House aides knew of a possible link between Columbia and prostitution.

But since then, some questions have been raised about the credibility of one of the story’s sources, The Huffington Post reported.

The report suggested that David Nieland, one of the sources, was a troubled employee who may not be trustworthy.

But the Post still stands behind the story.

“We fully stand by our story, which relied on multiple investigative records and multiple sources,” Baron said in an email Thursday to The Huffington Post. “It is false to suggest that the story relied disproportionately on any one individual.

“The story focused on what the White House knew and the thoroughness of its investigation,” Baron continued. “Absolutely nothing in the story needs to be corrected. The story was perfectly clear about what was known and not known.”

What wasn’t clear was whether Baron knew about Nieland’s credibility issues.

FBI Special Agent Accused of Compromising Task Force with Woman in Georgia

FBI Special Agent Ken Hillman was leaving a bar with the wife of a local millionaire last year when he avoided arrest by convincing the responding officer to take him home, the Times Free Press reports

 

The article does not say that Hillman was drinking but implies that.

On top of that,  the  woman, Angela Russell, who is not a certified law enforcement officer in Georgia, says she worked on a task force that cracks down on online offers for underage sex, the Times Free Press wrote.

Some defense attorneys are now questioning whether Russell compromised any of the dozens of cases.

“[These allegations] definitely damage the credibility of this task force and everything it’s doing,” said defense attorney Shawn Bible, who represents several suspects arrested recently by the FBI task force.
