Secret Service Director On The Congressional Hot Seat

The director of the US Secret Service, Joseph Clancy, faced bipartisan criticism from lawmakers on Tuesday as he appeared before Congress for the first time since two agents were accused of getting drunk and driving their car into a White House barricade.

The March 4 incident prompted another round of embarrassing stories about the embattled agency. And in a “surprise” (that’s right, no obvious puns from this camp), Republican Rep. Aaron Schock of Illinois, dogged by irregularities in his campaign finance and congressional spending accounts, suddenly announced on Tuesday that he would resign his House seat at the end of the month.

ABC’s Mary Bruce joined us from the White House to discuss.
