"The committee understands the sensitive nature of the Secret Service's work and has made every attempt to perform its oversight duties in light of those concerns," Mr. Chaffetz said. "It is disappointing the department has declined to cooperate. We therefore must take the regrettable step of compelling the agents for interviews before the committee."
"Those restrictions are unacceptable," Mr. Chaffetz said. "Under such restrictions, the committee cannot perform its essential duties to evaluate and propose much-needed legislative reforms for this troubled agency."
