WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama’s spokesman is urging the Secret Service to release results of its investigation into a White House intrusion as soon as possible.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest says there is legitimate public interest into how a man armed with a knife was able to jump a security fence and get inside the executive mansion.

Earnest says it will be the Secret Service’s duty to decide what details can be released since some information may be classified. But he said Obama expects that what information can be made public be released.

Earnest spoke to reporters as Secret Service Director Julia Pierson was being grilled on the breach by a House committee.
