A new report is likely to reveal that White  House staffers were involved in the Colombian prostitution scandal, with two  members of the president’s advance team bringing hookers back to the hotel where  he later stayed.

The revelation, if proven true, contradicts  the White House’s original assertion that none of its staffers had patronized  prostitutes in advance of Barack Obama’s vision to Cartagena for the Summit of  the Americas in April.

The scandal ensnared 13 Secret Service  agents, seven Army soldiers, two US Marines and two DEA agents — all of whom  were sent to the resort city to prepare security and communications the week  before the president was sent to arrive.

Until now, the White House has avoided  embarrassment in the scandal and claimed none of its own advance team had  participated in the hard-partying or cavorting with sex workers that sullied the  name of the Secret Service.

However, Fox  News reports that an internal  investigation by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector  General is likely to conclude two White House staffers picked up hookers and  brought them back to the Cartagena Hilton where the president later stayed.

The military personnel and all but one of the  Secret Service agents implicated in the scandal had been staying at the Hotel  Caribe — a separate hotel.

A Secret Service official told Fox News:  ‘Three US delegation members that stayed at the Hilton brought prostitutes back  as overnight guests. One of them was ours and the other two were White House  staffers. We knew very early that White House staffers were  involved.’

U.S. President Barack Obama walks to his limousine alongside Secret Service agents as he arrives at Norfolk Airport in Virginia, July 13, 2012U.S. President Barack Obama walks to his  limousine  alongside Secret Service agents as he arrives at Norfolk  Airport in Virginia.  He was reported to be furious with the agency that provides him with  protection.

Some in the Secret Service are beginning to  worry that the report, which could be released as early as this week, has been  whitewashed to remove or downplay the involvement of anyone working in the  president’s offices.

Two senators, Susan Collins of Maine and  Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut, of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent  a letter to the inspector general demanding to know the status of the  report.

They also want to know whether earlier drafts  of the report were changed after they were reviewed by the Secret Service or the  Department of Homeland Security.

A dozen Secret Service officers, agents and  supervisors were  implicated in the Colombia scandal. Eight have been forced out  of the  agency, three were cleared of serious misconduct and at least two  employees are fighting to get their jobs back.

The misconduct  became public after a dispute  over payment between a Secret Service  agent and a prostitute at a Cartagena  hotel on April 12.

All the alleged activities took place before  Obama arrived in Cartagena for meetings with 33 other regional leaders, but the  scandal overshadowed  his visit.

Eventually, the prostitute at the centre of  the scandal was revealed to be a 24-year-old woman called Dania  Suarez.

Speaking on Spanish television in May she  said the men were ‘stupid  brutes’ and drinking vodka ‘like it was water’ in a  local bar.

One of the men, identified as Arthur  Huntington, would not pay the $800 he initially agreed to pay Miss  Suarez
