Surveillance video of two U.S. Secret Service agents drunk driving at the White House may have been erased as part of the agency's policy of deleting recordings every 72 hours, CNN reported on Thursday. Two videos of the incident, where the agents slowly pulled onto White House grounds and into an active bomb investigation, exist, but the chairman of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, Jason Chaffetz, told CNN that he learned other recordings may have been deleted. The director of the agency charged with protecting the president as well as other agents, Joseph Clancy, is set to testify about this latest scandal before a Senate committee Thursday afternoon. He testified earlier this week at the House of Representatives.

By Gary Robertson RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe on Wednesday called for an investigation into the arrest of a black college student that left him bleeding from the head and sparked campus protests. Photographs circulated on social media showed Martese Johnson, 20, vice chairman of the University of Virginia's Honor Committee, with a bloodied face after an arrest by state Alcoholic Beverage Control agents early on Wednesday morning. "Governor McAuliffe is concerned by the reports of this incident and has asked the secretary of public safety to initiate an independent Virginia State Police investigation into the use of force," the Democratic governor's office said.
