Rep. Peter King is taking seriously the security lapses that allowed a couple to crash the White House state dinner. Matt Lauer talked to Rep. King and Ron Kessler Monday on the Today Show.

“That’s why we have to have a full investigation to find out exactly what the Secret Service is doing to prevent this from ever happening again. First of all, how it happened, why it happened and how it will never happen again. And it put’s us on notice. Yes, we do need more protection. We have to have more fall-back. If one Secret Service agent makes a mistake — you have to assume someone’s always going to make a mistake — there has to be the backup. There has to be layers of defense,” said King.
