    Two Secret Service agents have reportedly been fired in relation to an incident last month when a California man scaled the fence and roamed the White House grounds for nearly 20 minutes. The two agents who have been fired had been on the job for less than a year and were assigned to guard posts located at the Treasury Building and an entrance on East Executive Avenue when 26-year-old Jonathan Tran scaled multiple fences, set off alarms and wandered around the White House for 17 minutes before anyone stopped him in mid-March. “The Secret Service review of the March 10...

    The Secret Service is bracing for the impending appointment of a new director with a senior military rank, the first time an agency chief would come from outside the service in modern history. Agents and officers are expecting Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marine general and former head of U.S. Central Command, to tap another general to head the Secret Service and help reform the agency and impose more rigorous and even-handed discipline, according to two knowledgeable sources.

    The worst enemies of President Trump may be his own Secret Service who have sworn to protect him. The so-called “Shadow Government” is testing the waters. Are they practicing for a real “Coup” to take President Trump out of the White House? We can only speculate at this point. But one thing is sure – something nefarious and potentially destructive is happening. This week has been an extremely embarrassing one for our nation’s Secret Service, and a scary week for the President. A total of three significant breaches of security have occurred in the past five days involving the Secret...
  • ‘Stolen’ Secret Service Laptop Was LEFT ON A MOTORCYCLE Outside Agent’s Home

    It was reported earlier this week that a Secret Service Agent’s laptop was reported stolen from a vehicle. The laptop contained floor plans to Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Via Daily News: Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning. Some items stolen along with the laptop — including coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it — were later recovered. But the laptop, along with other documents described as “sensitive,” were still being sought. The thief stepped out of...

    The White House fence jumper who lingered on the ground unnoticed for 17 minutes was literally just hanging out in plain view with alarms blaring, and the Secret Service had no clue. Congressman Jason Chaffetz tells TMZ he met with the Director of Homeland Security and the Acting Director of the Secret Service for an hour and a half Tuesday, and his conclusion ... "It was even worse than I thought." Chaffetz says the surveillance video is shocking ... the intruder was not darting around. Rather, he was "lingering," "hanging out" on the grounds. At one point he took the...

    There were a series of breaches and scandals involving the Secret Service under the Obama administration. For example, during President Obama’s first year in office, Washington couple Tareq and Michaele Salahi crashed his first state dinner after getting past security. Later, in November 2011, a man with a semiautomatic rifle parked near the White House and opened fire at the building. No one was injured, but former first family member Sasha Obama was inside at the time. The Washington Post in 2014 reported that the Secret Service apparently didn’t know it happened until later. Between 2012 and 2014, there were...

    The fence-jumper who wandered around the White House complex for 17 minutes was able to elude the Secret Service in part because the agency has taken down alarm sensors along an area of one fence that he scaled, according to two sources familiar with details of the incident. The intruder, identified as Jonathan Tran, was able to jump over three different fences, including at least one between the Treasury Department and the east area of the White House complex shortly before midnight March 10.

    We're sure this will be fine Hey, give them this: It’s better than getting drunk and cavorting with Colombian prostitutes. And there’s always the possibility that those were the agents assigned to the Hillary detail and the horror simply drove them to it. But you’d think - and maybe you’d be wrong - these sharpshooters with the dark glasses and the earpieces would be invulnerable to a schlocky type crime like getting your own laptop stolen out of your own car. They protect the life of the president, after all. Surely they wouldn’t let something as stupid as this happen...
  • Secret Service removes agent who didn't want to take 'a bullet' for Trump

    The Secret Service will permanently remove a top special agent from her position after an investigation into her Facebook comments that she would rather not defend President Trump or take "a bullet" from him, but some agents are concerned she will simply be transferred to another government job. About two weeks ago, the Secret Service placed the agent's prior post — the special agent in charge of the Denver District, the top job in that office — on a list of agency openings, according to two Secret Service sources.

    Hey, Angie, how ’bout paying your bills?: President Trump met with Angela Merkel on Friday, in what observers described as a “tense” meeting. Gosh, wonder why? Reportedly, the President pressed the German Chancellor about the need for her wealthy country to actually pay its dues to NATO, which it has been under-paying for basically as long as that organization has existed. Shockingly, the Chancellor announced during their joint presser afterwards that she is now suddenly committed to doing that. Turns out, somebody just had to ask. Or more likely, demand, which would explain the “tenseness”.

    The president is no longer safe on the White House grounds, according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who once guarded presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Bongino made the stunning assessment in an interview Friday with Fox News. It followed an incident last Friday night when a man jumped the White House fence and may have roamed the property for as long as 15 minutes before he was stopped by the Secret Service. Jonathan Tran, who carried two cans of mace, set off multiple alarms, Bongino said, and was even spotted by Secret Service officers, but was...

    A laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service agent's vehicle in Brooklyn, police sources told the Daily News. Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning — and are trying to determine if the thief knew what he was taking or randomly targeted the agent’s vehicle. NYPD cops were assisting in the investigation but had scant information on exactly what’s on the laptop, sources said. "The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national...

    The accused White House fence jumper was on the White House south grounds for 15 minutes or more before he was caught Friday, a Secret Service source with knowledge of the matter told CNN Friday, and officials are investigating multiple failures that allowed it to happen. The source says Jonathan Tran set off several alarms, but was able to avoid other sensors. The source said "the response to the alarm was lacking, and found (the suspect) vulnerabilities in the system." Secret Service officials are conducting a formal Mission Assurance Review to the incident. They say the 26-year-old California man carrying...

    A laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service agent's vehicle in Brooklyn, police sources told the Daily News. The thief stepped out of a car, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent's vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of her home. The thief also took "sensitive" documents and the agent's access keycard, though the level of the agent's access wasn't immediately clear.
