    MANHATTAN (CNN)– Tiffany, the iconic jewelry retailer, said on Tuesday that sales in the U.S. were hurt by all the chaos surrounding its flagship store on New York City’s 5th Avenue, which just so happens to be neighbors with Trump Tower. While Tiffany didn’t mention the President-elect by name, it was clear what Tiffany was referring to when it said that there has been “some adverse effect on traffic” at the 5th Avenue location due to “the impact of recent election-related activity.” Tiffany added that there was “softness” at this store and warned that sales could be hit again in...

    Thousands of sensitive assets belonging to U.S. Secret Service agents, including firearms, computer laptops, work badges, telephones and even motor vehicles, have been lost during the past 15 years, according to documents obtained by nonprofit government watchdog Judicial Watch. “This is supposedly an elite law enforcement agency — how did all this equipment get stolen?” or lost. “This is alarming. Every American should be alarmed about this,” Judicial Watch’s Irene Garcia told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Secret Service agents reported 11,780 lost or stolen assets between fiscal years 2001 and 2016, according to the data Judicial Watch received, although...

    NY POST ^ | 11/11/2016 | by Joshua Rhett Miller
    The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned. Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.” But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a...

Members of her security detail had a hearty laugh at her expense when she fell and broke her right elbow as she walked to her car in the State Department basement on her way to a White House meeting in 2009....

    Hillary Clinton's 'mysterious handler' who pops up from time to time on the campaign trail is a Secret Service agent, her campaign says, and rumors that suggest otherwise are 'despicable.' A right-wing website on Tuesday speculated that while the African-American man dressed like he was part of Clinton's government-provided security detail he may not be because 'his actions prove otherwise.' The Drudge Report picked up the story that same day. It posted a picture of Clinton and the man at a Las Vegas rally and asked 'Who is he?'

    Hillary Clinton’s mysterious handler disappeared in mid-August. In recent bizarre events on the campaign trail a strange man was noticed at Hillary Clinton’s side. The man is dressed like a secret service agent but his actions prove otherwise. In a recent campaign stop in a Union Hall in front of a sparse crowd, at about the time when some liberal protesters began to protest, Hillary Clinton suddenly froze. She looked dazed and lost. Seeing this, a group of men rushed to assist the candidate on the stage. One man however gently pats the candidate’s back and then says, “Keep Talking.”...

They were rescued by firefighters with the Colorado Springs Fire Department, which lowered a ladder into the elevator, allowing Trump and his entourage to climb out. Two Trump campaign sources confirmed the incident to CNN. The story was first reported by the Denver Post. Trump eventually took the stage at the rally, where he opened his remarks by blasting the local fire marshal for shutting off entry to his campaign event due to capacity restrictions.

And perhaps most ominously for the agency tasked with the safety of the White House and its occupants, he writes that 'a "f*** it" mentality trickled down' throughout the Service because...
