Skip to comments.President Trump no longer safe in White House: Former Secret Service agent

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 still able to come within close proximity of the White House and even reportedly jiggled the door to the executive mansion.
The intruder set off multiple alarms, alarms that clearly showed someone breached the property, and he was seen by officers who didn't think anything of it. This is a big story, Bongino told Fox News....

I remembers liberals whining 8 years ago: “the right hates Obama so much they’ll off him.” I’m personally scared a crazed leftist or Islamist will take a shot at out Donald. He needs to clean house on the SS; that guy getting into the WH was an inside job!
Something does not pass the smell test here.
He must have a 3rd book coming out soon.

Actually you may have a point. . .I was thinking about the SS and the lax security.
If I was President Trump I would continue packing. The Secret Service is obviously not as diligent as one would expect. There needs to be a thorough house cleaning there and any agents not dedicated to their core mission should be discharged or reassigned.
Can Dan go back to the secret service and help out
Just shooting in the dark so grain of seriously salty but...
The SS has had to protect a lot of truly slimy humans over the last while. Some SS have gotten involved in some shenanigans abroad not so long ago.
I’m wondering if some of those SS involved in guarding the slimier of the slime didn’t end up getting involved in some ‘pizza’ related slime themselves.
Might be some on the SS staff are rather desperate to prevent any investigations.
I like Bongino, but he’s a bit of a sensationalist. He does need to sell his books (and he’s a terrible writer), so I understand his saying stuff like this.
What is really frickin scary just like big earthquakes and such we are past due for the loss of a siting president prayers up
All of a sudden, he’s being widely quoted. He’s written two successful books, while losing every election that he has participated in.
I smell book number three.
Do you happen to know... can diplomatic immunity be shared with one’s children?
I don't understand. Do you think that if JFK packed an AK47 that things would be any different?
Trump had his own security detail which he trusts with his life. the new SS allows idiots over the WH fence and loses laptops in cars for crying out loud. He was hesitant to make the SS his security team, now I think it’s time to go back to his original security guys.
I am concerned that anyone was seen on the lawn of the White House considering the evil & troubling times we now live in. Everyone, keep praying for the protection of our President and his administration. An investigation must be made to find out if anyone was slacking on the job or intentionally did not do his or her duty to protect our President.
...If I was President Trump I would continue packing....
The entire Trump executive staff and Cabinet should all be carrying.
This guy seems to shoot his mouth off a lot about his SS experience, which doesn’t really add to his credibility.
“I remembers liberals whining 8 years ago: the right hates Obama so much theyll off him.”
Assassination is evil. Obama is evil. No danger of assassination.
Trump’s enemies, conversely, are evil. Danger.
I have no problem with the President running the country from Mar-a-Lago. Having Congress and the President having to travel to Washington DC is so 1790. Congresspeople can do their business from their home districts and we would save a fortune on travel. Of course, they would then have to associate with their constituents, instead of running away to Washington to escape them.
It’s 2017. Time for DC to become a museum city.
