Senior Secret Service Agent Who Didnít Want to Take ĎA Bulletí Escaped Punishments
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 06/26/17 | Susan Crabtree

O'Grady is still on payroll, maintains security clearance and was never placed on ‘Do Not Admit’ list

The senior Secret Service agent who said she did not want to take "a bullet" for President Trump did not suffer several disciplinary actions imposed on other agents and officers for allegations of similarly serious or lesser misconduct, according to multiple sources from the Secret Service community and attorneys specializing in federal law enforcement labor and employment law.

Kerry O'Grady, the agent in question, was removed from her position as head of the Secret Service's Denver district in March amid an investigation into her pre-election Facebook comments about Trump. O'Grady remains on paid administrative leave and retains her security clearance six months after the agency first started looking into the allegations of misconduct against her.

Additionally, senior managers have never placed O'Grady on a "Do Not Admit" list—an agency-wide notification that an employee whose conduct is under investigation is not allowed access to any Secret Service offices or resources, according to two former agents.

Despite the obvious efforts to protect the agency from employees accused of serious misconduct that could pose a security threat, the sources describe the "Do Not Admit" list also as a "shaming device" and an "intimidation tool" that senior managers have inconsistently used in recent years against employees facing less-serious allegations of misconduct.

The Secret Service did not respond to inquiries about O'Grady's case and any interim disciplinary actions taken against her while she awaits a final resolution. Agency spokesmen previously told the Washington Free Beacon that federal privacy laws bar them from discussing details about her ongoing case.

Generally, you receive more of the behavior that is rewarded and less of the behavior that is punished.

Is this action taken because of a union rule, or just an acknowledgment from the Secret Service that they have the right to refuse service to anybody they feel like?

Obviously the Secret Service is still controlled by Obamabots! DRAIN THE SWAMP, MR TRUMP!! (and I sure hope you have your own bodyguards, because the SS doesn’t care about your life!)

Paid vacation courtesy of The Deep State.

After 8 yrs of soetoro, like the FBI, the Secret Service has lost all credibility.

It is more than that.. To protect and to serve.. Then get out. Fire them. They don’t belong and they are dishonoring those who will protect..

She should have been fired. Immediately fired due to not wanting to follow her job requirements and duties.

Only a disturbed person would want to take a bullet. It’s another thing for it to be required as part of your job.

They never take bullets for any particular or president, but for the presidency - at least that’s how they should view they’re duty to the Americans that they serve. So if they’re being honest, then for whatever excuse they want to give, they can no longer do their duty, which is a duty to America and its citizens, not just or not even mainly to the president.

Agree 100%

I question her sanity to post it on FB too.

It’s one thing if she would have kept it private and wanted to leave. Instead she tells the entire world on Facebook and Leftists celebrate it.

If she was a district head, she shouldn’t have union protection, even if she still pays dues from her days as an underling.

I’ve seen the same documentary, it is compelling. I have also seen someone make the magic bullet shoot along with getting the other shoots off in the same timeframe. I don’t think we’ll ever know the truth.

Its government employment and the funny thing is if I anger a GS-15, SES or 06 and above I lose my job, she against the president you would think she would be gone. Half the reason why when my time overseas is done I think I will leave government work for good, too much BS.

She is not fit for any security detail in the Secret Service.

Simply by her words. Remove from the service immediately.

HORRIBLE that, of all people, CAPITOL POLICE are the ones showing these clowns what’s expected of them (and arguably going way beyond what’s expected of Capitol Police).
