WASHINGTON – It’s been weeks of eye-popping Secret Service scandals – with egregious lapses in security that jeopardize the very safety of President Trump and his family – and now a veteran agent who guarded former President Obama blames “the terrible management class” in the agency.
First, a fence jumper carrying two cans of mace roamed the grounds March 10 for 17 minutes and rattled the door knob of the White House as Secret Service agents ignored alarms.
Then, an agent left a laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower in her car in New York City, and a thief made off with the sensitive information Thursday.
Next, two agents snapped “selfies” with Trump’s sleeping 8-year-old grandson inside a Secret Service vehicle in New York Sunday.
Also Sunday, a guest claimed he “snuck by” the Secret Service and managed to take a photo of himself inside President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago study.
And on Monday, it was reported the Secret Service is permanently removing Agent Kerry O’Grady from her position after she publicly stated she wouldn’t “take a bullet” for President Trump.
The alarming breaches have observers asking: What is going on with the Secret Service?
Mar-a-Lago intruder Joseph Young posted this image to Instagram Saturday with the caption: ‘Snuck by Secret Service to catch this selfie. They might have told us not to go in there’
