Remember Kerry O’Grady? The Secret Service agent who said she would not take a bullet for President Trump has been removed from her post as special agent in charge of the agency’s Denver office. I don’t know whether this means she is being demoted or that she will be terminated. She should be fired and she is damned lucky she’s not being prosecuted for violating the Hatch Act.
Some Secret Service agents expressed concern that the agency’s top brass will “insulate” O’Grady and simply move her to another position in the Department of Homeland Security — which the Secret Service falls under — so that she can finish out her career and collect her government pension. That just should not be allowed and Jeff Sessions should step in if need be and move on this. This is a woman who not only openly stated she would not protect the President on Facebook, she stated her support for Hillary Clinton. She’s definitely an enemy from within.
The Secret Service agent who said during last year’s presidential campaign season that she “wouldn’t take a bullet” for then-candidate Donald Trump has been removed from her post as special agent in charge of the agency’s Denver office.
According to the Washington Examiner, Kerry O’Grady, the agent in question, has been permanently removed from her senior position. She had been on administrative leave for the last two months while the Secret Service continues to conduct an investigation into her comments.
Sources within the Secret Service told the Examiner that just two weeks ago the agency posted a job listing for the Denver special agent in charge position on an internal job board.
The investigation into O’Grady centers around Facebook posts she made last October, about one month before Election Day in November. O’Grady said she would rather “face jail time” than take “a bullet” for Trump. She also endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton over Trump.
In the same post where she made her controversial comments, O’Grady also said that she struggles to not violate the Hatch Act, which prevents federal employees from posting comments on social media or other places on the internet that “advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office or partisan political group.”
This comes on the heels of a laptop and sensitive documents being stolen out of an agent’s car that she left parked in her driveway at her home. What kind of agent does that? On that laptop were evacuation and floor plans for Trump Tower. It also had Clinton email investigation information on it. There was other info. in those documents they won’t disclose. The person that stole it got out of an Uber, went right up to the car and took it out of there, just like it was planned.
Then there was the incident of the guy who scaled the fence at the White House at midnight and was on the grounds for a full 16 minutes. He was getting ready to go in the White House where the President was in attendance, when a security agent ‘ran into him’. He unbelievably asked him how he got there. What is this? Amateur hour? Geez.
Agents are supposed to keep their political opinions to themselves and be willing, if need be, to give their lives to protect the President. This woman fails at all of that and is not fit to be a Secret Service agent. Sounds to me as if the Secret Service needs a purge and everyone needs vetting and background checks again.
