Kamala Causes Secret Service Fight

Kamala has created such a toxic environment even her secret service is fighting.

The U.S. Secret Service is set to provide a bipartisan briefing to Congress on June 21 to address questions about training and recruitment issues following an incident involving an agent assigned to Vice President Kamala Harris’ protective detail. This briefing is a response to a request from House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer, a Republican from Kentucky.

A Secret Service spokesperson confirmed to media sources that they will comply with the request from Chairman Comer and will provide the House Oversight Committee with a detailed briefing based on the points outlined in a publicly available letter dated May 30, 2024.

Chairman Comer had addressed the issue in a letter to U.S. Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle, who was appointed by President Biden. He cited reports of a Secret Service agent attacking her supervisor and other agents at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, on April 22. The agent in question was ultimately restrained and removed from her position on the Vice President’s protective detail. The Secret Service described the incident as a “medical matter.”

Further concerns have been raised by Secret Service personnel who have circulated a petition within the agency, calling for a congressional investigation into the incident and other similar occurrences. According to a Bloomberg reporter, the agents highlighted issues such as inadequate training and perceived inconsistencies in disciplinary actions.

In his letter to Director Cheatle, Chairman Comer questioned whether the agent’s previous work history had been properly evaluated during the hiring process. He suggested that due to staff shortages, the agency might have relaxed its previously stringent standards as part of efforts to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Comer requested that the Secret Service brief the committee staff by June 13. While this deadline has passed, the briefing scheduled for June 21 will address these concerns in detail.

The Secret Service, responsible for protecting the President, Vice President, and their families, confirmed that the incident at Joint Base Andrews did not disrupt Vice President Harris’s schedule, as she was at the Naval Observatory residence at the time.

Real Clear Politics reported that the agent was behaving erratically and struck the commanding officer during the altercation. Joint Base Andrews is a crucial location for the transportation of the President and Vice President, being the base for Air Force One and Air Force Two.
