President Trump no longer safe in White House: Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino

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.

“That just shows the president is not safe there - in the White House. The Secret Service does not have the assets, they don't have personnel on the ground they need to keep him safe.”

Should a group of terrorists decide to storm the White House, the Secret Service would not be able to protect Trump, Bongino predicted.

“The Secret Service cannot even keep one person off the grounds - what will they do if 40 terrorists charge the White House?” he asked. “And believe me the terrorists are already thinking about that.”

According to the Secret Service, Tran was charged with entering a restricted building and carrying a dangerous weapon.

Trump, who was on the property, has praised the Secret Service for doing a “fantastic job” and said the suspect was “troubled.”

But Bongino said the current Secret Service management “sucks.”

“The Secret Service is stuck in their ways and don't want to redo and upgrade the White House security plan. President Trump won't be safe there until they do,” Bongino said.

White House fence-jumper rattled door handle, roamed grounds for 16 minutes

WASHINGTON — A man who jumped the fence at the White House this month was on the presidential grounds for more than 16 minutes before Secret Service agents discovered his presence, officials said Friday.

Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said the intruder rattled a door handle and looked through a window before being apprehended, the Associated Press reported.

To enter the south lawn of the White House, the intruder jumped three separate fences: A 5-foot perimeter fence near the Treasury Building, an 8-foot vehicle gate and another 3 ½-foot fence near the East Wing.

A new Secret Service timeline of the incident revealed the fence jumper scaled the first barrier at about 11:21 p.m. on March 10 — and wasn't arrested until 11:38 p.m.

The Washington Metropolitan Police Department identified the man as Jonathan Tran, 26, of Milpitas, Calif. He is charged with entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a dangerous weapon.

President Trump was in the residence at the time but was not threatened, the Secret Service said.

"The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10 transpired," a statement from the Secret Service said. The agency said it conducted 50 interviews and reviewed radio transmissions and videotape in its investigation.

That the intruder evaded detection for so long, as first reported by CNN, is the latest embarrassing breach for the security service beset by a series of failures over the past few years. In 2014, a man who jumped the north fence of the White House made it into several rooms of the residence before being apprehended.

The revelation also came the same day the Secret Service disclosed a thief stole an agency laptop containing classified plans for Trump Tower and materials about the Hillary Clinton email investigation, along with lapel pins identifying agents responsible for protecting Trump, Clinton and Pope Francis.

The Secret Service sure do have their hands full this week, with not one but two intruders to the White House and a massive theft scandal.

While no one expected the Secret Service to have an easy job in protecting the controversial President Donald Trump, many in the security community are perplexed at the degree of ineptitude shown by the agency in the wake of recent breaches.  First we learned that last week’s fence jumper went unmolested on the grounds of the White Housefor 15 minutes before being intercepted by the agency.  Then, in a stunning breach of national security, a laptop was stolen from a Secret Service agents vehicle that was left unattended and unlocked.  This laptop contained not only information in Hillary Clinton’s security, but also the security details for the Secret Service’s protection of Trump Tower in NYC.

Now, we have yet another fence jumper.

“Just after noon Saturday, another security breach occurred at the White House, Fox News has reported.

“The Secret Service agents suddenly started yelling and their dogs were released to go after the suspect.  Reporters were told to clear out of the front law.

“Leland Vittert of FOX said Sean Spicer confirmed that the person did not actually make it over the fence, but they tried, setting off the Secret Service alarms.   The person has been apprehended and is being questioned by Secret Service officials.

“President Trump is at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida this weekend.”

The President has been a lightning rod for liberal angst in America, and his election and inauguration both sparked massive and violent protests by leftist millennials.  It is unfortunately a natural progression for these sore loser liberals to lash out against Trump and everything he represents, and as such, the Secret Service will have to remain on their toes for the foreseeable future.

Perhaps the cheese has been placed in the trap?

They need to do something different because the SS isn't doing their jobs.
