Agent Who 'Wouldn't Take a Bullet' for Trump Loses Top Job—But Some Agents Worry She's Not Going Far
The Secret Service agent who said she “wouldn’t take a bullet” for Trump now will never have to.
Kerry O’Grady was suspended from her job as agent in charge of the Secret Service’s Denver office last October when she wrote on her Facebook page that she’d rather face jail time than protect Trump.
The Washington Examiner reported that O’Grady then told her Facebook followers, which included former and current Secret Service agents, that she couldn’t protect Trump. She promptly endorsed Hillary Clinton, which is in violation of federal law:
"As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position.
But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her."
O’Grady doesn’t have to worry about protecting the president now. She’s been removed from her top job.
Other agents complained that O’Grady was a liability to the agency which is already under scrutiny.
“Current and former Secret Service agents worry that O'Grady will not be fired but instead transferred to a different division in the Department of Homeland Security, according to the Examiner. If transferred, O'Grady would be able to serve until retirement and keep her pension.”
