A senior Secret Service agent who posted on social media in October that she would not protect President Trump has been forced to resign from the agency according to a report from the Washington Examiner.
The Washington Examiner reported: The Secret Service will permanently remove a top special agent from her position after an investigation into her Facebook comments that she would rather not defend President Trump or take “a bullet” from him, but some agents are concerned she will simply be transferred to another government job.
About two weeks ago, the Secret Service placed the agent’s prior post — the special agent in charge of the Denver District, the top job in that office — on a list of agency openings, according to two Secret Service sources.
Kerry O’Grady, the agent in question, is on administrative leave amid an internal Secret Service investigation into her Facebook comments about Trump…
…Roughly a month before Election Day in early October, O’Grady wrote that she would rather face “jail time” than take “a bullet” for Trump because she considered him a “disaster” for the country, especially as it relates to women and children. The post was written on her personal Facebook page late on a Sunday night.
Removing O’Grady from the Secret Service was an important move that needed to be made by the agency to show that not only are political comments inappropriate from agents but that if you’re unwilling to do your job then you better start retirement planning.
