It was reported on Friday that a laptop with floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service agent according to the New York Daily News.
The New York Daily News reported: Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning — and are trying to determine if the thief knew what he was taking or randomly targeted the agent’s vehicle.
NYPD cops were assisting in the investigation but had scant information on exactly what’s on the laptop, sources said.
“The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side,” a police source said. “It’s a very big deal.”
“There’s data on there that’s highly sensitive,” the source said. “They’re scrambling like mad.”…
…“The U.S. Secret Service can confirm that an employee was the victim of a criminal act in which our Agency issued laptop computer was stolen,” Secret Service spokesman Shawn Holtzclaw said in a statement.
The thief allegedly struck around 3 a.m. when they pulled up to the agents home and broke into her vehicle and stole the laptop.
Why would a Secret Service agent leave a laptop with highly classified information in a vehicle parked outside late at night?
