Last week was tough on the White House. All they were trying to do was negotiate this nuclear arms deal with Iran, and everything just kept getting in the way. First, Hillary Clinton decides to take over a week to figure out what excuse would work best for her missing emails. Then, the Republicans decided to make a whole thing out of asking why the administration was openly negotiating a treaty with a terrorist state. Thankfully, the Secret Service was able inject some levity into an otherwise depressing state of affairs, or the White House might be led to believe their circumstances are not so rosy.
Apparently, last Wednesday, a couple of Secret Service agents decided to have a tiny bit too much to drink at a local party and then test their colleagues’ preparedness by getting into their vehicle and driving straight into a security pylon on the White House lawn.
The Obama administration is investigating allegations that two senior Secret Service agents, including a top member of the president’s protective detail, drove a government car into White House security barricades after drinking at a late-night party last week, an agency official said Wednesday.
Officers on duty who witnessed the March 4 incident wanted to arrest the agents and conduct sobriety tests, according to a current and a former government official familiar with the incident. But the officers were ordered by a supervisor on duty that night to let the agents go home, said these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the sensitive internal matter.
This incident is the “first test” of the new Secret Service director who was, according to the Post brought in by the Obama Administration to correct the faults of the previous Secret Service heirarchy, which included but were not limited to a scandal involving Columbian hookers and that time a dude ran into the front door of the White House and made it almost all the way into the residence before being caught and subdued.
The good news is that the agents under investigation for the incidenct, reportedly, aren’t really all that important: only the second in command on Obama’s security detail and a senior supervisor in the DC field office. So we should definitely feel confident in the service’s ability to protect the leader of the free world. Just maybe not from themselves.
