    The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an agency report obtained by the News4 I-Team. The agency, along with the National Park Service, said it intends to begin building a taller, stronger fence to protect the White House grounds by 2018. Details of the plan were included in an audio recording of a briefing made by federal officials, which was released to the I-Team Wednesday. The same briefing is expected to be...

    Two lawmakers say the U.S. Secret Service may be running out of agents and could need to use outside help, according to the Washington Examiner.

The letter, which comes after a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) probe that questioned the agency's "ability to protect the White House and its occupants," called on the U.S. Secret Service to find ways to...

The scene takes place before the alleged battery occurred. TMZ also says that prosecutors were swayed by an affidavit from Secret Service agent Barton Brown, who headed up former Attorney General Eric Holders security detail. The affidavit reportedly says...

He blames Republicans who lost the party brand out of self-interest and crony capitalism. Naming the battles promised but not waged, Bongino lists: Obamacare, executive amnesty, the Cromnibus, the debt ceiling, Balanced Budget Amendment, school choice, DC Opportunity Scholarships and the Environmental Protection Agency. The reason people are in open rebellion, and make no mistake they are, is not that we lost the battles. Its that...

    The Secret Service is extending protection to GOP presidential contenders Donald Trump and Ben Carson, while beefing up Dem front-runner Hillary Clinton's security, according to a report from Newsmax on Saturday. Trump and Carson will receive agents as early as next week, with each candidate being assigned approximately two dozen agents. The report cites a source close to the agency's planning. The move comes days after Trump, the GOP front-runner, told The Hill in an exclusive interview that he should have Secret Service protection.

    The Donald gave a wide ranging interview to The Hill yesterday which was particularly notable for one comment he made about the Secret Service. Since hes the frontrunner by a wide margin, where is his detail? Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Secret Service should be giving him protection and he suggested partisan politics might be why the agency isnt providing it. In a 90-minute interview with The Hill, the Republican presidential front-runner pointed out that he has attracted large crowds just like Barack Obama did eight years ago as a White House candidate and that by this point...

    <p>Donald Trump on Tuesday said the Secret Service should be giving him protection and he suggested partisan politics might be why the agency isnt providing it. In a 90-minute interview with The Hill, the Republican presidential front-runner pointed out that he has attracted large crowds just like Barack Obama did eight years ago as a White House candidate and that by this point in the 2008 cycle, the Illinois senator had Secret Service protection. Trump doesnt, and hes not happy about it. I want to put them on notice because they should have a liability, he said. Personally, I think if Obama were doing as well as me he wouldve had Secret Service [earlier]. I have by far the biggest crowds. Obama was given Secret Service protection on May 3, 2007. At the time, law enforcement officials acknowledged it was unusually early in the presidential cycle to grant a presidential candidate protection, but also said it was not based on specific threats. Pressed on details, Trump asked one of his private security officers to describe the discussions the Secret Service has had with his campaign. The talks were described as preliminary, and the Trump camp says the Secret Service had not provided a definitive answer on when or if the billionaire businessman will receive government protection. Theyre in no rush because Im a Republican. They dont give a shit, Trump said jokingly. It was an off-the-cuff remark he later clarified. Of course I dont think theyd want anything to happen. But I would think they should be very proactive and want protection for somebody like me that has 20,000 people at any time, Trump said. You would think that they would want to be very proactive, but we have not heard from them.</p>

    Jerry S. Parr, the Secret Service agent credited with saving President Ronald Reagans life during an assassination attempt in 1981, died Friday at a hospice near his home in Washington. He was 85. The death was confirmed by Mr. Parrs wife, Carolyn, who said he died of congestive heart failure. Mr. Parr was just feet away from Mr. Reagan when John W. Hinckley Jr. opened fire on the president outside the Washington Hilton hotel on March 30, 1981. When he was about probably six or seven feet from the car, I heard these shots, Mr. Parr said in a 2013...

    WASHINGTON - The National Archives lost a computer hard drive containing massive amounts of sensitive data from the Clinton administration, including Social Security numbers, addresses, and Secret Service and White House operating procedures, congressional officials said Tuesday. One of former Vice President Al Gore's three daughters is among those whose Social Security numbers were on the drive, but it was not clear which one. Other information includes logs of events, social gatherings and political records. Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper said in a written statement that the agency was preparing to notify affected individuals of the breach. The representative of former...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Monday morning that he is putting a hold on three of President Obamas ambassadorial nominees until the administration shows it is taking steps to punish Secret Service staff involved in leaking unflattering information about a lawmaker. This was apparently a violation of law, and absolutely shocking conduct, Cotton said in an interview. The executive branch all the way up to the West Wing needs to treat this with the seriousness it requires. Cotton called on Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to personally attend to disciplining top Secret Service leaders specifically including new Director Joseph...

    Lets not shy away from what the Secret Service actually was up to in the matter of its illegal spying on Representative Jason Chaffetz: conspiracy to commit blackmail against a member of Congress. Representative Chaffetz has been investigating the scandal-plagued protective agency the habitual drunkenness and whoring of its agents, among other things when Secret Service personnel improperly accessed his protected records in a hunt for dirt. The aim of this was made clear by assistant director Ed Lowery, who wrote to assistant director Faron Paramore: Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out. Critics...

    Her temperment is perfectly unsuited for the presidency. ‘​Good morning, ma’am,” a member of the uniformed Secret Service once greeted Hillary Clinton. “F*** off,” she replied. That exchange is one among many that active and retired Secret Service agents shared with Ronald Kessler, author of First Family Detail, a compelling look at the intrepid personnel who shield America’s presidents and their families — and at those whom they guard. Kessler writes flatteringly and critically about people in both parties. Regarding the Clintons, Kessler presents Chelsea as a model protectee who respected and appreciated her agents. He describes Bill as a...
