Trump is removing US Secret Service director
United States Secret Service director Randolph Tex Alles is being removed from his position, multiple administration officials tell CNN. President Donald Trump instructed his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to fire Alles. Alles remains in his position as of now but has been asked to leave.
The Secret Service director reports directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, who resigned on Sunday amid growing pressure from the President. The director oversees the Secret Services work on both protection and investigations.
There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nations second-largest national security agency, one senior administration official says.
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsels John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed.
The President in recent weeks empowered Stephen Miller to lead the administrations border policies and hes executing his plan with what amounts to a wholesale decapitation of the Department of Homeland Security leadership, the official says.
Neither the USSS nor the White House immediately responded to CNNs request for comment.
Alles previously served in Customs and Border Protection leadership and also led that agencys Air and Marine Operations. He is a 35-year veteran of the Marine Corps.
It was not immediately clear what prompted his firing, but the Secret Service recently came under scrutiny after a Chinese woman illegally entered the Presidents Mar-a-Lago club carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive containing malware.
Can it be removed?
Thanks in advance.
Some scandal concerning these two that has yet to be leaked ?
Was it the ears?
Will the last department head at DHS please turn out the lights? DHS will be without a permanent leader in most of its top jobs, including Secretary, deputy Secretary, head of FEMA, head of ICE, Customs and Border Protection, and the Secret Service. Francis Cissna, who heads US Citizenship and Immigration, is also rumored ro be at risk.
Trump should replace him with Dan Bongino, a true career public servant who knows the organization, not some career bureaucrat.
Dems are trying to make an issue of the fact that Trump has replaced more high officials than anyone else, as if that’s a bad thing. Trump comes from the business world where you perform or you are replaced. In government they follow the Peter Principle where they rise to the level of incompetence and stay there forever.
There was a major security breach at Mar-A-Lago a Chinese woman carrying malware and computer hard drives got on the property unauthorized.
Thats why Trump fired him.
That SoB has deservedly been fired like a dog !
Kick his ass out, Mr President
Looks like this blogger cut and pasted word for word.
This is why humblegunner is right. Bloggers are scum.
Wow, how many times has he fired him today?
This is why humblegunner is right.
Bloggers are scum.
Now that Senate confirmation has been streamlined to 2 hours of debate, expect a wholesale purging of Obama holdovers, to be replaced by people Trump actually trusts.
That is a good idea.
"How dare he bring the outside world of reality into our we-got-a-good-thing-goin' DC town? Bring him down!"
Perfectly explained. Thanks.
So the US SS let in a Chinese national, into proximity of the President and the associated computer network.
Trump’s resort operations caught her, and brought her to the attention of the US SS, who now can no longer show incompetence.
Deja Vu. The Washington FBI could no longer feign ignorance of Hillary’s SoS fraud when the Southern District of NY FBI agents found Huma’s laptop in October 2016.
A surprise, accidental, October Surprise that likely swung the election.
By the way, I worked at various national laboratories. It was drilled into us that Asian visitors must be escorted by no fewer than two lab employees. Other nation visitors only need one escort.
Yup twice a day .... Just like clockwork.
I had to call for my fainting couch!
