Former Secret Service Agent: Upper-Level Management Using Secret Service as Job Fair, Abandoning Rank-and-File

“Cabal”? “Mutiny”? Host Chris Wallace pressed Bongino to elaborate.

“There’s a small group of upper-level management that grew up together, let’s say, within the Secret Service,” explained Bongino, “and the problem is that they are married to the way things used to be done, Chris. Well, the threat footprint has changed. The world has evolved. It’s almost become that they’ve used the Secret Service, this small group — and there are good managers there — almost like a job search service for their secondary careers.”

“The problem with that,” said Bongino, “is the rank-and-file agents feel like the allegiance of the management is not to them, but to say, someone, maybe the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] secretary, who later on they can go into business with together. And it’s created significant problems and a distrust, and in our business trust is all that matters.”
