According to what police sources told the Daily News, A laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service agent’s vehicle in Brooklyn.
The agency confirmed that an agency-issued laptop was stolen, but it did not offer details on its contents.
In a statement given on Friday, the agency said: “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-issued laptops contain multiple layers of security including full disk encryption and are not permitted to contain classified information,” the statement continued.
The agency said an investigation is ongoing and that it would withhold further comment “until the facts are gathered.”
According to Daily News:” Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning.”
“Some items stolen along with the laptop — including coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it — were later recovered.”
“But the laptop, along with other documents described as “sensitive,” were still being sought.”
“The agent reported the laptop contained floor plans for Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.”
WOW…It looks like it was a bad week for the Secret Service.. first, the intruder breached security, then a few days later, Secret Service agents took a selfie with one of Trump’s grandsons and now this. The secret service best get their heads in the game!
This agency needs to take drastic measures. They shouldn’t allow this kind of problems even exist!
This secret agent who allowed this to happen doesn’t need to be just fired, but also needs to be charged with a crime against the safety and security of our President and our country!
At the end, no matter how hard you try to drain the swamp there’s always going to be sludge there. Obviously, you need to go back and clean out some more!
