The now-infamous senior U.S. Secret Service agent who claimed she would not “take a bullet” for President Donald Trump is heading out the door.
She will officially be removed from her top-level position by the Secret Service. This comes after the completion of an investigation into her recent anti-Trump political statements on Facebook.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The Secret Service will permanently remove a top special agent from her position after an investigation into her Facebook comments that she would rather not defend President Trump or take “a bullet” from him.
About two weeks ago, the Secret Service placed the agent’s prior post — the special agent in charge of the Denver District, the top job in that office — on a list of agency openings, according to two Secret Service sources.
Kerry O’Grady, the agent in question, is current administrative leave amid an internal Secret Service investigation into her Facebook comments about Trump.
The post in question said: “As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act,” referring to the act that prohibits staff within the executive branch from engaging in political activities.
“So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides.”
She continued: “But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.”
