Ex-agent blasts lower standards for women in presidential protection

President Obama signing in former Secret Service Director Julia Pierson

A former Secret Service agent has blasted the influence of political correctness in the presidential protection detail, asserting lower standards put in place for qualification of female agents are “inviting disaster for the president.”

Dan Bongino, author of “Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All,” was discussing recent breaches of White House security on Sunday’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s AM 970 The Answer.

Bongino, a former member of Presidents Bush and Obama’s security detail and instructor at the Secret Service’s training academy, called recent security lapses – including a fence jumper who penetrated the White House on Sept. 19 and a contractor who carried a gun on an elevator with the president himself only three days earlier – “unforgivable.”

“These are clear lapses, and I don’t think anybody should try to put lipstick on it,” Bongino said.
