A secret service agent is in hot water today after allowing a laptop containing national security information to be taken from her possession. According to reports, the laptop held the blueprints to Trump Tower, as well as information regarding Hillary’s emails.
According to New York Daily News, the NYPD is “scrambling like mad” to locate the lost computer before the information inside becomes compromised. The device was taken from an empty parked car in Brooklynn.
A police source says:
“The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side. It’s a very big deal.”
The incident happened in the Bath Beach area when an unknown man got out of a car believed to be an Uber, and broke into the Secret Service agent’s vehicle, which was parked outside her home.
Other items stolen were a black bag with the Secret Service emblem on it, the agent’s access keycard, and a few coins. While some of the stolen things were later found, the laptop still has not surfaced.
NY Daily News reports:
“The agent also told investigators that while nothing about the White House or foreign leaders is stored on the laptop, the information on there could compromise national security.”
Why did this insanely huge faux pas never happen under the Obama administration?
