Status of Secret Service Agent Who Wouldn’t Take Bullet for Trump Beyond Disturbing

(WASHINGTON FREE BEACON) — The senior Secret Service agent who said she did not want to take “a bullet” for President Trump did not suffer several disciplinary actions imposed on other agents and officers for allegations of similarly serious or lesser misconduct, according to multiple sources from the Secret Service community and attorneys specializing in federal law enforcement labor and employment law.

Kerry O’Grady, the agent in question, was removed from her position as head of the Secret Service’s Denver district in March amid an investigation into her pre-election Facebook comments about Trump. O’Grady remains on paid administrative leave and retains her security clearance six months after the agency first started looking into the allegations of misconduct against her.

Additionally, senior managers have never placed O’Grady on a “Do Not Admit” list—an agency-wide notification that an employee whose conduct is under investigation is not allowed access to any Secret Service offices or resources, according to two former agents.

Despite the obvious efforts to protect the agency from employees accused of serious misconduct that could pose a security threat, the sources describe the “Do Not Admit” list also as a “shaming device” and an “intimidation tool” that senior managers have inconsistently used in recent years against employees facing less-serious allegations of misconduct.
