Suspended Secret Service Agent Who Said She Wouldn't Take A Bullet For Trump Removed From Top Post

Kerry O'Grady was the Special Agent in Charge for the U.S. Secret Service’s Denver district office. It’s a prominent position, given that she works with the D.C-based advance teams for all presidential visits into the area. Well, she, like many other anti-Trump folks in the country, just couldn’t keep her mouth shut about the 45th president’s upset win over Hillary Clinton. She took to social media, writing on Facebook that she would rather go to jail than take a bullet for Trump. This was posted during the 2016 season. She also voiced her support for Clinton. All of this is barred under the Hatch Act regarding political activity concerning federal employees. Susan Crabtree of The Washington Examiner has been reporting of this story extensively.

The fallout was swift. O’Grady was removed from a retired Secret Service member association—The Association of Former Agents U.S. Secret Service—and she was placed on paid administrative leave.

Crabtree now reports that O’Grady won’t be coming back to her former position, but sources told her that they’re worried she could be transferred to some other federal agency.

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, but some agents are concerned she will simply be transferred to another government job.

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.


Current and former Secret Service agents and officers are worried that top officials at the agency are working to shield O'Grady from being fired.

They are worried that she will be transferred to another division of the Homeland Security Department and allowed to serve out her time until she can retire with a pension as the agency has done with other officials in the public crosshairs.

O’Grady did delete the controversial posts, but we all know that the Internet is forever. She said that her opinions of the president wouldn’t have impacted her ability to execute her duties. Apparently, not everyone felt that way.
