Secret Service Investigating Incident At Trump Rally: White House

Share

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Secret Service is investigating a confrontation between a Time magazine photographer and a Secret Service agent at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Virginia, the White House said on Tuesday.

“The Secret Service is working with local law enforcement to try to get to the bottom of what exactly happened,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters during a briefing. “The leadership of the Secret Service has indicated that they’ll take appropriate steps based on the conclusion of that investigation.”

The rally on Monday was interrupted by protesters, including some from the Black Lives Matter movement. A photographer who was trying to document their removal from the rally was grabbed by the neck and shoved to the ground by a U.S. Secret Service agent.

    Was this really a Secret Service agent who did so? If so, this guy should be shown the outside of the Treasury Department HQ as soon as possible! If he wants to be one of TRUMP’s THUGS, let him get his paycheck from them – not the Taxpayers!

    Obama has done a poor job overseeing the Secret Service.

    Not quite sure what there is to “investigate”. It’s not like it’s not on camera…
