Senior Secret Service Agent Suggests on Facebook That She Wouldn’t Take a Bullet for Trump
It seems pretty clear, from her Facebook postings, that Kerry O’Grady is in violation of the Hatch Act. That alone suggests she should be removed from her supervisory position with the Secret Service. If she “refuses to take a bullet for him” (Donald Trump), then she should have nothing to do with protecting him. Period. – Shorty Dawkins

A senior U.S. Secret Service agent is under investigation after writing a series of scathing Facebook posts assailing Donald Trump, including one in which she claimed she would rather endure jail time than take a bullet for someone she considered to be a “disaster” for the country.
Via the Washington Examiner:
Kerry O’Grady, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service’s Denver district, oversees coordination with Washington-based advance teams for all presidential candidate [sic] and presidential trips to the area, including all upcoming or future trips by the president, vice president or Trump administration officials.
Despite her senior security role, she has made her disdain for Trump and his incoming administration clear to her Facebook followers, who included current and former Secret Service agents and other people who were employees at the time of the posts. O’Grady’s posts triggered at least one complaint to the office that oversees investigations into Secret Service misbehavior, two knowledgeable sources told the Washington Examiner.
In one Facebook post O’Grady wrote at 11:07 p.m. on a Sunday in October, she endorsed Hillary Clinton and said she would endure “jail time” rather than “taking a bullet” for what she regarded as a “disaster” for America.
While the post didn’t mention Trump by name, it was clear O’Grady was referring to him.
