Oh, so you can work for the government *and* get fired. Who knew? It’s about time.
The Secret Service fired two of its agents for letting a White House fence-jumper get within steps of the president’s front door.
Police arrested Jonathan Tran, 26, of California last month for climbing over a series of security gates and fences — and spending 15 minutes on White House grounds — while the Secret Service struggled to find him.
Now two agents who were posted close to the breach have been fired, CNN reported, citing two unnamed law enforcement sources.
The axed agents were guarding posts near the Treasury Building and the entrance to East Executive Avenue when Tran hopped a barrier separating the Treasury Building and the White House just before midnight March 10.
President Trump was in the White House at the time, and Secret Service agents on routine patrol stumbled on Tran just outside the White House’s South Portico entrance.
Tran, who was carrying a backpack at the time, claimed he had an appointment and was a “friend of the president.”
Both agents had less than a year on the job, the station reported.
So the Secret Service assigns rookies to guard the White House and president. Amazing.
