Why does it always seem like those closest to Democrats are the least trustworthy? We know all about the people who hobnob with the likes of the Obamas and Clintons. Some of them are now in prison.
The same can be said of Joe Biden and his family. We all know about Joe’s son and brother—who can’t seem to stay out of trouble. But it gets even worse for Joe.
It turns out, that some of the people closest to Joe’s team, his wife, and the White House—on a daily basis—were caught scheming. And the scandal is worse than you’d think.
From Real Clear Politics:
More details are emerging about the four Secret Service employees entangled in an alleged bribery scheme carried out by two men accused of masquerading as Department of Homeland Security law enforcement agents…
RealClearPolitics has learned that another Secret Service special agent involved in the alleged bribery is assigned to President Biden’s detail, those agents who accompany the president nearly everywhere he goes and stand by his side during the most sensitive of discussions and private moments…
Both U.S. citizens accused of the bribery hold passports with visas to Iran and Pakistan. They were allegedly impersonating DHS officials and attempted to bribe four members of the elite force that protects the president, vice president, and their families.
This is pretty serious. Four agents tasked with protecting Biden and other members of the White House have been caught up in a bribery scheme.
It appears that two men posed as DHS officials and tried to bribe these two agents. Two of them were Secret Service who guarded both Joe and Jill Biden. The two other were from the Uniformed Division—which protected the White House and vice president’s residence.
What’s even more disturbing is that the two men who allegedly tried to bribe them held Iranian and Pakistan passports. Reports say they are U.S. citizens—but the existence of those passports is deeply troubling.
Who were these men working for? And why did four agents fall for this scheme so readily? What did they tell these men? And where did that information end up?
The fallout of this investigation has yet to be felt. But it will certainly force the White House to walk up and start taking this situation seriously.
We’ve seen Biden’s administration fail on the job repeatedly. But failing to vet these men for such an important job is totally unacceptable.
