CNN: US Secret Service bringing in every available agent to White House and Naval Observatory

US Secret Service bringing in every available agent to White House and Naval Observatory

From CNN's Betsy Klein

The US Secret Service is significantly ramping up coverage and bringing additional agents from the region to the White House, Naval Observatory, and USSS headquarters after today’s unrest, a source familiar with the situation said.

A USSS official also told CNN that Secret Service was the first federal agency deployed when the US Capitol Police asked for assistance from local and federal law enforcement.

The agents on detail for Vice President Mike Pence and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were present today and worked in their roles focused on securing their protectees, but when Capitol Police put out the call for assistance, USSS sent additional uniformed division and special agents to Capitol Hill to assist. They were subsequently joined by other law enforcement agencies, the official said.

4. He tried to get Pence as well

He kicked Pence's Chief of Staff out of the WH as well.

I don't think they see eye to eye anymore.

2. Why the White House

He is the guy leading this mob. I know he tried to get his VP as well so the Naval Observatory makes sense.
