The Secret Service leaked Jason Chaffetz’s personal information to the Daily Beast in an effort to intimidate and embarrass him

October 1, 2015

  The Secret Service has not exactly covered itself in glory over the last couple of years, having become embroiled in drug and prostitution scandals. (Not to mention letting a man jump the White House fence and waltz into the White House) House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz has been investigating these transgressions and needless to say the Secret Service is not happy with him.

  In fact the Secret Service is so unhappy with him that they began a smear campaign against him in an attempt to intimidate, embarrass and discredit him by leaking some of his personal information to The Daily Beast.

  Here is more, and this comes not from a vast right-wing conspiracy but rather from an Inspector General’s report:

The establishment news website the Daily Beast served as the delivery boy for the Secret Service’s smear job, by posting a weak hit-piece in April 2015 against House Oversight Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz

Daily Beast reporter Tim Mak published the April 2 piece “Congressman Who Oversees Secret Service Was Rejected By Secret Service,” detailing how Chaffetz unsuccessfully applied to be a Secret Service agent in 2003.

The Secret Service leaked that information to Mak in an effort to “embarrass” Chaffetz, according to an Inspector General report released Wednesday.

“Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out. Just to be fair,” Secret Service Assistant Director Edward Lowery told a colleague in an email two days before Mak’s story ran. At least 45 Secret Service agents shared the information with each other prior to the leak, says the report.

  Here is what Jason Chaffetz had to say about this news:

“Certain lines should never be crossed. The unauthorized access and distribution of my personal information crossed that line,” Chaffetz said in a statement.

“It was a tactic designed to intimidate and embarrass me and frankly, it is intimidating. It’s scary to think about all the possible dangers in having your personal information exposed. The work of the committee, however, will continue. I remain undeterred in conducting proper and rigorous oversight.”

  With all of the lines the Secret Service has crossed it is not surprising it would decide to cross one more, in fact it has become expected from a regime which has gone so far as to target conservatives using the IRS simply for opposing the agenda.

    As I said on twitter earlier, the U.S S.S. seems to be taking a page from the German SS notebook, Or maybe O-bla-bla’s new friend Putin gave O-bla-bla some KGB tactics. And this out of control S,S. doesn’t trouble O one little bit.
    As Janis said so many years ago, “freedom is when you ain’t got nothing to loose”. Who needs ISIS when we have our own government working against us.

      I was going to mention the German SS and call our SS jack-booted thugs but I didn’t. I think the comparison is apt, it is clear they are trying to intimidate political opponents and it is also clear to me that Obama approves of it.

    There are no federal agencies/departments/branches/employees/agents who I trust at all. Our entire federal government is completely corrupted and out of control. We need a restorative complete reboot.

    We can only wonder at how many the S.S and other agencies did manage to intimidate. As an aside, we would not have Obamacare if they had not pulled that stunt and falsely charged the Alaskan Senator whose name escapes me.He was ultimately vindicated, but we lost his vote. That is how it is done now.

      I forget his name as well but that is a perfect example of how far the left will go in order to push their radical agenda!
