Secret Service Agent’s laptop and sensitive information stolen from her driveway?
According to this story a Secret Service Agent had her laptop, and documents with sensitive information, stolen from the backseat of her car in the driveway of her house stolen at 3:00 in the morning. Here is more:
A laptop computer containing floor plans for Trump Tower, information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation and other national security information was stolen from a Secret Service agent’s vehicle in Brooklyn, police sources told the Daily News.
Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning — and are trying to determine if the thief knew what he was taking or randomly targeted the agent’s vehicle.
NYPD cops were assisting in the investigation but had scant information on exactly what’s on the laptop, sources said.
“The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there’s very little we have on our side,” a police source said. “It’s a very big deal.”
And that was not all that was taken:
Other items stolen include “sensitive” documents, an access keycard, coins, a black zippered bag with the Secret Service insignia on it and Secret Service lapel pins from various assignments — including ones involving Donald Trump, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the United Nations General Assembly and the Pope’s visit to New York, sources said.
You will note that my headline includes a question mark and that is because something is fishy about this story. Here is more:
The thief stepped out of a dark-colored car, possibly an Uber, and stole the laptop from Argentieri’s vehicle, a 2015 Bajaj, which was parked in the driveway of her Bath Beach home, sources said. Neighbors said the thief struck about 3 a.m.
The crook, a man dressed in black, didn’t get back in the car. He was seen on surveillance video walking away from the scene with a backpack holding the laptop, sources said.
It seems odd to me that a Secret Service agent would leave a laptop in her apparently unlocked car in her driveway along with other sensitive information where someone, who seems to have known what he was looking for, could just walk up and take it.
Maybe this is a gross example of incompetence–and if this is the cast the Secret Service is another agency which needs purging–or perhaps there is more to this story. With all of the leaks coming out of the Deep State it makes you wonder if something else was going on here…
