Secret Service Smut: Ed Lowery Viewing, Leaking of Jason Chaffetz Application

The Secret Service has turned into a Gestapo, running wild and dirty. What smut haven’t we heard about them? Until now, we hadn’t heard of a possible move to blackmail a sitting Congressman. As Rep. Jason Chaffetz chaired the House Oversight and Reform Committee investigating Secret Service involvement in soliciting prostitution, abuse of alcohol, and White House security breaches –– while protecting the president –– just minutes after the hearing began, close to fifty members of the Secret Service agency viewed confidential information about Chaffetz once applying for a job with the agency. Seems there was no “there there.” One week after the hearing, Ed Lowery blamed his own “stess and his anger.” Typical smutty democrat-run agency.

One week after the hearing – note that Ed Lowery blame his own “stess and his anger:”

One week later, Assistant Director Ed Lowery suggested leaking embarrassing information about Chaffetz in retaliation for aggressive investigations by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee into a series of agency missteps and scandals, the report said. Days later, on April 2, the information about Chaffetz unsuccessfully applying for a job at the Secret Service was published by The Daily Beast, an Internet publication.

“Some information that he might find embarrassing needs to get out. Just to be fair,” Lowery wrote March 31 in an email to fellow Assistant Director Faron Paramore.

Lowery, who is in charge of training, told the inspector general he did not direct anyone to release information about Chaffetz and “believed it would have been inappropriate to do so,” the report said. He told Roth the email was “reflecting his stress and his anger.” Source: ABC News

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson “personally apologized” to Chaffetz. Don’t we all feel better now? In the ABC article linked above, Chaffetz is quoted saying he did apply, was NEVER interviewed and didn’t know why he was rejected, but thought it was due to his age, maybe mid-30s at the time. The AP’s Alicia A. Caldwell, said his 2003 application was stamped “Better Qualified Applicant.” No other information about that stamp has been leaked that we know of, but half-a-hundred “public servants” know, and it’s likely it was nothing more than looking for a brawnier man than Jason Chaffetz.

Perhaps now that they’ve moved on from buying Colombian women to targeting congressmen, somebody in Washington can get around to treating these criminals like the criminals they are. But that should not be the end of the housekeeping. The Secret Service is, undeniably, a rogue police agency infected with a culture of lawlessness. Director Joseph Clancy has had an opportunity to address this, and he has failed. He should be relieved of his duties, and so should Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson if he cannot get this heavily armed goon squad under control. And perhaps it is time to start thinking about transferring the Secret Service’s law-enforcement functions to the FBI and its protective functions to a new agency, one less prone to behaving like a crime syndicate.

How embarrassing is it that the Secret Service would LEAK information to a website like the Daily Beast? Some are looking for heads to roll. Bwahahaahahahah!
