Secret Service Compromised? – Shocking Rumors Spreading
(DailyVantage.com) – As part of the discovery process surrounding the Capitol riots of January 6, 2021, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Inspector General, Joseph Cuffari, briefed the House Select Committee on “access issues” relating to the United States Secret Service (USSS). On July 15, the January 6 Select Subcommittee subpoenaed the USSS for its records, explicitly asking for text messages that took place on January 5 and 6, 2021. The DHS Office of the Inspector General (OIC) also requested those records. The agency agreed to answer the requests “swiftly.” However, it’s what came to light after that has some saying the Secret Service is compromised.
According to the USSS, a “device-replacement program” deleted the messages from January 5 and 6, 2021, despite the agency previously saying the migration hadn’t impacted any of the texts the Select Committee and OIG requested.
Then, the agency quickly changed its position, with USSS spokesman Anthony Guglielmi saying it was probably impossible to recover the deleted messages, and the agency had no new messages to provide the committee.
The U.S. Secret Service has determined it has no new texts to provide Congress relevant to its Jan. 6 investigation, and that any other texts its agents exchanged around the time of the 2021 attack on the Capitol were purged.https://t.co/nKf3nFmOAc

According to the OIG, however, the USSS deleted the text messages after they were requested, which some view as shady behavior taken with the intent to hide information. Additionally, the Secret Service failed to do its own performance review of the events surrounding January 6.
The agency came under intense scrutiny, calling its transparency and credibility into question following Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony regarding former President Donald Trump’s behavior that day.
Each side is currently contradicting the other. Cuffari says the USSS isn’t cooperating, while Guglielmi says the agency has been and will continue to provide whatever it can.
Do you think there’s cause to worry about the Secret Service?
