The Washington Examiner reported that O'Grady then told her Facebook followers, which included former and current Secret Service agents, that she couldn't protect Trump.

In the same post where she made her controversial comments, O'Grady also said that she struggles to not violate the Hatch Act, which prevents federal employees from posting comments on social media or other places on the internet that "advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office or partisan political group".

Kerry O'grady, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service's Denver district said that she would sooner face jail time than lay down her life for the commander-in-chief. So I keep quiet and skirt the median.

O'Grady continued: "But this world has changed and I have changed". I am with Her.

But recently an agent changed her mind about that pledge, and in the process has been relieved of her duties and placed on administrative leave.

The Secret Service launched an investigation when it learned of O'Grady's comments and two weeks ago posted her former job as an open position within the agency, the Washington Examiner reported Sunday.

A man at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort is claiming he got by Secret Service to take a selfie in the president's private study - a claim which Secret Service is reportedly disputing.

The Secret Service has really been taking a beating over the past few years. In an agency-wide email, it was announced that Smith was transferred to another position within DHS. After all, it's called the Secret Service, not the Overt Service.

O'Grady doesn't have to worry about protecting the president now.

Other agents complained that O'Grady was a liability to the agency which is already under scrutiny.
