A senior Secret Service agent was fired after a January public social media post in which she admitted that she wouldn’t take a bullet for the President — and she’s no longer the only person in service careless enough to make such a comment in public.
A National Guardsman has been arrested following threats he made against the life of Vice-President Mike Pence. While 9/11 was one everyone’s mind, apparently assassinating Pence was on his.
According to the Daily Mail:
Twenty-two-year-old William Robert Dunbar of Berlin, New Jersey was charged Saturday after his comments before Pence’s trip for the annual observance of the Flight 93 crash. Richland Township police claim that Dunbar was on duty at the Army National Guard Training Center when he said, ‘If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president.’
Witnesses said they contacted commanding officers after they heard Dunbar make the threat twice.
Police said Dunbar was taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center for evaluation and then to county prison in lieu of $250,000 bond.
A picture of Dunbar’s mugshot obtained by a local news station is pictured below:
Dunbar was sent to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center for a mental evaluation prior to being sent to county jail, but the results of that evaluation have not been made public.
