The Secret Service was in on the Coup

I could be snarky and just say Secret Service personnel are loyal to a fault. Or maybe I could ask, “What don’t you get about the ‘Secret’ part?” and walk away. One thing’s for sure, I am not buying into the lame excuse the Secret Service lost date because they updated their phones. That is highly improbable, if not impossible.

Anyone with knowledge of databases and software knows a backup is typically an automated process in which a central server stores all data. When migrating to new hardware or software, the best practice is first backing up globally. I am sure the Secret Service did this, and it’s my contention that if any texts were deleted from their system it happened because someone ordered it.

As we learned as a result of a particular individual constantly whining about Hilary Clinton’s missing thirty thousand emails, both personal and official, there are ways deleted data can be retrieved. Then there’s the National Security Agency. Wouldn’t they have stored data from an entity as important as the Secret Service?

The creation of the United States Secret Service had nothing to do with protecting the President. The agency was created in 1865 to end rampant counterfeiting. By the end of the Civil War, nearly one-third of all US currency was counterfeit. To stabilize the country financially, the Secret Service was established as a bureau of the Treasury Department. Abraham Lincoln started the discussion for a secret police force to get after counterfeiters. Then, when President William McKinley was assassinated in 1901, Congress requested the Secret Service provide presidential protection. Later, the agency assumed full-time responsibility for presidential protection. Currently the people of the Secret Service are responsible for not only presidential protection but also for investigating currency and credit card fraud.

According to their website, the Secret Service employs approximately 3,200 special agents, 1,300 uniformed division officers and more than 2,000 other technical, professional and administrative support personnel. This is a small group, which should be easy to manage. By comparison, the Office of the Inspector General has approximately 1,600 personnel. Note also there is one more institution involved in this caper. It’s the National Archives, which keeps records and data for future generations and, in a sense, acts as an arbitrator of truth.

There is no question that the Secret Service broke the law by not having all texts and messages from January 5th and 6th, 2021. Donald Trump’s ripping and flushing of written matter shows he understands the power of physical records. Remember, he had his minions move the transcripts of calls with leaders, like the one in Ukraine, to a super secure server so only he could control the information. That makes Trump more a cagey crook and less a mastermind. He cherry-picked information to release with the primary goal of making him look good. He characterized his phone call with Volodymyr Zelenskyy as “perfect,” yes, perfect enough to get him impeached. Trump’s judgement on what is good and bad has been way far south of dependable throughout his entire life.

Secret Service agent Bobby Engel knows what happened on January 6, 2021, and he should be asked to come before the Select Committee hearing and testify. I suspect he won’t do that because there might be evidence he ordered the deletions because such evidence would make Trump look bad. It’s strange to me a man who can tell us what happened is not going to be put on the stand. What country is this? This was an insurrection ordered by the President of the United States, and people like Engel are part of a lengthy line of Cult of Protection members.

It’s amazing how much the Secret Service did not reveal about various presidents over the years. They protected FDR’s wheelchair as much as they protected him. They were also less than open about JFK’s assassination. They use the phrase, “taking a bullet for the president” as their mantra but depending on who the president is they will stray from the creed. When Trump was hospitalized because of Covid, he made his Secret Service team drive him around the neighborhood to wave at fans. Some believe a few of those agents contracted Covid from Trump, which is not exactly taking a bullet but that foolish misuse of protection was unnecessary.

The Secret Service text messages are not the end-all and be-all in the case of the insurrection. Even if we never see the chatty-Cathy messages between agents during Trump’s speech on January 6th, it’s clear many of them were on the Trump train, liked his style and maybe even liked him personally. They were out to protect him then and they are out to protect him now. They probably said some embarrassing things about “Mogul” and may have revealed some of his astonishingly treasonous maneuvers that day. Mogul was the Secret Service codename for Trump.

I doubt the Secretary of the Treasury has much to do with the Secret Service regarding the protection of federal officials, after all, they were moved to Homeland Security after 2003, but wait for it, the Treasury controls the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence for laundrying and fraud. Do you feel safe? But Congress and the Office of the Inspector General should have responsible oversight. The Secret Service knew they were going to “lose” the text messages of its agents because they told them to individually back up their data, but it’s not their data. Those are federal employees, so why doesn’t the agency and Homeland Security have a copy of all communications?

Here is some terrible truth. We’ve lost faith in the White House. We’ve lost faith in Congress. We’ve lost faith in the Supreme Court, and now America is watching the Secret Service running an inside game to protect their boss from bullets and bad news coverage. They were so worried they would look like partisan hacks they erased their messaging. Their lack of transparency will destroy any respect we have for them. If the Secret Service is not open to investigation, it makes them no better than secret organizations like Yale University’s Skull & Bones. When gross and ill-informed Steve Bannon talks about administrative and deep state operatives, he’s talking about a secret organization being controlled by a few in darkness. Ah, yes, the Secret Service. It’s all in their name.










  1. You can’t follow this story without a growing internal chill. Did Donald Trump have security agents more loyal to him than to the oaths they swore when they took their jobs? If he corrupted this group of federal employees, who has he planted in other departments, and what are they up to? You know you wish it was mere incompetence, but as more and more is revealed, it’s just sickening!

  2. Even if it proves out that the Secret Service deleted all of these texts by accident — a real threat to credibility, there — the first takeaway HAS to be that President Biden is in real, physical danger. These people have raised incompetence to pandemic levels!
