“THAT IS ABOVE MY PAY GRADE”
by Robert Laity
(Jun. 20, 2013) — Two agents of the U.S. Secret Service paid me a visit today, June 19,2013. Special Agent Greg Gramiccioni and another agent of the Buffalo, New York Office of Homeland Security/Secret Service came to my house to discuss my outspokenness regarding Barack Obama. I was sleeping on a living room chair with my arms inside my shirt because I was a bit cold. I had the Central Air on. The agents were allowed in and saw me taking my arms out of my shirt. The agent had his hand close to his gun and said that it would be best if I took my hands out of my shirt which I was already in the process of doing. Agent Gramiccioni asked me if I knew why they were there. I said that it was probably about my criticism of Obama. The agent said that my use of the words “Execution” and “Death” may be problematic. I told them that I would not be the one doing any executing and told them that I qualified my statements with the words “If Convicted” of the Treason that he now stands accused of. Agent Gramiccioni read from an online comment I made.
I informed the agents that I was on their side and had no intention of bringing harm to Obama. I told them also that I have formal complaints filed against Obama with the FBI and ICE as well as Secret Service. The subject of my frequent submissions of evidence to Mark Sullivan, Director of the Secret Service was broached by me.
I asked Gramiccioni what the status of those investigations was. He replied, “That is above my Pay grade.”
If you recall, Mark Sullivan stopped accepting Email submissions from me by his having blocked/rejected further submissions from my Email address. Now, Mr. Sullivan is due to retire.
The Agents asked if they could look around. I said yes. Three years ago two agents of the Department of Justice visited me with the same concerns. The most recent visit by federal agents involved Department of Homeland Security/Secret Service agents. I was asked several questions. Do I Travel, have I been to Washington, DC and if I own Guns. I was further asked if I ever visit Bomb making websites or other similar websites to which I responded No. I told the agents that I believe that they are risking their lives for a fraud.
I was asked to tone down the use of words such as “execution” or “Death”. I reiterated that the penalty for being convicted of treason or espionage IS death. I asked the agents if they wanted a cup of coffee but they declined. The agents made a cursory inspection of my home. I happened to have some cash on my desk and was asked “Is that counterfeit”? I said no.
We had small talk about my federal service and my health concerns as well as my time in the Navy.
My Brother-in-Law was in my home at the time. The agent was a bit vigilant, putting his hand near his gun again when he heard my brother in law coming out of the bathroom. The agent asked “who is that”? I identified him as my brother in law to the agent. My brother in law was also interviewed by the agents who gave him a business card and asked that he contact them if I went out of State or if I leave the Country.
Agent Gramiccioni noticed my NRA membership card and asked me why I am a member if I don’t own guns? I responded by asking him Why? Is it illegal to be an NRA Member? He said “No”. I told him that I am the President of the Society for the Preservation of Democracy and that I had a vested interest in the Constitution and it’s being followed. After about 30 minutes or so the agents left.
