The U.S. Secret Service investigates threats, possible currency crimes and provides security to visiting dignitaries and certain administration officials

(Jul. 8, 2018) — At approximately 9:12 p.m. EDT on Sunday evening, The Post & Email contacted the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) to inquire as to whether or not it was aware of an editorial in The New York Times issuing a “call to arms” and urging “Democrats and progressives to take a page from ‘The Godfather’ and go to the mattresses” on the “issue” of the President Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee.

The “opinion” column is titled, “Democrats: Do Not Surrender the Judiciary.”

The nomination, which is expected to be announced at 9:00 p.m. EDT on Monday night, comes after U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement at the end of the high court’s spring term late last month.

Interestingly, although The Times’s articles are copy-protected, the article in question is fully copyable.

After our call was answered by the Secret Service, we immediately identified ourselves as media. The individual responded courteously to our inquiry, stating that it would be better directed to a particular division.

After he transferred us, we again identified ourselves as media, and the agent with whom we spoke answered our question.  When we asked if we could quote him for an article, he responded in an agitated fashion, “No, you may not; no, you may not.”

When we attempted to pose another question, he hung up.

    The USSS obviously has not purged those ‘cranky’ employees that reluctantly protected the fake, the fraud, and the forger – aka B. HUSSEIN Obama and his regime.
