A ranking Democratic lawmaker on the House Homeland Security Committee is seeking to strip former President Donald Trump of his Secret Service detail, according to a recent report by Fox News:

Former President Trump was found guilty on felony charges Thursday, raising potential challenges for the Secret Service responsible for protecting him just as a top Democrat is seeking to yank that protection from him.

“Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree in New York v. Trump. The charges were related to alleged payments made ahead of the 2016 presidential election to silence pornographic performer Stormy Daniels about an alleged 2006 extramarital sexual encounter with Trump. Trump denied all charges and any affair with Daniels.

“But the conviction raises the possibility the presumed 2024 Republican nominee could end up being bars. That unprecedented development would raise a number of additional questions, including how his Secret Service protection would adapt.

“In a statement to Fox News Digital, the agency said the outcome of the case ‘has no bearing on the manner in which the United States Secret Service carries out its protective mission.’

“‘Our security measures will proceed unchanged,’ Anthony Guglielmi, chief of communications for the Secret Service, said.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams has previously said the city’s Department of Corrections and the Rikers Island prison in New York are ‘ready’ to receive Trump.”
