(Washington/Salt lake City) The Utah congressman most critical of lapses and missteps by the U.S. Secret Service had a simple reaction to the resignation of the agency’s director Wednesday.
(“It was the right decision,”)
He added, “It’s in the best interest of the country. It’s in the best interest of the Secret Service. It’s going to need a long-term fix. But it was time for her to go.” The resignation of Secret Service director Julia Pierson came a day after Chaffetz and a House committee grilled her about the Sept. 19 incident involving a Texas Army veteran who jumped the White House fence and made it deep into the executive mansion before being stopped.
