‘Unqualified DEI hire?’ Congress wants brief on Kamala’s secret service agent who attacked bosses

The House Oversight Committee is seeking answers about the Secret Service’s hiring decisions after an agent suffered some sort of mental breakdown two months ago.

In a letter written earlier this week to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer specifically cited an incident that occurred on April 22nd at Joint Base Andrews in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

“It was recently reported that a Secret Service agent, tasked with protecting Vice President Kamala Harris, physically attacked her superior (and the commanding agent in charge) and other agents trying to subdue her while on duty at Joint Base Andrews and assigned to the Vice President’s protective detail,” the letter reads.

“A Secret Service spokesperson confirmed that the agent had been ‘removed from their assignment’ following the attack and that the agent ‘began displaying behavior their colleagues found distressing’ and further described the incident as a ‘medical matter,'” the letter continues.

According to Comer, his other sources claimed that the troubled agent even chest-bumped and shoved her superior, “then tackled and punched him while still having her gun in her holster.”

Now knowing this, Comer and other congressional Republicans are raising concerns about “the hiring and screening process for this agent: specifically whether previous incidents in her work history were overlooked during the hiring process as years of staff shortages had led the agency to lower once stricter standards as part of a diversity, equity, and inclusion effort.”

Or DEI, for short. In other words, Republicans fear that the misbehaving Secret Service agent, identified as Michelle Herczeg, had been an unqualified DEI hire.

In his letter, Comer also cited a Bloomberg reporter’s tweet about a circulating petition within the Secret Service that flags concerns about “a number of recent Secret Service incidents indicative of inadequate training” and worse:

Comer concluded the letter by requesting that the Secret Service brief the committee on this matter.

“To assist the Committee’s oversight in this matter, we request you designate the appropriate officials with the U.S. Secret Service to provide a briefing to Committee staff on or before June 13, 2024,” he wrote.

Dovetailing back to Herczeg, she has a history of incidents that suggest she’s a leftist with a victim complex, including one from when she worked as a Dallas police officer roughly 10 years ago.

“A female Dallas police officer is asking for more than $1 million in a gender discrimination lawsuit against the city, claiming she was assaulted by a male superior,” The Dallas Morning News reported in late 2016.

“The suit alleges that Herczeg was retaliated against after she reported sexual harassment and illegal actions of other officers. She also claims she was not allowed to return to a crime reduction team after she alleged a senior officer assaulted her in May 2015,” the report continued.

“Intimidation tactics were used as investigative tools to persuade Herczeg from seeking criminal relief against the officer who assaulted her,” the lawsuit asserted.

It added that what had allegedly transpired was an example of gender discrimination and male-centric culture within the police department.

The case was ultimately dismissed by a judge, suggesting therefore that all of Herczeg’s allegations were bull, surprise, surprise.

Speaking with the New York Post, one of her former police colleagues said last month that they wouldn’t have allowed her “to supervise my dog, much less the vice president.”

“Somebody dropped the ball on this one,” the former colleague added, referencing her hiring by the Secret Service. “How she got in the military, how she got into the police department, how she got in the Secret Service, I don’t have a clue.”

“I was at a loss for words when I heard she was an agent, much less on a detail with somebody that high up. Everybody, including myself, just knew she wasn’t right,” the former colleague concluded.
