Earlier in the week, the Secret Service was scrambling to cover themselves, and the first family, once it was discovered that a laptop belonging to them had been stolen. The laptop had an assortment of confidential information on it including the floor plans to Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information on the investigation of Hillary’s private server.
Via Daily News:
Authorities have been frantically searching for the laptop since it was stolen Thursday morning.
Some items stolen along with the laptop — including coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it — were later recovered.
But the laptop, along with other documents described as “sensitive,” were still being sought.
The thief stepped out of a car, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent’s vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of her home.
He was then seen on video walking away from the scene with a backpack.
According to the New York Post:
The computer was taken Thursday morning from the driveway of agent Marie Argentieri’s Bath Beach home, the sources said.
The thief drove up to Argentieri’s home around 8:40 a.m., walked right up to her Bajaj motorcycle and took the items. He was then caught on video fleeing the scene on foot, sources said.
First, a visual aid; how and why would one even be transporting a laptop on this?
And if you did decide to wear a backpack in order to drive this to and from your already dangerous job, how do you forget the backpack when you go inside? I could understand this if it were a sedan or an SUV, but there isn’t exactly an expansive space where one can toss things and forget them.
The Secret Service is a highly trained group of agents, trained in plans, and backup plans, and fail safes, and redundancy plans for the fail safes. I know that we all want to believe this was a theft, and for the sake of the agent in question, I hope that it was. But to be perfectly honest, it sounds like a planned drop to me.
