I would like to publicly renew my apology for this breach of trust and affirm my commitment to restoring it[.]
That’s what Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy said to a joint session of the House and Senate Homeland Security committees. The hearing focused on the Secret Service’s illegal search of Congressman Jason Chaffetz’ (R, UT) background. He also told the session that “dozens were being disciplined.” That discipline is limited to some agents—who are getting a whole 3-12 days of suspension—while no supervisors have been sanctioned.
We don’t even get to know who these few wrist-slappees are.
Clancy’s words of apology are exactly that: words. Nothing more. What is Clancy actually doing to clean up this stopped up sewer? Apparently not much.
