House Report Concludes Secret Service Is ‘in Crisis,’ Beset by Leadership Problems

A yearlong investigation into the Secret Service has found an agency “in crisis,” beset by low morale, scandals and the failure to provide adequate protection, the Associated Press reports.

The report by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee found that facilities that are secured by the agency were breached or had attempted breaches 143 times.

The report faults poor leadership and congressional budget cuts that have left the agency with a “staffing crisis.”

Following the report’s release, President Obama expressed “absolute” confidence in Joe Clancy, who is the agency’s director.

“This report reveals that the Secret Service is in crisis,” said the committee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.

“Morale is down, attrition is up, misconduct continues and security breaches persist. Strong leadership from the top is required to fix the systemic mismanagement within the agency and to restore it to its former prestige.”
