President Trump is expected to appoint a new Secret Service director with a senior military rank, the Washington Examiner reports.
It would be the first time an appointment was made from outside the Secret Service in modern history.
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, a retired Marin general, is said to be in favor over the appointment of a general to lead the Secret Service and help shakeup the beleaguered agency.
The announcement is expected to be made next week.
The identity of the candidate has not been revealed.
