Secret Service Joins Probe of White Powder Scare Involving Trump Jr.’s Wife

The Secret Service has launched an investigation into an unidentified white powder that Venessa Tump, the wife of Donald Trump Jr., came into contact with while opening a piece of mail.

Venessa Trump  and two other people who may have been exposed were taken to a New York hospital, where they later learned the substance was non-hazardous, Reuters reports.

“The substance had arrived by mail and it was addressed to Donald Trump Jr.,” said New York Police Department spokesman Carlos Nieves.

The Secret Service and other agencies have taken white powder seriously since 2001, when anthrax-laced envelopes were sent to media outlets and U.S. lawmakers, killing five people. 

Most cases since then have been hoaxes.

Authorities said the packages had a Boston postmark, but law enforcement officials have declined to discuss it.

“Thankful that Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” Trump Jr. said on Twitter. “Truly disgusting that certain individuals choose to express their opposing views with such disturbing behavior.”

Ex-Secret Service Officer Pens Book That Tells of President Clinton Sneaking Off to Be With Mistresses

By Allan Lengel

This story may not come as much of a shocker.

A book by Gary J. Byrne, a former Secret Service officer in the uniform division, claims President Bill Clinton often snuck away from his wife at the White House to cozy up with “well-known and lesser-known mistresses,” and that a Secret Service officer in the motorcade was nearly killed in a crash during one secret escape, writes Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner.

Byrne, in a book,  Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, writes that Clinton demanded a tiny motorcade to secretly dash around Washington unnoticed, ordering that the cars try to obey laws like stopped lights.

The Secret Service denied trying to obscure CNN cameras from recording President Trump while he was playing golf at his course in West Palm Beach, Fla.

CNN reported that a large white truck was parked on public property in an effort to block nearby journalists from filming the president. 

The Secret Service responded that the agency “is in the business of protection and investigations not in commissioning vehicles to block the media’s view of the President’s golf swing.”

While a CNN film crew set up on a public sidewalk outside the golf course, “a white box truck drove up and obscured the view of the course through the trees,” the network claimed.

Alex Jones, the poster-boy for right-wing conspiracies and paranoia, said he’s helping the Secret Service track down people whom he alleges are plotting to assassinate President Trump.

“I had the Secret Service call me yesterday, and it wasn’t a secret meeting, but they want to come here and — it’s total twilight zone — and want me to brief them on all the data we’ve collated on whose setting up a plan to kill the president,” he claimed during a broadcast of “The Alex Jones Show” on Wednesday.

The Secret Service told the Washington Times that it’s “aware of Mr. Jones’ statements, but as a matter of practice we do not comment on protective intelligence matters.”

The ardent Trump supporter and conspiracy theorist added on his show: “I’m going to develop that plan; and video clips, articles, all of it. And I’m also going to present the plan here. Secret Service didn’t care if I kept it secret. They said that’s fine.”
