The latest case of U.S. Secret Service agents blocking reporters from asking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton are “dangerous,” and could lead to media being threatened for getting too close to the candidate, according to a long-time former agent.
As Written By Paul Bedard for The Washington Examiner:
Dan Bongino, who was on Clinton’s security detail when she ran for the Senate in 2000, told Secrets, “This is dangerous. This is a dangerous development.”

“I think what’s happening is kind of a form of ‘security regulatory capture.’ What I mean by that is that the guys now with the Clinton campaign are becoming really close with the staff because they’ve been there a while, I’ve seen it happen. And they’re doing the staff’s job with guns which is very dangerous. They should not be doing that, that’s the staff’s job,” said Bongino
