Secret Service Director Julia Pierson will testify before the House Oversight Committee Tuesday morning after one of the worst spells in the agency’s history.
Last week an intruder brandishing a knife penetrated well into the White House before being stopped, the first time someone has made it so far. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported on a 2011 incident in which a man fired seven shots at the White House, one of which shattered a window, while the Secret Service was told to stand down; the agency didn’t respond to the shooting, or even notice the broken window, for four days, and the gunman was caught only because he crashed his car several blocks away.
