Secret Service may disable text messaging on employees' phones, memo says

by News Update

The US Secret Service may temporarily disable text messaging on employee cell phones, two sources familiar with the matter tell CNN, as the agency scrambles to respond to concerns it may have erased messages relevant to investigations into January 6, 2021.
Secret Service Director James Murray sent an agency-wide memo on Tuesday, the details of which are being first reported by CNN, informing employees that it is considering temporarily suspending the use of texts while the agency fixes gaps in how it retains those messages, according to sources who described the memo. CNN’s Jessica Schneider reports. #jessicaschneider #CNN #News

Secret Service should not be using personal mobile devices in performance of their job. I doubt it is permissible under USSS or DHS policies. If personal devices are allowed, they are considered non-federal information systems and are required to provide the same security protections as a government-owned mobile device. Notably, personal devices would not likely meet the same encryption standards as federal mobile devices. Personally owned devices would also not be under the control of the USSS. Given that the excuse was that data was lost during a phone replacement program, it is odd to seek restrictions (rather than prohibition) on the use of personal mobile devices.

"expected to back up their own phones" You must be kidding me!

There was nothing interesting or informative in this report.

The Secret Service, by not ensuring the proper preservation of records is aiding and abetting the continued criminal activity of Donald Trump.

Derry Taylor August 4, 2022 - 10:09 AM

I used to see Trump on the cover of sleazy rags like The Enquirer while on a grocery line. The first thing I thought was that he looked like a Mob Boss. Sometimes first impressions are accurate.

Corruption Breeds Corruption. What a Freaking Mess. Trump must NEVER ever hold any future federal office.

John August 4, 2022 - 10:13 AM

Audit every political and their family yearly. Look into their LLC’s and give us their texts and emails as well using the freedom of information act.

Everyone is corrupt. Clean it all up

RN,BSN,PHN August 4, 2022 - 10:13 AM

I'm really tired of hearing the long evolving story full of excuses. Enough!Ultimately someone gave the order for text messages to be deleted by whatever means were used setting up chain of deletion events. Convict and jail their a$$

It's amaze me how the same group of people from the Republicans party was going after Hillary email but now they are quiet as a cricket with all the phones that have been delete it before or after Jan 6 2021. Where is fox news and the conservative talk show host? You see the hypocrisy. American people whether you believe it or not for the last four years we was run by a criminal organization led by 45

Stop with the b*******.

Even with everything we've learned so far, we've probably only scratched the surface. The depth of corruption and treachery revealed within every dept. under TFG just deepens with every passing day.

Trump 2020 August 4, 2022 - 10:16 AM

Trump is the most loved person alive.

MVVpro August 4, 2022 - 10:17 AM

I'm starting to think we will never know the truth about the assassination of president Kennedy. Also, how Trump got away with being helped by Putin in 2016 and inviting his ambassador into the White House without any Americans present. Something is very wrong in American security services and the Pentagon.

President Biden, Sir, fire ALL of your employees & hire patriots!

Nils Telle August 4, 2022 - 10:20 AM

The secret service destroyed important tex messages that have hidden serious issues need to be held to account to the American public,and don’t forget all tex and voicemails are recorded and cannot be destroyed but held in a server for several months,Americans are being fooled as all recordings are stored,

Troy Sierra August 4, 2022 - 10:22 AM

The superpower of the world. That runs a world class espionage. That always has plan A,B,C, and D. That has spy satellites, that has foreign correspondents that speak better than native speaks. That plan any would be assassination threats.

I guess it's just the secret service agency that has level kindergarten running detail devices that cannot be run properly or saved. I would gladly trade my 42 thousand dollar yearly job. With any secret service personnel for their pay.
