A Secret Service officer assigned to protect former President Bill Clinton during his visit to Bulgaria was recalled from the country because of “an off-duty altercation with hotel staff” according to a report from ABC News.
The purpose of Clinton’s visit to Bulgaria earlier this month, as announced by the Clinton Foundation, was “for a convening of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).” While there, the former president promised to work to expand U.S. corporate influence in the country. Bulgaria has been a target of globalist forces such as the Clinton Foundation as they attempt to quash the considerable opposition to the European Union and the globalist agenda in the country.
A Secret Service spokesperson told the media, “On May 10, a Secret Service officer assigned to support protective functions on an overseas trip to Sofia, Bulgaria was recalled to the United States by the Secret Service after an off-duty altercation with hotel staff. A second employee who witnessed this incident was also recalled. The individuals were removed prior to the arrival of the protectee, and our Office of Professional Responsibility has opened an internal investigation into the incident.”
The Secret Service added that it has “extremely strict codes of conduct governing employee behavior and should this investigation reveal any policy violations or misconduct, individuals will face disciplinary action. All employees involved in this incident have been placed on administrative leave and access to Secret Service sites, facilities, and computer systems has been suspended pending the results of this investigation.”
The incident in Bulgaria is the latest in a series of embarrassments for the agency, which include a recent break-in at National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s home while agents were on duty.
