The Secret Service has faced surveillance in recent months following reports that some agents have been told by members of the president’s details to abandon the mask around Trump. The office continued to draw attention last year after allowing Anthony Ornart, who had previously led the details of the current administration, to serve as political adviser to the White House.
In a statement to the post, agency spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan said, “The office is completely non-political and steadily meeting standards of excellence in these operations, regardless of the parent’s party. I am devoting myself to. “
“For practical and operational security, the agency has not commented on protection operations, including internal decisions regarding agency assignments,” she added.

According to the post, Darryl Volpicelli and Brian McDonough were one of the overseers in the previous administration and will be added to Biden’s details shortly. Volpicelli is reportedly the deputy commander of the team and McDonough is the senior detail supervisor.
