White House to name new Secret Service director

White House to name new Secret Service director

Alles is replacing Joseph Clancy, who retired from the agency a second time in March. He led multiple commands in Iraq - including Third Marine Aircraft Wing - with his final Marine Corps assignment serving as the Director for Strategic Planning and Policy at the U.S. Pacific Command. After a 35-year stint in the Marine Corps, Ailes is now serving as acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Randolph Alles, formerly of Customs and Border Protection, is President Trump's choice to lead the Secret Service.

The report stated that IT management had not been an agency priority, and concluded that until Secret Service improved its IT governance, its systems and data would remain vulnerable. A man recently scaled a fence and roamed the White House grounds for almost 17 minutes before he was arrested. 2 Secret Service agents let go over White House fence jumper incident in March, agency says Secret Service limits sidewalk access south of White House Selecting an outsider would.

In 2014, Clancy initially came out of retirement at the behest of President Barack Obama in an attempt to correct issues with the troubled agency.

Randoph "Tex" Alles, shown here testifying before Congress in 2015, is President Trump's pick to head the Secret Service. Two Secret Service agents were fired as a result of that particular breach.

Alles becomes the newest general - and the latest Marine - to serve in the Trump administration. Retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, who served as acting national security adviser until McMaster was picked, is the National Security Council's chief of staff.

The position of Secret Service director is filled by presidential appointment and does not require confirmation by the Senate.
