Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Carol Leonnig has another book out next week, and its subject is right in her powerhouse.
The Washington Post reporter won her Pulitzer for reporting on security issues with the Secret Service and, more recently, co-wrote the White House exposé A Very Stable Genius.
Now, she’s releasing Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service, a copy of which the Guardian obtained before its May 18 publication.
Among the various revelations is one that two members of the Trump family became “inappropriately — and perhaps dangerously — close” to some of the agents, according to the Guardian.
Specifically, Donald Trump’s now former daughter-in-law Vanessa began dating one agent, while the amount of time his daughter Tiffany spent with a different agent began causing concern among leadership.
Secret Service agents aren’t supposed to form personal relationships with those they’re assigned to protect.
Zero Fail, according to its blurb, also takes sharp aim at issues with the Secret Service during Barack Obama's presidency.
