Just months after Secret Service Director Julia Pierson was forced out of her job, the second-ranking official was stepping down, the Secret Service said Monday [2].

The Washington Post reports that Deputy Director Alvin “A.T.” Smith was ousted just three days before he was to testify during a House oversight committee about spending cuts and officer training.

Smith, 56, has served in the position for three years, overseeing the day-to-day operations.

Smith has been offered another position in Homeland Security.

“His contributions to the Agency have been invaluable,” the Secret Service’s acting director, Joseph P. Clancy, said in a statement.
