President Biden plans to pardon three people, including the first Secret Service agent to serve on presidential detail. 

Abraham Bolden, 86, is among “three people who have demonstrated their commitment to rehabilitation and are striving every day to give back and contribute to their communities,” Biden said in a statement, NBC News reports.

Bolden, who served on President John F. Kennedy’s detail, was charged with bribery in 1964 after he was accused of trying to sell a copy of a Secret Service file. He was convicted in a second trial after the first one ended in a hung jury.

Key witnesses acknowledged they lied during the second trial, but Bolden was denied a retrial and served several years in federal prison. 

Bolden, of Chicago, has long insisted he is innocent and wrote in a book that he was targeted for blowing the whistle on racist and unprofessional behavior in the Secret Service.

McCarthy Warns of Possible Impeachment of Mayorkas over Immigration

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Republicans may try to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. 

McCarthy made the statement Monday during a visit to the southern border, The Hill reports

“This is his moment in time to do his job,” McCarthy said. “But at any time if someone is derelict in their job, there is always the option of impeaching somebody.”

Mayorkas is scheduled to testify before the House on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Republicans are opposed to lifting Title 42, which has allowed the U.S. to deny asylum-seekers a hearing.

The Biden administration said it plans to lift Title 42 on May 23. 

Mayoraka’s “first response to us should be, ‘We should not lift Title 42,’ ” McCarthy said. “They’re not prepared to protect, and we cannot sustain what will happen to this nation.” 

Although Democrats have a slim majority in the House, that could change in the November mid-terms, which would make impeachment far more likely.
