Secret Service Investigating Radio Host Glenn Beck Over Alleged Threats to Donald Trump

The Secret Service is investigating conservative radio host Glenn Beck following comments he made on his radio show about Donald Trump.

Beck said his remarks were not directed at the GOP front-runner.

On his radio show Friday, Beck responded to his producer’s mocking statements about Beck being in the shoes of Trump’s rivals: “Was it  gigantic shoes?” producer Stu Burguiere asked.

“If I was close enough and I had a knife. Really.  I mean the stabbing just wouldn’t stop,” Beck responded.

Beck wasn’t referring to Trump, Burguiere said on Facebook.

“It was reported that Glenn had threatened to stab a presidential candidate this morning which was odd since I was on the show with him and didn’t notice anything like that… Of course, if you were listening, you know that Glenn actually threatened me, not Donald Trump, so I am in the odd situation of defending my boss for threatening my life.”

Ooops! U.S. Marshals Service Loses Track of at Least 2,000 Encrypted Two-Way Radios

Here’s an embarrassing revelation about the U.S. Marshals Service.

Devlin Barrett of the Wall Street Journal reports that the agency has lost track of at least 2,000 encrypted two-way radios and other communication devices valued at millions of dollars.

The Journal cites internal agency documents, and notes that “some within the agency view as a security risk for federal judges, endangered witnesses and others.”

Barrett writes:

The problem, which stretches back years, was laid out in detail to agency officials at least as early as 2011, when the Marshals were deploying new versions of the radios they use to securely communicate in the field. Agency leaders continued to have difficulty tracking their equipment even after they were warned about the problems by an internal technology office, according to the documents, which were obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests.
