Trump is removing US Secret Service director

United States Secret Service director Randolph "Tex" Alles is being removed from his position, multiple administration officials tell CNN.

President Donald Trump instructed his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, to fire Alles. Alles remains in his position as of now but has been asked to leave.
The USSS director was told two weeks ago there would be a transition in leadership and he was asked to stay on until there was a replacement, according to a source close to the director.
Secret Service officials have been caught by surprise with the news and are only finding out through CNN, according to the source.

Word is Alles was asked to leave, and has either dithered or outright refused, prompting him to be removed today.

When the Chinese spy thing at Mar-a-Lago, the Secret Service put out a statement basically blaming the Trump Org.

I knew then that heads would probably roll.

Of course, it's not good to speak ill of your boss' company, but if your boss is the president, he shouldn't have a fucking company.

You guys LOVED czars under Obama...

More selective outrage. Nothing more.

Nothing to see here but crybabies crying for what they cheered for last week.

The Secret Service director reports directly to the Secretary of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen, who resigned on Sunday amid growing pressure from the President. The director oversees the Secret Service's work on both protection and investigations. "There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation's second-largest national security agency," one senior administration official says.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel's John Mitnick are expected to be gone soon, and the White House is eyeing others to be removed.

The President in recent weeks empowered Stephen Miller to lead the administration's border policies"and he's executing his plan" with what amounts to a wholesale decapitation or the Department of Homeland Security leadership, the official says.

People predicted that he would become even more unhinged after all the "grown-ups" left.

Seems they were right.
