The Secret Service has launched an investigation into the home intrusion who entered National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s home during the night around two weeks ago.
According to a report from the Washington Post, the unidentified man entered Sullivan’s home at around 3 a.m. in late April, where Sullivan confronted him. He then proceeded to tell the man to leave his house. The report further notes that there were no signs of forced entry and that the Secret Service agents who are part of Sullivan’s 24/7 detail had not noticed the man entered the home in D.C.
After Sullivan confronted the man and made him leave, he proceeded to inform the agents of what had occurred. Officials told the Post that the man appeared to be intoxicated and uncertain about where he was. They further added that currently, no evidence suggests that the man had been aware of who Sullivan was or that he was trying to harm him.
An official investigation has now been launched, with Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi pointing out that they were looking into every aspect of the matter to determine whether there was “any deviation from our protective protocols” adding that if there were, the personnel responsible would be held accountable.
Sullivan’s home invasion follows last year’s high-profile attack by a man who entered former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) home in San Francisco and proceeded to attack her husband with a knife. Pelosi is not protected by the Secret Service but rather by the Capitol Police.
