REP. JASON CHAFFETZ (R), UTAH: I’ve got deep concerns that the president is not as safe as we want and need him to be. I’ve got questions about leadership, about protocol, and about the training at the Secret Service…….
CHAFFETZ: And to the doorway to the Green Room. And so the question is — there’s an audible alarm that’s supposed to be there. One of our whistleblowers has indicated that the audible alarm had been muted because the ushers thought it was disruptive and made noises.
And so it begs the question of leadership. Are we going to put security at the top, at the number one issue, or are there going to be some political considerations like making sure it doesn’t get too noisy on the first floor there?
