Secret Service says Trump’s travel, large family have depleted funds to pay agents, report says

Secret Service says Trump’s travel, large family have depleted funds to pay agents, report says

What happens if the Secret Service can’t afford to pay its agents? Those agents might soon find out, according to a USA Today report. The director of the Secret Service, Randolph “Tex” Alles, told USA Today that more than 1,000 agents have already maxed out their salary and overtime allowances — allowances that were supposed to last all year. >> Secret Service investigating Missouri lawmaker’s post Alles said the service must protect 42 people, including 18 Trump family members, the report said. Under the Obama administration, that number was 31. Adding to Alles’ woes is a recent exodus of agents, thanks to travel and work demands, the report said. >> Read more trending news Read the full story here. Alles clarified his comments in a statement Monday. 'The Secret Service has the funding it needs to meet all current mission requirements for the remainder of the fiscal year and compensate employees for overtime within statutory pay caps,' the statement read. 'The Secret Service estimates that roughly 1,100 employees will work overtime hours in excess of statutory pay caps during calendar year 2017. Our agency experienced a similar situation in calendar year 2016 that resulted in legislation that allowed Secret Service employees to exceed statutory caps on pay.' >> What is Trump’s plan for Afghanistan? Alles added: 'This issue is not one that can be attributed to the current administration’s protection requirements alone, but rather has been an ongoing issue for nearly a decade due to an overall increase in operational tempo.'

USS John S. McCain collision: Damage being assessed, international search for missing sailors

USS John S. McCain collision: Damage being assessed, international search for missing sailors

The United States Navy said it will continue to investigate the collision involving the USS John S. McCain as the vessel’s damage is being assessed. As that happens, the U.S. 7th Fleet Public Affairs said in a news post that search efforts are continuing for the 10 soldiers who are still missing. Five sailors are injured. >> Read more trending news “Search and rescue efforts continue in coordination with local authorities,” it said in the post. “Royal Malaysian Navy ships KD Handalan and two coastal patrol craft Petir (12) and Pang Alang (39) as well as two Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency vessels are on scene today.  “Republic of Singapore Navy Fearless-class patrol ships Noble Pearl (PCG 54) and Noble Knight (PCG 56) joined search efforts as well.” Navy Adm. John Richardson has ordered a probe into the collision, The Associated Press reported. The fleet said the guided-missile destroyer “sustained significant hull damage that resulted in flooding to nearby compartments.”  “It is the second such incident in a very short period of time -- inside of three months -- and very similar as well,” Richardson said at the Pentagon Monday. “It is the last of a series of incidents in the Pacific fleet in particular and that gives great cause for concern that there is something out there we are not getting at.” An immediate explanation for the collision was not given. In the coming weeks, the Navy said it would take a one-day pause in operations to identify any steps that may need to be taken to ensure safety.

WATCH: President Trump’s speech on Afghanistan

Going against his own gut feeling that he should pull military forces out of Afghanistan, President Donald Trump on Monday night vowed to intensify American actions against terrorists based in the region, though he gave few details on how U.S. policy would change or on how many more soldiers would be sent in, as the American presence in Afghanistan seems likely to continue, almost 16 years since the September 11 attacks that led to a lengthy U.S. intervention.

“My original instinct was to pull out, and historically I like following my instincts, but all of my life I heard that decisions [More]
