The Secret Service pulled the trigger on dumping 2 agents after investigating the guy who jumped over a White House fence, and roamed the grounds for nearly 20 minutes.
The fired agents were involved the in the March 10 incident … where, as we reported, Jonathan Tran got close enough to jiggle a doorknob into the White House. The Secret Service says its investigation revealed Tran hopped a 5-foot high fence near the Treasury complex, and then hopped another 3-and-a-half foot high fence near the East Wing of the White House.
The investigation is ongoing, according to the Secret Service … which says it’s also added new posts for agents and enhanced technology to prevent a repeat.
