Laptop With "Highly Sensitive" Trump Data, Clinton Email Probe Info Stolen From Secret Service Agent

Tyler Durden's picture

Even when Hillary Clinton is no longer running for president, laptop "accidents" continue to follow her.

As regular readers will recall, shortly before the election, the FBI revealed that a laptop containing some of Hillary Clinton's emails mysteriously disappeared in transit, while several months later, another laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner just as mysteriously was found to contain emails between his then-wife Huma Abedin and her boss, Hillary. The laptop in question prompted the FBI to reopen its probe into Hillary Clinton's emails just days before the presidential election.

Now, according to the New York Daily News which cites police sources, a laptop computer containing information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation, as well as floor plans for Trump Tower and other national security information, was stolen from a Secret Service agent's vehicle in Brooklyn.

The secret service agent reported the laptop contained floor plans for Trump Tower, evacuation protocols and information regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server. The agent also told investigators that while nothing about the White House or foreign leaders is stored on the laptop, the information on the computer "could compromise national security." The thief also took "sensitive" documents and the agent's access keycard, though the level of the agent's access wasn't immediately clear.

The laptop was stolen on Thursday morning and authorities have been "frantically" searching for it ever since. 

Some items stolen along with the laptop — including coins and a black bag with the Secret Service insignia on it — were later recovered.

 

But the laptop, along with other documents described as "sensitive," were still being sought.

According to Politico, also stolen were a set of security perimeter pins, a second, personal laptop, and other items, federal and New York City law enforcement sources said. Two of the source said that some items stolen from the vehicle — including a set of lapel pins that allow agents entry into security perimeters around dignitaries protected by the Secret Service — had been recovered in the vicinity soon after the break-in.

Describing the theft, the NYDN reports that the thief stepped out of a car, possibly an Uber, on a street in Bath Beach and stole the laptop from the agent's vehicle, which was parked in the driveway of her home. He was then seen on video walking away from the scene with a backpack.

 NYPD cops were assisting in the investigation but had scant information on what’s on the laptop, sources said.

"The Secret Service is very heavily involved and, citing national security, there's very little we have on our side," a police source said. "It's a very big deal.”

"There's data on there that's highly sensitive,” the police source added. “They're scrambling like mad.”

The Secret Service laptop, which contained information about the layout and evacuation routes in Trump Tower, was still missing as of Friday afternoon, according to multiple sources familiar with the investigation.

Plausible deniability for a future leak.

It was "stolen".

 

Like Fort Knox misplaced gold.

 

 

More like he was compensated for leaving it in the car.... Assassination attempt before Q2 2018. When is the next big Jew holiday?

I believe this fits well within the definition of the term: "ShitShow".  Pure humor here.  The members of our "elite" take themselves so seriously...  and give us this.  Yep.  ShitShow.

I understand the floor plan and evac plan - by why would a SS agent have email investigation info on his/her laptop?  Was she counterfeiting too?

Maybe this was the SENSITIVE INFORMATION they had on that laptop and some snowflake got triggered:

So the very smart and savvy Secret Service get entrusted with a super important laptop and it gets left all by itself in a car where someone just happened to know it was there unguarded and it got stolen.

That was a setup if ever there was one.

 Not even a hit.

1) leave laptop in car

2) exit car 

 3) come back after 30 minutes and pretend to be shocked that laptop is gone and report to police like it was totally unexpected.

4) go to prearranged location and pick up bag of cash

Good one. Classic case of the long arm of government reaching where it shouldn't.

Everyone's fired. Including the Boss himself. Trump, yes.

jeff montanye's picture

this is another reason not to drop private security mr. president. some of the secret service may not have your best interests at heart, like at least part of the cia.

Post-Truth Society's picture

Of course, Zero Hedge doesn't want you to hear the real story: that Trump just ordered two Secret Service agents to take pictures of his own grandson to sell to his Pizzagate pals.

"It happened when the two agents drove him from Westchester County and he fell asleep in the car. The source says when the boy awoke, he "freaked out" and told his mom Vanessa Trump.

The Secret Service has commented saying, they are aware of the matter and investigating it. Stressing the importance to not jump to conclusions."

Well the good news in all of this is that nobody with decent sense wants Hillary on the top of their lap.

This story rhymes with the whitehouse fence jumper. Its a warning to Trump, just like they did with Obama fence jumpers.

What a horrible "MISTAKE"...

Mr. Bones's picture

It shouldn't even matter.

NIST 800 - 53 & 800-171 prescribe full disk encryption, which is freely available to basically everyone.  As such unless the attacker was a state actor or knew the pass key there no reason to believe the laptop wasnt pawned or sold on Amazon, wiped, like with a cloth or something.

I mean, it would just be silly to audit companies for compliance if the secret service isn't using decade old best practice.  Right?

Her vehicle was not a car. It was a motorcycle according to the Druge story. A 2015 Pujib. Now try to convince yourself that Marie, th SS agent is a victim.

Is there noone in Washington D.C. who is not on the take?

edotabin's picture

Apparently it is the decent citizens of this country that are on the take. We have to "take" and put up with the endless stream of bullshit. It is a shitshow with no equal or end. 

A_V's picture

Exactly. I had several friends who worked for the IRS, who did audits on huge international companies...Yada yada...they could never EVER leave their computers anywhere unless it was in their office, or their home. They were told to NEVER leave it in a car, even for a few minutes. They were told if their computer was ever stolen...it bette be stolen from their office, or their home.

No excuse a for theft from a CAR!

He should have kept his windows rolled up ...after all, it's NYC.

Besides, who in their right mind would keep a laptop in their car, esp if it had highly sensitive info?

 

New_Meat's picture

ppd don't do no stinkin' investigations, nor the next circle outside of the trenchcoat crowd.

Maybe this is an excuse for The Donald to fire the lot of them.  It isn't the Cartegena whores and cocaine (allthough the agents do the pee in the bottle thing pretty frequently)--it is the stupidity of getting caught.  So they should be fired for being inept.  Bring back the short sleeved shirts and the bulging muscles.

Interesting the Politico article has absolutely no mention of the Hillary emails.

floor plans and standard evacuation plans would not be hard to find, not sure of significance

Mass Psychosis.

 

I was told by someone I know that his wife had dressed up their daughter and herself in those pussy hats and marched in the streets.

I responded by saying to him that any man that would put a dick hat on his and his son's heads and march him through the streets is insane; and would wonder if the child might be endangered and in need of removal from the home.  But dicks and pussys are different things and wearing one on your head in public means something quite different from the other.   I think...   Maybe...

Wide-eyed silence.

Or, how about the possibility that this was a physical world phishing operation with GPS tracking and voice recording enabled, and loaded with false info to see where it ends up?

This has already been shown as a tactic by trump with the "Mrs. President" character...

I would think zhers would be more adept at understanding possible tactics in warfare...

Flynn "resigned" after he got the updated info from nsa that he needed...now he is free to conduct guerilla operations like this without the press even knowing...

Sun Tzu, grasshopper, Sun Tzu...

Where's me jumper's picture

That was my initial reaction. They can't possibly be that stupid and incompetent... Then again,... Feels like it was set up specifically to be reported to damage the reputation of the Secret Service.

BarkingCat's picture

Oh yes they they can. 

I travel with a laptop that has a lot of sensitive data and am paranoid as hell about it. 

Some people are not.

 

I would hope that this laptop's hard drive is encrypted.  Mine are and I am still paranoid. 

pliny the longer's picture

we simply cannot overestimate the raw naked stupidity of some of these people.  few years back, hung around a SS agent who was a dad of a kid group my son was also involved in.  nice guy.  really.    

no joke, he got transfered to DC.  was during prezzy purple drank admin, i used to kid him he was going to be on chewie detail, he would look me straight in the eyes and not smile . . . true story 

techpriest's picture

Still, why would an SS agent have information about Hillary's emails on his laptop? Isn't that in the purview of another agency?
