On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sounded off on the lapses of the Secret Service’s protection of the White House on the day following a hearing that included testimony from Julia Pierson, the head of that agency, before the House Oversight Committee.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that my confidence and my trust in this director, Ms. Pierson, has eroded. And I do not feel comfortable with her in that position,” Cumming, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said.
Reportedly, Cummings had called for Pierson’s outright resignation on Roland Martin’s News One Now radio show earlier.
