Loudmouth comedian Kathy Griffin had participated in a disgusting photoshoot that saw her carrying the severed head of President Donald Trump. Now, this has come back to bite her in a big way.
Breitbart reported that the Secret Service has confirmed that it has launched an investigation into “the circumstances surrounding the photo shoot.”
“On it! @SecretService has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting & social media to evaluate threats,” the agency tweeted on Tuesday, clearly referring to Griffin’s photo.
“Threats made against @SecretService protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations. #ProtectionNeverRests,” the Secret Service later added.
“The U.S. Secret Service has a critical mission. It is always unfortunate when people make statements that could be perceived as threats,” the statement read. “We don’t have the luxury of knowing a person’s intent. Each alleged or perceived threat has to be investigated thoroughly which taxes Secret Service manpower and resources that could be utilized elsewhere.”
