Stolen a Secret Service laptop with private Trump and Hillary info on it

Uh oh, looks like President Donald Trump might have another thing to add to his growing list of cybersecurity worries.

On Thursday, a laptop computer containing private information was stolen from a Secret Service agent’s vehicle in New York, according to the law enforcement agency.

ABC News reported the computer contains Trump Tower floor plans, details about Hillary Clinton’s email investigation and other national security information.

Wonderful. Just what America needs right now.

On Friday, the Secret Service released the following statement confirming the theft and stating the laptop is super secure.

“The U.S. Secret Service can confirm that an employee was the victim of a criminal act in which our Agency issued laptop computer was stolen,” the agency said. “Secret Service issued laptops contain multiple layers of security including full disk encryption and are not permitted to contain classified information.”

ABC News noted the laptop can be wiped remotely if needed and there is video footage of the thief.

Kenneth Vogel, chief investigative reporter at Politico, tweeted that according to a source communication equipment was stolen as well and Secret Service isn’t taking it too well.

I mean, that’s understandable. We can bet the president isn’t too relaxed about it either.

Trump has yet to tweet about the incident, insult the Secret Service or accuse “failing” Snoop Dogg of taking the laptop. But, we’re waiting.
