Intruder Arrested After Breaching White House Grounds: Secret Service

When approached by a Secret Service officer on the south grounds about 11:38 p.m. Friday and asked whether he had a pass authorising him to be in the restricted area, Tran replied, "No, I am a friend of the president".

Tran was charged late Saturday in a District of Columbia federal court with "entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a unsafe weapon". I have an appointment, ' the complaint states.

This article has been updated to include President Trump's comments. Court records revealed that along with two cans of Mace, he had a letter for Trump that mentioned Russian hackers.

Tran will appear in DC court for a second time on Monday, and he has now been pictured in a courtroom sketch.

President Trump on Saturday commended the Secret Service for its "fantastic job".

Authorities said the person was carrying a backpack that was searched. 'It was very sad'. "And I'll tell ya - I love the Secret Service, I love the men and women there, the rank-and-file agents are the best people I've ever met - but the management is an absolute disaster".

'Nothing of concern to security operations was found, ' the Secret Service said.

The most serious of the recent security incidents at the White House occurred in September 2014, when an Army veteran carrying a knife climbed the fence and pushed his way inside the building before he was stopped.

"If you think the Secret Service right now under the current security plan is prepared for a multiple-man tactical assault on the White House, you're out of your mind", Bongino reiterated.
