Secret Service to Protect Trump, Carson as Threats Grow

By Todd Beamon for Newsmax

The Secret Service will give agent protection to Ben Carson and Donald Trump while heavily upgrading Hillary Clinton's existing detail, a Washington source close to the agency’s plans confirmed to Newsmax.

The deployment of agents around Republican candidates Trump and Carson is set to begin as early as next week. Approximately two dozen agents will be assigned to each candidate.

Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, has had Secret Service protection since leaving the White House as first lady in 2001, but her detail will be heavily upgraded by the agency’s move.

The agency's decision was primarily triggered by a significant number of threats to Carson, including death threats and terrorist chatter, the source said.

The threats to the retired pediatric neurosurgeon have been "off the charts," the source said. Polls show Carson either tied with Trump for front-runner status or in second place.

Armstrong Williams, Carson's business manager, told Newsmax he could neither "confirm nor deny" the Secret Service protection. “We don’t comment on security matters involving Dr. Carson,” he said.

But Newsmax has learned that the Secret Service and other federal agencies, including the FBI,  became increasingly alarmed in recent weeks as their own monitoring activities indicated that Carson faced serious danger.
