Secret Service agents are reportedly being investigated for a selfie with Trump's grandson


Two Secret Service agents assigned to protect President Trump's grandson, Donald Trump III, are now facing investigation after taking a selfie with him as he slept, Mother Jones reports.

The agents are not facing criminal charges, but are being investigated for abandoning their post.

Mother Jones' anonymous source said the agents were driving Trump III to Manhattan. He was asleep in the car as the agents started taking selfies. When he woke up, he "freaked out."

Trump III told his mother Vanessa, who told his father, Donald Trump Jr. The incident quickly escalated to the top of Secret Service leadership.

The Secret Service confirmed an investigation was underway in a statement.

"The Secret Service would caution individuals to not jump to conclusions that may grossly mischaracterize the matter," the statement concluded.

The Secret Service has been plagued by scandals in recent months, including a $24 million discrimination lawsuit and an agent who said she wouldn't protect Trump.

Last Friday, Jonathan Tran jumped the White House fence while Trump was in the building. Tran was swiftly arrested, and Trump later called him "troubled" while praising the Secret Service response.
