There was that little issue of an apparently unstable man jumping the White House fence and making it deep into the building before an off-duty agent tackled him.

And there was that little situation where a private security guard carrying a gun was allowed in the same elevator as President Obama.

And more.

So just what’s happening with the venerable Secret Service, which is tasked with protecting the president and his family?

Former Secret Service agent and New York Times bestselling author Dan Bongino will be explaining what he sees, as one of the featured guests on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace at 10 a.m. on the Fox News Channel.

Bongino, the author of “Life Inside the Bubble,” will appear with Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., to discuss the investigation into the embattled Secret Service.

Multiples scandals currently embroil the Secret Service in intense scrutiny, and Bongino will discuss with Wallace and Ayotte his time guarding Presidents Bush and Obama as part of the Presidential Protective Division.

Just this week Joe Clancy was appointed interim chief of the agency following the resignation of Julie Pierson.

She dropped out amid the recent scandals for the agency that drew raised eyebrows from those unfamiliar with security procedures and outrage from Congress, whose members said they wanted a much more vigorous and aggressive attitude from the agency.

Fox News reported Pierson’s departure came just days after the Sept. 19 incident where a man jumped a fence and darted past “several layers of security” to enter the White House.

It had been only days earlier, the report said, “a security contractor armed with a gun who had previously been arrested for assault rode on an elevator with Obama and his security detail at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, violating Secret Service protocol.”

The report said lawmakers also were aghast about a four-day delay in 2011 before the Secret Service realized a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House.

Published by WND Books, Bongino’s “Life Inside the Bubble” tells the story of his experiences inside the Washington, D.C., “Bubble” and helps the reader uncover why a government, filled with some of the incredibly dedicated people he encountered while within it, continues to make tragic mistakes.

Bongino began his career in law enforcement with the NYPD in 1995. He joined the ranks of the Secret Service in 1999 as a special agent where he was assigned to investigate financial crimes. In 2006, Bongino entered into duty with the elite Presidential Protective Division in the administration of President George W. Bush. He remained on protective duty during the change in administration to Obama. He resigned from the Secret Service in 2011 to run for a senate seat in Maryland.

Now he is speaking out and holding nothing back.

“Life Inside the Bubble” is one of more than a dozen New York Times bestsellers published and marketed by WND Books in a decade of publishing more than 100 titles. Those numbers reflect the highest percentage of New York Times bestsellers of any publisher in the world – more than 10 percent.

“It’s not even a close call,” said Farah. “The biggest publishers in America would be happy with a 1 percent ratio and seldom achieve it. I don’t believe any other publisher has achieved a ratio of even 5 percent. Our secret is the tender loving care we give each release at WND Books. We treat each title like it’s one of our babies. We nurture it. We give it our undivided attention. We love it through each process from conception, delivery and infancy and adulthood and we never give up on them.”

Founded in 2002 by WND’s Joseph and Elizabeth Farah, WND Books made an immediate impact with its first No. 1 New York Times bestseller, Michael Savage’s “The Savage Nation.” Several more bestsellers from the upstart rocked the publishing world. Within two years of its launch, every major U.S. publisher had created imprints to compete head-to-head with WND Books in its niche for edgy, controversial current events titles. WND Books prides itself on providing to the reading public important, timely and entertaining books that impact the public debate.
