BRZEZINSKI I want to ░░░░░░░░ with the head of ░░░░░░░░ Secret Service who faced ░░░░░░░░ lot of questions yesterday ░░░░░░░░ she answer them Is ░░░░░░░░ qualified to do her ░░░░░░░░ EARNEST Mika she s ░░░░░░░░ than qualified She is ░░░░░░░░ who has a very ░░░░░░░░ responsibility She s responsible ░░░░░░░░ leading the agency that ░░░░░░░░ the president and the ░░░░░░░░ House What you saw ░░░░░░░░ do yesterday was take ░░░░░░░░ for the shortcomings that ░░░░░░░░ evidence in the security ░░░░░░░░ at the White House ░░░░░░░░ there s someone who ░░░░░░░░ the fence on the ░░░░░░░░ lawn about 10 days ░░░░░░░░ She also took responsibility ░░░░░░░░ leading a review and ░░░░░░░░ the needing reforms BRZEZINSKI ░░░░░░░░ tell me about what ░░░░░░░░ drills has she run ░░░░░░░░ has she done to ░░░░░░░░ the culture in the ░░░░░░░░ Services And how can ░░░░░░░░ actually say everything you ░░░░░░░░ said given the three ░░░░░░░░ four cases that we ░░░░░░░░ been talking about this ░░░░░░░░ which show that people ░░░░░░░░ could harm the president ░░░░░░░░ gotten very very close ░░░░░░░░ either the White House ░░░░░░░░ it or the president ░░░░░░░░ EARNEST Well Mika in ░░░░░░░░ immediate aftermath of this ░░░░░░░░ 10 days ago there ░░░░░░░░ a number of reforms ░░░░░░░░ in place that very ░░░░░░░░ to strengthen the perimeter ░░░░░░░░ change some security protocols ░░░░░░░░ make sure that the ░░░░░░░░ was safe I m ░░░░░░░░ not going to be ░░░░░░░░ a position to detail ░░░░░░░░ the security protocols from ░░░░░░░░ Those security protocols work ░░░░░░░░ they re not widely ░░░░░░░░ by the public But ░░░░░░░░ were some reforms that ░░░░░░░░ implemented that very night ░░░░░░░░ importantly there s a ░░░░░░░░ review under way to ░░░░░░░░ what happened that night ░░░░░░░░ was the Secret Service ░░░░░░░░ response to that incident ░░░░░░░░ what changes need to ░░░░░░░░ made Whether it s ░░░░░░░░ changes Whether it is ░░░░░░░░ technology so that should ░░░░░░░░ deployed to protect the ░░░░░░░░ to protect the White ░░░░░░░░ Are there some protocols ░░░░░░░░ should be different Should ░░░░░░░░ protocol for responding to ░░░░░░░░ incidents be changed So ░░░░░░░░ is a pretty broad ░░░░░░░░ they re conducting The ░░░░░░░░ and the team at ░░░░░░░░ White House is obviously ░░░░░░░░ interested in reviewing the ░░░░░░░░ they recommend But this ░░░░░░░░ something the Secret Services ░░░░░░░░ very seriously and they ░░░░░░░░ to work on it ░░░░░░░░ Josh it s not ░░░░░░░░ you can say the ░░░░░░░░ is being investigated you ░░░░░░░░ that whatever is going ░░░░░░░░

president i can ░░░░░░░░ talk about that for ░░░░░░░░ reasons i think there ░░░░░░░░ some people potentially in ░░░░░░░░ Secret Service who are ░░░░░░░░ qualified for their job ░░░░░░░░ that fair to say ░░░░░░░░ re talking about men ░░░░░░░░ women in the Secret ░░░░░░░░ who wake up every ░░░░░░░░ prepared to put their ░░░░░░░░ on the line to ░░░░░░░░ the president and to ░░░░░░░░ the White House it ░░░░░░░░ s a very unique ░░░░░░░░ here at the White ░░░░░░░░ the billion you see ░░░░░░░░ you see behind me ░░░░░░░░ s not just the ░░░░░░░░ thousands of tourists will ░░░░░░░░ through that building that ░░░░░░░░ a value we protect ░░░░░░░░ this is not a ░░░░░░░░ of Josh Josh protect ░░░░░░░░ president and protecting the ░░░░░░░░ is about people doing ░░░░░░░░ jobs Josh are you ░░░░░░░░
