President Trump labeled the 26-year-old man who jumped the White House fence Friday night ” a troubled person.” His troubles are likely just beginning. 26-year-old Jonathan Tran of Milpitas, CA has been charged with entering or remaining on restricted grounds while possessing a dangerous weapon after breaching the White House grounds. The charging information was provided by the US Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia.
The charge carries a potential maximum sentence of ten years in prison. Tran appeared in court on Saturday and is scheduled for another appearance Monday afternoon. Court documents indicate that he was discovered on White House property. In his backpack was a letter to President Trump in which he stated that he had information relevant to Russian hackers, a book written by President Trump and two cans of mace.
Tran told the uniformed Secret Service agent who apprehended him, “I am a friend of the president. I have an appointment.” While the President does keep long hours, he usually doesn’t entertain guests at midnight and never does so when they’re carrying mace. Additionally, he had a laptop with him.
Tran admitted to the arresting officer that he had jumped the fence. It seems President Trump has two fences he needs to work on the expedited construction of or taking corrective measures. President Trump took note of the odd behavior and statements of the intruder, declaring he’s a very troubled person. He had nothing but praise for the Secret Service who responded to the violation of the White House grounds.
President Trump was inside the White House at the time that the breach of security took place, which was just before midnight Friday Evening. No word has yet been released as to a possible motive or the national origin or citizenship and legal status of the would-be assailant. Especially in California, be “of” someplace just means that’s where you usually sleep and not much else.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later.
