Ed Henry ➠ Secret Service Is Not Supposed To Be Protecting Hillary From Reporters
You mean they’re not there to act as her protective force from questions?
Via Daily Caller:
Fox News’ Ed Henry responded on “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday to Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s controlling press operation after he was shut down trying to ask Clinton a question.
Henry complained about the Secret Service’s attempt to protect Clinton, adding that the Clinton press team is not being fair with the traveling media.
“We have this news conference. There’s long buildup to it. I’m standing three feet from Secretary Clinton and, one of her aides had sort of pulled me to the front, suggesting I was likely to get a question,” Henry explained to Martha MacCallum. “So I was waiting my turn. I wasn’t going to start shouting in her face. I’m three feet from her. She goes through her list and they have a careful list of who they’re going to call on, and then she just turns and walks away.”
“I was moving closer trying to get to her. A Secret Service person sort of told me to move back, so I was pretty annoyed by that because I didn’t think the Secret Service was supposed to be protecting candidates from reporters. Fine to protect them for security reasons. This was not a security thing,” Henry continued.
The Fox News chief White House correspondent went on to explain that Clinton’s press team wouldn’t allow him to ask a question after he interrupted the former secretary of state a few weeks prior at an event in Iowa. More
