WASHINGTON — The Secret Service is boosting security outside the White House following an embarrassing security breach in which an intruder with a knife scaled the White House fence, dashed across the lawn and made it all the way inside before agents managed to stop him.
Increased surveillance and more officer patrols are among the measures that Secret Service Director Julia Pierson has ordered, as the elite agency strives to ensure such an incident can’t happen again. Pierson has also launched a full investigation into what went wrong.
