Secret Service Officer Tony Ornato Retires After 25 Years Amid Jan. 6 Investigation

Tony Ornato, the Secret Service supervisor assigned to former President Donald Trump during the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021, retired from the United States Secret Service on Monday.

Ornato was in good standing after 25 years of service, USSS spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News.

Cassidy Hutchinson, a former senior aide to White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, proved to the Jan. 6 committee in June that Ornato told her that Trump repeatedly demanded that the Secret Service bring him to Capitol Hill on Jan. 6.

He also testified that Ornato said the former president tried to grab the steering wheel of the presidential vehicle he was in and lunged at another agent.

Ornato and Trump’s top Secret Service agent who was in the car, Bobby Engel, privately tested before the Jan. 6 committee over the past year and never mentioned the steering wheel part, a source close to Ornato told Fox. News.

Ornato saw Hutchinson’s testimony and was surprised when she said he told her that Trump lunged for the steering wheel, a source said.

His retirement comes after the Director of the Secret Service James Murray announced his retirement last month to join Snap as the company’s chief security officer.
