Judicial Watch this month obtained documents revealing that the Secret Service has repeatedly changed its story about whether it has records related to Hunter Brandon’s gun.
On October 23, 2018, Brandon’s crackhead son Hunter and daughter-in-law Hallie were involved in yet another brush with the law, this time the incident involved a gun.
Recall, Hunter Brandon began “dating” his dead brother’s widow Hallie in 2018, because that’s how the trashy Brandon family rolls.
In October of 2018, Hallie took Hunter Brandon’s handgun from his truck without his knowledge and threw it into a trash can behind Janssen’s Market, a Delaware grocery store – the gun went missing and no arrests were made.
In fact, the Secret Service inserted itself into the case and worked as the cleanup crew to protect the corrupt Brandon family.
Hunter Brandon went back to the grocery store to retrieve the gun after Hallie told him what she did, but the gun was no where to be found.
Delaware police began investigating and searching for the gun because it was left in a trash can across the street from a high school.
A few hours later, and still no gun, police let both Hallie and Hunter leave the scene with no arrests.
At the same time, Secret Service agents questioned the store owner where Hunter bought the gun and asked for the paperwork involving the sale – the gun store owner suspected the Secret Service agents were working to hide Hunter’s ownership of the firearm so he refused to hand over the paperwork.
The gun store owner handed Hunter’s paperwork over to the ATF instead.
A few days after the gun went missing, it was returned by a man who routinely rummages through trash cans looking for recyclables.
The Secret Service is now telling Judicial Watch that it has more than 100 records related to Hunter Brandon’s gun and will complete processing of the docs by January 9, 2023.
Judicial Watch reported:
Judicial Watch announced today that the United States Secret Service has repeatedly changed its position about whether it is in possession of records related to the investigation of Hunter Brandon’s gun, reportedly disposed of in a dumpster in Delaware. The Secret Service now says it now located over 100 records, totaling over 400 pages and will complete its initial processing of the records by January 9, 2023.
Judicial Watch is investigating whether and how the Secret Service intervened for Hunter Brandon in an incident involving a gun allegedly owned by him. In September, Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for records or communications about the reported purchase, possession, and disposal of a firearm owned by Hunter Brandon found in a Delaware dumpster in October 2018 (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:22-cv-02841)).
The Secret Service initially responded to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on April 2, 2021 and stated that it had located potentially responsive records and would process them in accordance with FOIA. Then, on October 13, 2022, the Secret Service said that the April 2021 response was sent in error and that it did not have any records responsive to the FOIA request.
But then, on November 10, 2022, the Secret Service informed the District Court that it has run supplemental searches and has located over 100 records, totaling over 400 pages, potentially responsive to Judicial Watch’s request.
The Secret Service also told the court that it would complete its initial processing of all potentially responsive records by January 9, 2023, and send records out for any necessary consultations with other Executive Branch entities by that date. All other non-exempt, responsive records are to be produced to Judicial Watch by January 9.
