20. Technically I do not believe the President has control over personnel at the Secret Service.

He might be able to request that someone be reassigned if he felt uncomfortable with them for some reason but I don't believe that he could fire someone - at least not directly. The Secret Service has a Director who reports to the Secretary of the Treasury, I believe.


So for Romney to say he would "clean house" indicates some ignorance I believe.
