Is the oath the Secret Service take to protect the president more
important or solemn than their oath to serve the nation?

I mean if they are witnesses to criminal acts which are harmful to the safety and security of the nation, are they bound by their oath to the president to remain silent?

1. Look at what they did to Clinton!
Remember all the leaks the so-called "Secret Service" gave to the Press Whores and Ken Starr?

Now they are TOTALLY SILENT when Bush committs GREATER CRIMES!

2. If they knew
personally or witnessed something that is ILLEGAL (last I check in DC a blow job didn't qualify) then they are bound by law to report it. Would they? Who the hell knows...

3. So they are required to report illegal acts?
Well, maybe they will get really sloppy in their power and make some mistake (if they haven't already)!

4. Illegal?
They didn't report the twins. (They were busted by others.)

5. That's a good point, but I am talking in terms of illegal relative
to harmful to the safety and security of the nation.
