RFK, Jr. Trespasser Included in Secret Service Risk Assessment Months Before DHS Denied Protection
October 27, 2023
The person arrested for trespassing on Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s property twice this week was listed in a Secret Service risk assessment as part of the candidate's request for protection in June, Fox News Digital has learned.
Jonathan Macht was arrested Wednesday morning for trespassing on Kennedy's property. Police transported Macht from Kennedy's property, but he returned later in the day after he was released from custody and again attempted to enter the property. He was re-arrested.
Kennedy requested Secret Service protection twice, but has been rejected by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) despite the Secret Service determining in June that he was at elevated "risk for adverse attention."
"The thing I worry most about is the politicization of our law enforcement agencies," Kennedy said. "It is disturbing — the apparent weaponization of the Secret Service while Biden provides protection to his family members and political allies."
"And then he denies it to political rivals," Kennedy said of Biden. "It is not good optics for the world of exemplary democracy."
