U.S. Secret Service Chief Takes Silicon Valley Job. What Could Go Wrong? by Robert Bridge

With civil liberties now on the line, the revolving door that exists between the U.S. intelligence and private sector needs to be closed down.
Secret Service Director James Murray has resigned from his White House security detail for a cushy security job at Snap, the parent company of Snapchat. With civil liberties now on the line, this revolving door that exists between the U.S. intelligence and private sector needs to be closed down
In the course of his 27-year security gig in Washington, DC, James Murray ran a tight ship, keeping trespassers off the White House lawn while for the last three years providing security to both Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump. Not a bad resume and Snapchat, the mobile messaging application used to share photos, videos, text, and drawings, seems to agree. Last week, Murray accepted the position as head of security at the social media company. He is scheduled to begin his duties in August.
What’s wrong with this picture? First, government officials moving into the private sector via the well-known ‘revolving door’ following retirement is rife with risk and potential misconduct. In the course of their careers, public servants may be tempted to give special consideration to their future employers in order to win a six-figure job later in the private sector.
