On Tuesday, two U.S. officials confirmed that the U.S. Secret Service is currently investigating a breach at the residence of Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser to President Joe Biden.

The officials refrained from disclosing specific information regarding the investigation or the nature of the intrusion.

At the time of reporting, the Secret Service had not responded to a comment request, Politico reported.

The Washington Post initially broke the news about the investigation, stating that an individual entered Sullivan’s residence in the West End neighborhood of Washington, D.C., at approximately 3 a.m. last month.

According to sources briefed on the incident, as cited by The Post, Sullivan confronted the intruder, who seemed to be under the influence of alcohol, and instructed him to leave.

There were no signs of forced entry, and no evidence suggested that the intruder was acquainted with Sullivan or intended to cause harm. The Post’s sources chose to remain anonymous.

Reportedly, Secret Service agents were stationed outside Sullivan’s house; however, the intruder managed to enter without detection and departed before the agents became aware of his presence.

The Secret Service expressed concern over the breach when speaking with The Post.
