WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Secret Service Director Julia Pierson resigned Wednesday, a day after bitingly critical questioning by Congress about a White House security breach. There had been increasing calls for her departure during the day.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said she offered her resignation and he accepted it.
Pierson will be replaced by Joseph Clancy, a former special agent in charge of the president's protective detail who retired in 2011. Pierson has been with the agency for 30 years.
She was widely criticized during and after her testimony Tuesday.
