Secret Service nabs White House intruder

The Secret Service declined to answer questions about how the man penetrated so deep onto the White House grounds, citing an ongoing investigation.

The US Secret Service said the breach happened shortly before midnight on Friday. At a Saturday lunch, the president thanked the Secret Service. "I just saw him a couple days ago, he was just driving in his vehicle", John Prasad said. When an agent questioned the intruder, he said he was Trump's friend and had an appointment.

Brian said his brother had been "living in his auto and eating junk food" and additionally said he had been "a very good brother to me". Secret service officers say he was carrying a backpack with a letter inside for the president.

Officers searched the north and south grounds of the White House complex and found nothing.

Authorities said the person was carrying a backpack that was searched.

Federal attorneys on Saturday identified the person who allegedly jumped a White House fence Friday night and got so deep into the compound that he was seen hiding behind one the mansion's column before being apprehended. He was apprised of the situation, White House spokesman Sean Spicer told journalists Saturday.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was briefed on the incident, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Earlier this year, a plan proposed by the Secret Service and National Park Service to build a taller, stronger fence with added features to detect and deter climbers won final approval.
