One more White House tres­passer


Fed­eral at­tor­neys have iden­ti­fied the per­son who al­legedly jumped a White House fence re­cently and got so deep into the com­pound that he was seen hid­ing be­hind one of the man­sion’s col­umns be­fore be­ing ap­pre­hended. The sus­pect has been iden­ti­fied as Jonathan Tuan Tran, 26, of Mil­pi­tas, Cal­i­for­nia, ac­cord­ing the US At­tor­ney’s Of­fice and court doc­u­ments.

Tran pur­port­edly en­tered the White House grounds at about 11:38 p.m. with a back­pack and was ap­proach­ing the build­ing’s south por­tico res­i­dence en­trance when ap­pre­hended. Pres­i­dent Trump was in­side the White House at the time and the next day he ap­pre­ci­ated the Se­cret Ser­vice ef­forts. The Se­cret Ser­vice state­ment said the back­pack con­tained no haz­ardous ma­te­ri­als and that the uniden­ti­fied sus­pect had no ‘pre­vi­ous his­tory’ with the agency.
