The history of the United States is, typically, told in the accomplishments of the iconic greats: George Washington. Abraham Lincoln. Martin Luther King.

For twelve years Dan Bongino‘s job was to protect the nation’s leaders, including two presidents. He was a Secret Service agent, privy to what he calls “the bubble,” the insular world occupied by the leaders, hangers-on, and wannabes at the very top of the federal government.
