TAKE 2 RADIO'S SPECIAL HOST JIM MALLIARD SPEAKS WITH JOHN CARMAN - WHISTLEBLOWER ABOUT HIS TIME AS A SECRET SERVICE AGENT ON SATURDAY, JULY 15TH AT 7PM EASTERN
JOHN CARMAN: “To be silent is giving consent…I will do neither.”
On this episode of The Mallliard Report Jim welcomes a guest that has a list of accomplishments and accolades that would impress even the most ambitious of people. A long term veteran of law enforcement and seeing a career that has spanned across several decades, John Carman has served as a member of The Secret Service (protecting the President, First Family, and many other prominent heads of state), worked as a San Diego Police officer, US Mint Police (protecting gold bullion at the US Federal Depository in San Francisco), and as an agent for the US Customs and Border Patrol. While John served many honorable years and was recognized for his outstanding service, this is not the reason as to why he is garnering negative attention from unwanted sources. John is a whistleblower. A whistleblower in a field where a lot of money is moved and made.
During his tenure as a customs agent, John received many commendations for his outstanding work. He was responsible for some of the biggest smuggling busts; drugs, money, people, you name it. As with any agent worth his salt, John paid attention to the goings on around him. This is where he began to notice that some things were not on the up and up. Other agents would downplay the amount of narcotics found on a bust to lessen a sentence. Superiors would take bribes and kickbacks in order to let some dealings slide under the radar. The various Mexican cartels would “adopt” other agents as a sort of “in” in order to have things go favorably for them.
