Why would a successful, twelve-year Secret Service agent resign his position in the prime of his career to run for political office against all the odds?

Take the journey with Dan Bongino from the tough streets of New York City where he was raised, and later patrolled as a member of the NYPD, to the White House as a member of the elite Presidential Protective Division, through his ultimate decision to resign from the Secret Service in the prime of his career to run for the United States Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic machine. Follow his experiences inside the Washington DC “Bubble” and uncover why a government that includes the incredibly dedicated people he encountered while within it continues to make tragic mistakes.
