Does a former ambassador get Secret Service protection?  I'm guessing not, since the neighbors seem to think it unusual.

Mustache wax?

If there was a credible threat to his life the Biden administration could probably provide a detail.

I mean, the other option is that he is being investigated for counterfeiting but as much as I think he's a douche I find that highly unlikely

Iran no doubt holds him largely responsible for the whack on Soleimani...

He wasn't NSA anymore when it happened but he's had a hard-on for Iran since he was a toddler.

Hopefully a bag full of bone saws for him.

They need the Russia plans.  Bolton has detailed plans for attacking every country with whichbhe ever wanted to go to war.  Which is all of them.  Every country.

/I kid
//he has a soft spot for Luxembourg
// no real "attacks" for them, just a light droning

They're not going to say a word.

Trumpy found out he was going to testify against him and the SS intercepted comms that they were going to try to whack Bolton.

Not really.

I can't for the life of me figure out why they're conspicuous and why they'd be removing anything from the residence if it was a protection thing.

Bolton is an odd pick for any of the stuff going on.

But, f*ck Warwalrus regardless.

I'd suspect the marked vehicles are more for the other duties - from the Secret Service's website for the "stuff we do that isn't catching bullets for politicos" section:

The Secret Service has primary jurisdiction to investigate threats against Secret Service protectees as well as financial crimes, which include counterfeiting of U.S. currency or other U.S. Government obligations; forgery or theft of U.S. Treasury checks, bonds or other securities; credit card fraud; telecommunications fraud; computer fraud, identify fraud and certain other crimes affecting federally insured financial institutions.

Nah. It's been squashed.  They put out a deathamtion. You ain't seen it.

That's like this building near me that hosts Alcoholic Anonymous meetings.

I know that because they put "ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS" in giant letters on the window.

This seems to have high potential to be 1. easily explained to anyone whose business it is to know and 2. none of your business to know.

The elevated security presence has drawn the attention of Bolton's neighbors posting on Next Door

Ah. There you go. It's like a Gladys Kravitz hive mind.

Better question: What does the Secret Service investigate outside of threats to their protected charges and counterfeiting? Is there stuff they could be investigating him for?

Probably keeping him away from a camera so he doesn't start a land war in Eastern Europe.

I don't even think the god Aries was as much of a warmonger like this guy is.

Their mission has expanded quite a bit beyond just counterfeiting. "Financial investigations include counterfeit U.S. currency, bank and financial institution fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, illicit financing operations, and major conspiracies." -Wiki

Lots of things in that list I could see Bolton (or his PAC) getting up to.

Iran is always threatening payback for Trump killing General Soleimani. But Bolton has left by the time of Soleimani's assassination.

Huh.  I did not know that.

Major financial crimes still seem way out of his wheelhouse though - he was one of the few Trump administration people who was a career public servant (whatever you think of his views) and not a shameless grifter.  I guess he could have incidental evidence of something though...

If this mustachioed prick ends up being the guy who saves American Democracy, I'm going to send a strongly worded letter to the writers of this season.
