The Washington Post's April 23, 2022 Meadows was warned of violence ahead of Jan. 6, new court filings show includes:
One of Meadows’s top aides, Cassidy Hutchinson, told congressional investigators that she recalled Anthony Ornato, a senior Secret Service official who also held the role of a political adviser at the White House, “coming in and saying that we had intel reports saying that there could potentially be violence on the 6th. And Mr. Meadows said: All right. Let’s talk about it.”
Somehow "a senior Secret Service official who also held the role of a political adviser" seems strange to me; for example Wikipedia's United States Secret Service; Primary missions lists Protective and Investigative missions (and there are several things they investigate besides protective issues) but nothing about providing political advice.
So I'd like to ask:
Question: Is it unusual for a US Secret Service official to serve as "a political adviser at the White House" as the Washington Post article seems to suggest?
