A source within the NYPD has reported that an armed 62 year old man tried to sneak in to the Trump Tower late Tuesday night. Interestingly the suspect who was found with a semi-automatic handgun fitted with a silencer has been identified as Barry Lee Bush, a former Newark NJ FBI agent who has been dead since 2007.
A Secret Service agent discovered Bush after he had circumvented a security partition on the bottom floor of the Trump Tower. Questioned by Secret Service at the scene, Bush who initially identified himself as Barry Franklyn, remained silent offering no explanation for why he broke security at the Trump Tower.
According to the NYPD source, Bush was arrested for trespassing and for illegally carrying a pistol fitted with an illegal silencer. During his booking at the NYPD Jail, Bush’s fingerprints were submitted to the National Crime Information Center, which immediately reported Bush’s true identity.
“I wasn’t sure if our system had malfunctioned, so I rescanned his fingerprints to confirm that our system was working correctly. There was no system error. The man we have in custody was reported deceased in 2007 after being shot in an attempted bank robbery, “one source speaking on anonymity said.
The New York Times reported on April 6, 2007 that Barry Bush, a veteran F.B.I. agent on a bank-robbery detail was fatally wounded apparently when another agent’s weapon accidentally discharged during a confrontation with three gunmen outside a bank in a quiet town in central New Jersey.
Speaking about the weapon found on Bush, the NYPD source stated, “We don’t find hardware like this on the streets–that Glock was never stamped at the factory [serial number]—those pieces are reserved for people with a lot higher pay grades than me.”
According to a spokesman at the Newark FBI field office, Bush was killed in the line of duty in April of 2007. Coincidentally, five minutes after we got off the phone with him, a page honoring FBI agents who were killed in the line of duty, went down on the FBI’s website.
It is not clear what Bush’s intentions were for sneaking around security to presumably access the service elevators at the Trump Tower, however it does not take much imagination as to why Bush was carrying a silenced pistol at the time of his arrest.
Trump is in Florida today for rallies in Daytona Beach and Jacksonville. The Trump organization has informed us that he was not at the Trump Tower yesterday evening and did not have any information about the incident, other than an armed man had been arrested at his building and that it was not clear about what Bush’s intentions were.
Mr. Trump seemed to take the news that an armed dead person was found at his NY building, with a grain of salt. Fortunately for his family and supporters, Mr. Trump is still around to try to sort out this interesting incident.
We have had two different opposing issues come up with this particular article. One was written by Snopes.com. I had a lot of respect for Snopes.com at one time. The husband and wife who published that blog published it for the same reason we do–to tell people what the mainstream media for some reason refuses to print. Unfortunately, the people at Snopes became greedy and allowed their original intentions to become skewed, spewing whatever garbage they think will draw people to their paid advertising.
This site does not and will never feature paid advertising. [please see our FAQ’s page] We are not in this to make money. This is my wife and my way of sharing whatever information we can with people who would like to know the truth that the mainstream media chooses not to post for their own reasons that in our opinion, are greed related.
Another issue came up with someone posing to be a security guard at Trump tower informing us that this incident did not happen. We are very fortunate at this blog to receive information from the Trump organization, often from Mr. Trump himself. Mr. Trump is aware of this article. From what I understand, he reads everything we post. He has never been bashful about letting us know if we are off on anything. If in fact this story was not true, Mr. Trump would of let us know days ago that it was inaccurate. Going on that basis, we stand by this story.
