The United States Secret Service was originally created to combat counterfeiting of United States paper currency, but why the name Secret Service? I could not find a satisfactory answer to the question why is the Secret Service so named?
If you believe as I and my Students that there should be no secrets in law and government, you will want to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about my $50 trial legal education offer.
