In addition to hosting a popular podcast, Bongino is a frequent contributor to many of the most popular television programs on Fox News, including an appearance just this week on “Fox & Friends.”

Bongino served as a Secret Service agent for five years. Prior to that, he was a member of the New York City Police Department. This experience has put him in a unique position to speak out on a variety of issues related to government and law enforcement.
