A D.C. police officer who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials and other dignitaries was moved to administrative duty Wednesday after he allegedly was overheard making threatening comments toward Michelle Obama, according to several police officials.

The police department’s Internal Affairs Division is investigating the alleged comments and notified the U.S. Secret Service Wednesday, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give details of the investigation.

The motorman allegedly made the comments Wednesday morning as several officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against President Obama. It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers took part in the conversation.

During that conversation, the officials said, the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady and then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use. An officer overheard the alleged threat and reported it to a police lieutenant at the Division, who immediately notified superiors.

    Prayers for God’s continued Divine dimension and protection and BLESSING for Mrs. Michelle, and the entire Obama family, as well, the Obama administration.  NOTHING but, the OMNIPOTENCE of God’s magnamous-unmeasure-able mercy, power and LOVE to this administration for trying to do, so much to HELP Veterans and the poorest of the poor AMERICANS.  No matter how the election unfolds, our nation and global futures are far more secure with OPTIMISM with the dazzling brilliance and humbleness of the Obama’s commitment to public service.
    PRAYERS, Prayers and more PRAYERS for our First Family, and our great beloved America !!! from a Kansas Navy Veteran.  We need Mrs. Michelle Obama and Mrs. Jill Biden to KEEP trying to HELP VETERANS, not trying to be Un-nice, or hurtful, but if ONLY enough of US will seal our hearts in the and through the POWER of PRAYERS: they’ll continue to do, just fine-
    For that matter let US prayer for PEACE and MERCY and non-violence for our entire nation, because there are so many unfortunate, hurt-ful things goingON.
    However, I never recall having have of anything so UN-Patriotic and Un-American as, THIS: God will hear our PRAYERS, which will over-ride / over-rule mean announcements, like THIS, “faith, the size of a MUSTARD SEED, can MOVE a MOUTAIN: and it can MOVE un-Unice, things like this report.  Thank you,
