The Secret Service is an arm of the Treasury Department.
The Secret Service is in charge of of the security of the President and Vice-President.
The Secretary of the Treasury is 5th in line to the Presidency. (It goes VP, Speaker of the House, President pro tem of the Senate, Secretary of State, then Treasury.) Except when the Secretary of State is ineligible, as has happened twice in the last 35 years (Kissinger and Albright); then he's 4th.
I'd check out that Secretary of the Treasury pretty closely. Especially if it's Secretary of the Treasury Larry King!
