Bongino made progress as an agent and soon became enlisted to the presidential protective team during the tenure of Presidents George W. Bush, and through to the era of President Obama.
How Does Dan Bongino Make His Money?
Dan Bongino has built up an incredible resume in law enforcement as he did not just spend time as a Secret Service agent but also as a police officer with the New York Police Department (NYPD) from 1995 to 1999.

After Dan Bongino left active service in May 2011, he contested for a seat at the U.S. Senate, however, his bid was unsuccessful. He further received a lot of criticism from his former colleagues who felt he was using his knowledge and experience as a Secret Service Agent to gain cheap political points under the Republican platform.
Though his political ambition was smeared with some series of unsuccessful outings, he has remained a devoted Republican and a staunch pro-Trump supporter.
Asides all the above-listed means through which Bongino earns a living, he and his wife once ran about three businesses from their Maryland home. These businesses included the sales of martial arts wears/materials, website designing and security, and management consultancy.
