Martin Kirby was the former Vice President of the United States under the administration of President Allan Trumbull until his impeachment in Angel Has Fallen.


Before Angel Has FallenEdit

When Benjamin Asher's administration ended and Allan Trumbull's administration started, Martin Kirby was elected as Vice President. However, tensions between the United States and Russia were high and at some point in time, Kirby believed that private military companies were needed and that the United States had to show itself as a strong military power and "take the gloves off". He believed that Trumbull's diplomacy with Russia and rejection of private military firms made America look vulnerable as the Russians were previously involved in hacking a U.S election. Therefore, he secretly planned to assassinate Trumbull by hiring Salient Global to frame Mike Banning and assassinate Trumbull in return for a ten million dollar payment. After Salient Global completed the President Trumbull's assassination, he would become the new President and attack Russia for the false assassination. It can be assumed he got his motives and ideals from George Washington; the first U.S President and a revolutionary general/leader.

Angel Has Fallen Edit

After the attack, Vice President Martin Kirby is sworn in as Acting President due to Trumbull being in a coma. After Trumbull comes out of his coma, Kirby is revealed to be involved with Wade Jennings, the CEO of paramilitary organization Salient Global. He planned to retaliate by attacking Russia due to the 'assassination attempt' on the President.

After Banning was exonerated, Trumbull has David Gentry arrest Vice President Kirby for treason thanks to the evidence kept by Jennings as an insurance policy and uncovered by late FBI Agent Helen Thompson.

Kirby is thought be sentenced to prison for life or executed for his crimes, betrayal and conspiracy. It is unknown who took his place as Vice President.
