Secret Service Continues Their Search For The Source of Cocaine Found In The White House

The White House started this week on a high note with the discovery of a substance found in the West Wing that has tested positive for cocaine. The discovery of the white, powdery substance led to the White House being evacuated until the Secret Service could confirm what the substance was. The substance was found on Sunday night in a “work area” of the West Wing and was later confirmed by the Secret Service, after lab testing, to be cocaine.


White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, has repeatedly stated the White House hosts many tours and guests in the West Wing of the White House, implying that the cocaine could’ve come from numerous different sources. Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino disagrees. He took to Twitter and made this statement:


‘There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex,” he said on Twitter. “No chance that would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those.”


While the Secret Service does not currently have any official suspects, there is a lot of talk about the President’s son, Hunter Biden, being a likely suspect given his well-known past addictions to cocaine and the fact that he had just recently visited the White House.


In response to the situation with the White House, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) has announced that the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability will begin investigating the situation involving the discovery of cocaine in the White House. Comer wrote a letter to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle stating:


 “This alarming development requires the Committee to assess White House security practices and determine whose failures led to an evacuation of the building and finding of the illegal substance,” Comer wrote. “The presence of illegal drugs in the White House is unacceptable and a shameful moment in the White House’s history.”
