GOP Congresswoman Gives Bombshell Update On Drugs Found In White House
The Secret Service shocked congressional Republicans on Thursday when it announced its investigation into cocaine that was found in the West Wing of the White House had been closed without identifying a suspect.
The Protective Agency stated that due to a lack of physical evidence, such as fingerprints or sufficient DNA found on the bag the cocaine was found in, they could not single out an individual from the hundreds who had passed through the vestibule where it was discovered.
"They know who goes in the White House. They have facial identification, they have — y'all know you can't go in there without giving your Social Security number anyway, and to say that it's just some weekend visitor, that's bogus," Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) angrily stated while storming out of a briefing offered to lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee.
Roughly one gram of cocaine was located July 2 by a Secret Service agent in a storage locker inside the West Wing executive entrance, and GOP lawmakers confirmed that no cameras were in place to capture the potential culprit of the act.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) asked investigators if they had drug-tested the approximately 500 people that had left the small bag of cocaine, to which they replied "no" and that they were "unwilling to do so."
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy blasted the White House in a statement to Fox News, calling the investigation "a farce" and claiming that in the most secured of buildings "they don't have any answers."
Furthermore, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) found it "disturbing" that no security measures are in place to detect substances in the White House, noting it was the third time drugs had been found on the premises during the Biden administration.
President Biden and his staff are subject to routine drug tests, but there are no similar regulations for those who take part in the behind-the-scenes West Wing tours.
For the second White House-related scandal in just as many weeks, McCarthy questioned why questions surrounding potential Biden administration wrongdoing were always left unanswered.
"It just seems to me that in America today anything involving Biden Inc. gets treated differently than anything else and that shouldn't be the case," he concluded.
