The White House is apparently giving up on finding who is responsible for leaving an illicit drug in the executive mansion last weekend. At least, that’s what Politico reported based on the testimony of an unnamed law enforcement official.
“White House cocaine culprit unlikely to be found: Law enforcement official,” the headline reads.
A snarky subhead noted, “Lines may have been snorted and crossed,” but “it’s possible we won’t know by whom.”
Officials evacuated the White House on Sunday evening after a white powdery substance was reportedly discovered in a “work area” in the West Wing (the location later changed to “near the Situation Room”). Dispatches from the emergency crews at the scene quickly confirmed that the “unknown item” was a bag of cocaine.
“We have a yellow bar stating cocaine hydrochloride,” a D.C. firefighter said in a radio communication at 8:49 p.m. on Sunday.
The White House is supposedly equipped with state-of-the-art security that would make finding the druggie who lost his illegal loot incredibly easy.
White House staff and visitors are required to go through multiple security checkpoints before entering areas like the West Wing. Some of these screening areas are even equipped with dogs that are trained to alert to illegal substances and items. Where metal detectors and cameras may fail, swarms of Secret Service and White House visitor logs are designed to prevail.
Against a bag of cocaine, however, Politico’s inside man suggests all of these measures are moot.
“Even if there were surveillance cameras, unless you were waving it around, it may not have been caught,” the anonymous official told Politico. “It’s a bit of a thoroughfare. People walk by there all the time.”
Unless the cocaine came from a member of the first family, such as Hunter Biden, who potentially resides in the White House and gets a free pass to walk in and out of the mansion’s many doors without scrutiny, finding the cocaine culprit should be an open and shut case for the “Excellence through talent, technology, and diversity” within the Secret Service. Yet, the Biden administration repeatedly showcases a lack of interest in discovering and sharing who dropped the bag and why.
“So, what’s preventing a visitor from bringing in anthrax or something that’s not magnetic into the White House?” one reporter queried at Wednesday’s press briefing.
It’s a question worth asking. If the cocaine caper truly was a security breach that law enforcement officials couldn’t catch at security checkpoints or on cameras, the White House cannot, in good conscience, claim that the first family is safe in the executive mansion.
Instead of addressing reporters’ concerns, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized that the president and his family — including his son, who has a long history with the illicit drug — were not at the White House during the incident. She, along with several White House leakers, also repeated the idea that the drugs were discovered in a “heavily traveled area” where “many … West Wing visitors come through.”
“We have confidence that the Secret Service will get to the bottom of this,” Jean-Pierre said.
Americans who know anything about the Biden family’s Secret Service team should not find that statement reassuring, considering the cush agency’s track record of going to great lengths to clean up Hunter’s missing gun mess in 2018.
Security failures in important government buildings, including the White House, have certainly occurred in the past. When protestors walked into the Capitol on January 6 — one of the most notable breaches in recent history — the Biden regime partnered with banks, cell phone companies, and Big Tech to track down, question, and arrest people near and in the federal building.
Months after the afternoon chaos, people like Georgia grandma Linda Menk, who merely attended the Trump rally near the White House on Jan. 6, received house visits from the FBI who demanded to question her about her stint in D.C.
To this day, with encouragement from the president himself, Biden’s Department of Justice is working to find and charge Americans for their presence in the Capitol in 2021. But when it comes to finding the crackhead who left his cargo somewhere in the president’s residence, the White House clearly couldn’t be less interested in pursuing an investigation.
The administration dead-set on “bringing transparency” back to the nation is hiding something.
Whether the cocaine belongs to someone with a history of doing crack like Hunter — who would be in direct violation of his sweetheart plea deal if the drug bag was connected to him — a staffer, or even a White House guest, Americans deserve to know why the Biden administration suddenly doesn’t care about security breaches.
