(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – The Secret Service announced on Thursday the results of its investigation into the cocaine found at the White House. Incredibly to many, it claimed it could not determine the person involved due to a lack of solid evidence.
After briefing Congress, the agency revealed that the drug was detected on July 2 in an area where personal and electronic items are held before entering the West Wing.
The focus of the investigation was to find out how the substance entered the White House, which required a careful examination of security systems and procedures.
The investigation looked back at several days leading up to the discovery, identifying many individuals who might have been in the area where the substance was found. This allowed investigators to create a group of known people to compare with forensic evidence from the FBI’s analysis of the substance’s packaging.
However, the investigation was hindered by the lack of usable fingerprints and DNA for cross-referencing during the examination of the FBI’s laboratory findings.
The Secret Service confirmed that they could not match the evidence against the group of known individuals. The FBI’s assessment also supported the initial suspicion that the substance was cocaine.
There was no available surveillance footage that could provide leads for the investigation or alternative methods to identify the person who deposited the substance. As a result, the investigation could not identify a suspect among the many individuals who visited the area where the cocaine was found.
Due to the lack of concrete evidence, the Secret Service concluded the investigation.
Before the Secret Service made this announcement, an anonymous source informed Fox News Digital that the agency intended to close the investigation without identifying the owner of the cocaine. The source mentioned that officials were still unaware of who brought the drug into the White House.
Representative Tim Burchett, a Republican from Tennessee, confirmed that less than a gram of cocaine was found, as disclosed by the Secret Service during the briefing.
During the briefing, Representative Lauren Boebert, a Republican from Colorado, asked about the security measures at the lockers where the cocaine was found. She mentioned that the Secret Service confirmed that the locker key was missing.
Boebert was informed that there were no records or video surveillance of the lockers. The investigation only conducted background checks on the individuals present that weekend, but no suspicious individuals were identified. Boebert suggested that all staff members present at the White House that weekend should undergo drug testing.
Representative Nancy Mace, a Republican from South Carolina, stated to Fox News Digital that she does not necessarily believe the cocaine belongs to a member of the Biden family.
Initially, there were conflicting reports about the location of the cocaine discovery, but it was later confirmed that it was found near the West Executive entrance, a more secure area than previously reported.
The incident occurred while President Biden and his family were at Camp David. Some of Biden’s Republican critics insinuated that the administration showed a lack of interest in identifying the culprit.
