According to a request for public records made by the Daily Mail, newly revealed images show the cocaine cache found in the White House in July.
On July 2nd, a couple of days after President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was spotted leaving the White House, the Secret Service conducted a routine security check and found a small bag of cocaine inside the West Wing. After the Daily Mail filed a public records request, the Secret Service released images showing the bag of cocaine in the White House phone locker.
The White House had to be evacuated when the Secret Service uncovered the narcotics because it was first considered to be anthrax. A Secret Service probe included fingerprint and DNA testing of the remaining cocaine. It examined surveillance video of hundreds of persons and visitor records from the White House. But they claimed they couldn’t name a suspect.
Sixty-three percent of respondents to a WPA poll for Club for Growth said they thought it was a concern that the Secret Service couldn’t identify the cocaine’s owner. While 41% of Americans consider it a major issue, 30% dismiss it outright.
A report showed that the suggestion that any member of the Biden family could have been responsible for the cocaine was shot down by White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
After filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Judicial Watch said last week that it had acquired 112 pages of Secret Service data showing images and conversations involving cocaine seized inside the Biden White House in July.
DHS withheld all 34 documents because it believes doing so would violate an interest shielded by the Privacy Act, a criterion known as “foreseeable damage.”
Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, said the pictures and paperwork show how much the cocaine crisis under Biden cost and how much of a hassle it was.
Few Americans believe that the administration can’t find out who smuggled this cocaine into the West Wing. Notably, no records were kept throughout the purported inquiry into who was responsible.
