Former secret service agent Dan Bongino is claiming that the only explanation for the presence of cocaine in the White House is that President Joe Biden or his family members brought it inside.
“The 18-acre complex is like a ring surrounding the whole thing. The only way to get in is to go through one of the checkpoints,” he pointed out. There could be "no one" who could have just gotten through the checkpoint and brought cocaine in. "It's someone who would have bypassed the checkpoints."
“Well, who bypasses the checkpoints? The secret service with the protectees; Biden; the Biden family members; Jill Biden … The secret service didn't have cocaine on them. So, it had to be one of the protectees. There's no other explanation.”
“Probably one of the family members was likely driven in by the secret service who had it on him, found it, and just left it in the White House … Sad but true, that is what's most likely what happened.” No one else could have gotten into the 18-acre complex with cocaine on them, concluded Mr. Bongino.
“I have been through Secret Service screening many times … You would not get through those checkpoints with something like cocaine. Family members are not checked like regular folks.”
He said that audio recording from the HAZMAT team that was brought in to identify the "white powder" was in the "library of the residence. I was a deputy to the president. I went there once after a private dinner with President Trump. You don't get to go in there whenever you want.
"Secondly, if you were a certain category like I was, with a blue access, all-access pass to the White House, or a member of the family, if you come into the White House in a vehicle, your vehicle isn't searched."
There may be a canine inspection "but they don't even open up your vehicle. You can bring in anything."
"If you're a member of the press or a visitor, that's not the case. You go through multiple security checkpoints. So let's be clear—it's a member of the family or a very senior person working for the president.
Rudy Giuliani Weighs InThe U.S. Secret Service is yet to identify a suspect in the cocaine incident. In an interview with Newsmax on Thursday, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that the “entire Secret Service should resign” if they can’t figure out who brought the cocaine into the White House. “This is a relatively narrow group of people; it's not the whole world we're investigating,” he said.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during a Wednesday briefing that the cocaine was found in the West Wing of the White House which is a “heavily traveled area.”
Mr. Giuliani, who was an adviser to former President Donald Trump, dismissed the explanation. “It is not heavily trafficked. That's absurd. That lying press secretary made it sound like its Grand Central Station,” he said. “Of course, there are people that come in there; it's a waiting room. But it's not heavily trafficked.”
Secret Service Capabilities in DoubtIn a July 6 interview with Newsmax, former Secret Service agent Melanie Burkholder and former FBI agent Jonathan Gilliam, raised concerns about the capabilities of the Secret Service.
Mr. Gilliam pointed out that if the Secret Service is not capable of identifying the perpetrator of a crime that has occurred among a small group of people in a confined space which is “probably the most guarded location in the United States,” then their ability comes into question.
“This is a complete failure, as far as protecting, not just the president, but America's House … Let's say this was a small amount of anthrax. That's enough anthrax to kill several people in that area within that confined space,” Mr. Gilliam said.
“The Secret Service is, in essence, telling us that, if it was anthrax or any other type of volatile powdered substance, they're not going to be able to find out who brought it in. And that is a scary, scary thought.”
Pointing out that the incident has raised concerns regarding the level of security at the White House, Comer asked Cheatle to assist the investigation conducted by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability by providing a staff-level briefing of the matter by July 14. Comer is the chairman of the committee.
