Only the president’s family could smuggle cocaine into the White House, according to Secret Service veteran Dan Bongino.

“There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex. No chance that would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those,” Bongino said.

Bongino also said that his sources in the Secret Service have told him that President Joe Biden’s mental state is deteriorating to the point that it is more than just a little problematic, adding that some at the agency told him that Biden’s mental acuity was rapidly deteriorating.

“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. It gives me no joy in saying this and I mean that: [Biden] is in real significant trouble,” Bongino said, adding that his sources who are outside of the Secret Service but who are still in Biden’s orbit say it’s worse than he has “just lost a step.”

“It’s not a mystery. It’s the worst-kept secret in the White House,” Bongino said.

The U.S. Secret Service found an “unknown item,” which led to the evacuation of the White House grounds. A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed on Wednesday that laboratory testing for the material discovered in the White House was cocaine.

Regardless of whether a suspect is named, the U.S. Secret Service is anticipated to wrap up its investigation into a bag of cocaine found in the West Wing this week, a federal law enforcement official told CNN.

“As of Thursday afternoon, investigators had yet to receive results of the DNA or fingerprint analysis but had already begun reviewing visitor logs and security camera footage. This timeline reflects the current progress of the investigation, but law enforcement investigations are fluid and that timeline could shift,” CNN reported.

“The official reiterated that it may be difficult to identify a culprit given how many people walk through the entrance near where the bag of cocaine was found. CNN previously reported that cocaine was found in a cubby near the ground floor entrance to the West Wing where staff-led tours of the White House pass through on their way into the building. Those tours typically only occur on weekends,” the outlet added.


In a Rumble video titled “The Cocaine-Gate Inside Scoop,” Bongino gave his account of what he believes happened after the Secret Service announced on Sunday that a “suspicious white powder” found in the White House turned out to be the illegal drug.

“DO NOT TRUST the White House version of events about the cocaine. The Bongino Rule is in full effect,” he prefaced on Twitter.

“Here’s the issue here. There’s going to be a lot of commentary on this from people who have not done security or aren’t even remotely familiar with how security at the White House even works,” he noted in the video.

After noting that the White House sits on an 18-acre site, he explained that there are only two checkpoints where visitors can get in, and they are heavily manned by Secret Service personnel using the best screening technology.

“Who could have possibly gone through a checkpoint and brought cocaine in?” he asked rhetorically. “The answer is no one. It’s someone who would have bypassed the checkpoints.”

Bongino then noted that Secret Service agents and those they protect, such as the first family and guests of the Bidens, would not have to go through the checkpoints.

“The Secret Service didn’t have cocaine on ’em, so it had to be one of the protectees. There is no other explanation,” he continued. “They would have never gotten through the checkpoint. They were driven in,” Bongingo added.

The host went on to say that “it’s a simple explanation” before referencing Occam’s razor — meaning the simplest solution is nearly always the correct answer.

“Keep it simple, stupid,” Bongino said. “Sad, but true. That is most likely what happened. It’s the only way it got in there.”
