Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert dropped a bombshell on Thursday after she and other lawmakers were told during a briefing by the Secret Service the agency could not determine who brought cocaine into the White House earlier this month.
Boebert said that in addition to the cocaine, marijuana had been found in the Biden White House two times since 2022, Just the News reported.
“This is the third time that drugs have been found on the White House property since 2022, and we did not even hear about the marijuana,” she said.
“I certainly did not hear about the marijuana that was found in 2022, two times, and now there’s cocaine on the property. So everything they do is to move along to the next story. They know there will be another Biden crime crisis,” she added, according to the outlet.
Boebert confirmed “the agency likely won’t find a suspect in connection to the cocaine discovery and that the probe will conclude Friday,” the report said.
“There’s a list of more than 500 individuals that they looked into their backgrounds for prior drug records or use, and nothing was determined from their analysis,” Boebert said. “And the Secret Service is very eager to close this within the next couple of days.”
She added in a tweet: “I was informed in this morning’s SCIF meeting that the Cocaine Culprit investigation will be terminated with more than 500 potential perpetrators remaining. We cannot allow this to happen. The American people deserve to know who smuggled cocaine into the White House!”
Another House Oversight Committee member, Rep. Nancy Mace, told Just the News, “The cocaine caper is going to be concluded without any outcome. No suspects, no resolution, which is frustrating because every time there’s something unsavory happening on the president, the White House’s administration, we never get an answer.”
According to NBC News, officers from the uniformed division had discovered marijuana in the possession of two guests at the White House. The quantity of marijuana found was reportedly within the legal limit set by Washington, D.C., but the visitors were nevertheless advised against bringing marijuana back to the White House.
“Just left the most ridiculous meeting of all time with the Secret Service on the cocaine that was found in the White House,” Tennessee Republican Rep. Tim Burchett said after the briefing he stormed out of. “It turns out – they don’t know who did it. The investigation is going to be over at the end of the week, and they’re not going to find out who did it. And that’s basically it.”
“Another coverup,” he added. “You know, it’s the most secure building in the entire world. Nobody, not even the press, goes in there without them knowing.”
The revelation sparked considerable speculation that the cocaine might have been connected to Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, who has faced personal struggles with drug addiction and has been observed at the White House in recent times.
Hunter, who was discharged from the Navy Reserves in 2014 due to a positive cocaine test, has been depicted in various images and messages on a laptop he left behind at a computer repair shop in Delaware, showing him smoking crack and purchasing cocaine.
Last week, the Secret Service confirmed that a white powdery substance discovered in the White House was indeed cocaine.
“The discovery prompted widespread speculation that the cocaine could have belonged to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s troubled son who has battled cocaine and crack addiction in the past and has recently been seen at the White House. However, officials did not say if the younger Biden is under suspicion,” the Daily Wire reported.
