Recently, former Secret Service agent Don Bongino provided a significant update to the controversial finding of cocaine in the White House. Earlier this month, the illicit drug was discovered within the walls of the president’s home, one of the most secure buildings on the planet. However, the Secret Service claims insufficient evidence to determine who brought the substance into the building.
In a statement earlier last week, the agency said, “On July 12, the Secret Service received the FBI’s laboratory results, which did not develop latent fingerprints and insufficient DNA was present for investigative comparisons. Therefore, the Secret Service is not able to compare evidence against the known pool of individuals. The FBl’s evaluation of the substance also confirmed that it was cocaine.”
The Secret Service also claimed there wasn’t any captured surveillance footage that could provide any leads as to who the perpetrator may be. Coupled with the alleged absence of fingerprints and DNA, the agency currently has no evidence to pursue. Therefore, the case remains closed as of this time.
“There was no surveillance video footage found that provided investigative leads or any other means for investigators to identify who may have deposited the found substance in this area. Without physical evidence, the investigation will not be able to single out a person of interest from the hundreds of individuals who passed through the vestibule where the cocaine was discovered. At this time, the Secret Service’s investigation is closed due to a lack of physical evidence,” the agency’s statement continued.
However, Bongino claims to be receiving messages from former colleagues within the Secret Service who claim the agency knows exactly who brought the drugs into the White House. The former agent claims to have received dozens of communications from individuals substantiating the claims. See an interview below where Bongino discusses the matter.

Bongino talked about how the West Wing was a “limited access area” where very few people have access, providing a starting point for determining suspects. Furthermore, the former agent pointed out that the bag which contained the cocaine was plastic, meaning it should be fairly easy to obtain fingerprints from the material.
Ultimately, Bongino stated the Secret Service is such an elite agency that they would have to know who brought the substance in. “They got to know who did the question is who’s pressuring him to find out and to not find out who did it and it’s got to be coming from this White House,” he said. He further explained that his colleagues unanimously think this is a huge embarrassment for the agency.
Bongino then said what everybody is thinking out loud, pointing the finger at Hunter Biden as the culprit for the substance. He drew on Hunter’s well-known past with drug addiction as evidence and the fact that in his time at the agency, they had never dealt with this problem before. “You got to dude, who’s doing coke on tape. Who’s got a reputation? Of being a cokehead? He’s living in a White House. He’s there on Friday. That cokes found on Sunday. And everybody’s like, gosh, Who can it be,” Bongino said sarcastically.
