Secret Service Knows Who Brought Cocaine Into WH: ‘We’ve Known Since Last Week’
By: Mark Steffen
July 17, 2023: The White House Secret Service knows the individual who brought cocaine into a secure area of the building, according to sources close to the investigation who spoke with Soldier of Fortune.
Insiders say the Secret Service has known since last week who is responsible for a breach in security that set off a firestorm and led to congressional inquiries, but that the police force is withholding the name of the guilty party for now. If true, the Secret Service falsely told members of Congress in a briefing last week that it had no knowledge of who brought the bag of cocaine into the building.
“We know who handled it,” one security source said. “We’ve known since last week.”
Two sources confirmed the name of the individual and said that fingerprints were left on the bag of drugs. The Secret Service allegedly got a match on fingerprints by using a lab that delivers rapid results in less than 24 hours.
Soldier of Fortune has filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the federal agencies most likely to document the name of the person whose fingerprint was on the bag of cocaine, including the Washington, D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department; the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia; and the U.S. Secret Service.
Representatives from the Secret Service are meeting on Thursday with the House Oversight Committee as Congressional Republicans continue to dig into a controversy that has engulfed the Biden administration since the discovery of cocaine during the weekend before the Fourth of July. Some speculated that embattled first son Hunter Biden, who has struggled publicly with drug addiction and was present for a celebration at the White House shortly before the discovery of the cocaine, may be the culprit.
Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) last week asked Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle to provide “a staff level briefing” on the cocaine issue by July 14.
“The presence of illegal drugs in the White House is unacceptable and a shameful moment in the White House’s history,” Comer wrote in his July 7 letter to Cheatle.
Without a public suspect, the Secret Service has been left battered by the wind from House Republicans like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) who called out the hypocrisy of employees in the White House who may use illicit drugs while Americans submit to random drug testing just to keep their jobs.
