Secret Service To Brief Congressional Staff On Mystery Of Cocaine In Biden White House

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

As the story of Hunter Biden and his many activities continues to unravel, his father, President Joe Biden is implicated more and more.

Hunter Biden was arrested on his first drug charge at 18. His drug use spanned several decades, up to at least 2019 when he recorded his many trysts with cocaine, crack, and hookers. some feel that the action of leaving his laptop (which contained damning information) off at a computer shop and forgetting about it may have happened due to Hunter’s state (drugged) at the time.

When it seems there is enough evidence against the Biden family, the Secret Service members found cocaine in the Biden White House on the 4th of July weekend. And now over a week later the Secret Service and FBI are completely baffled on who could have put it there.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has refused questions about the matter, and although the Secret Service apparently has no idea who brought the cocaine into the White House, the elite security group Secret Service is now going to brief congressional staffers on their ongoing investigation.

Axios reported:

The U.S. Secret Service will provide a briefing to Congress on the discovery of cocaine at the White House, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: Republican lawmakers have argued the incident raises broader concerns about security at the White House complex.

The news of the briefing being scheduled was first reported by Spectrum News. Driving the news: The briefing will be at the staff level and will take place at 10 am Thursday ET, according to two GOP aides familiar with the plan.

A Secret Service spokesperson did not immediately respond to Axios’ request for comment.

The Oversight Committee is working overtime responding to all the Biden administration activities. Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) wrote to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle last week requesting a briefing by July 14. Comer said the “presence of illegal drugs in the White House” raised concerns about “the level of security maintained at the White House.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) also questioned Cheatle about the cocaine, pressing her for information on where it was found and whether the Secret Service had plans to “correct any security flaws.”

Cotton sent a letter to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle requesting the information on July 5. Cotton noted in his letter that the Secret Service has not confirmed exactly where the white powder was found, and listed obvious questions that would be foundations for any investigation.

Cotton’s number one question was, “Who has access to the White House complex without passing through any security screening” Please provide a complete list of all such individuals.”

Commentator Danc Bongino, who is a former Secret Service agent has declared that a member of the Biden family would be the only person who could enter the area without security screening. Bongino tweeted, ” There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex. No chance it would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those.”

Although Bongino is looking at the security facts in regard to the whole family, Hunter is a member of the family who has a history of cocaine use, and a video has been shared of Hunter on the White House balcony scratching his nose.

It seems bizarre that such a find could occur in the White House, and disturbing that security has not gotten to the bottom of the situation, but also taken measures against however the powder found its way in.

Cotton further questioned Cheatle in his letter:

The Secret Service annual report states approximately 10 million visitors to the White House exterior each year are screened by K9s. Who has access to the White House complex while subject to lesser security screening requirements than the most complete screening required of individuals accessing the West Wing?

How many visitors to the interior of the White House are screened by the Secret Service K-9s each year?

In the past five years, how often has the Secret Service encountered illegal drugs at the White House Complex?

If the Secret Service discovers the identity of the individual who brought illicit cocaine into the White House complex will they make an arrest under the provision Section 3056A of Title 18, U.S. Code, which states that the Secret Service has the authority to ” make arrests without warrant for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, or for any felony cognizable under the laws of the United States if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed or is committing such felony?

How often does the Secret Service audit its security procedures for the White House complex and adjust those procedures to correct potential flaws?

Senator Cotton has requested of the Secret Service complete lists and data concerning these questions.
