Congressman Tim Burchett (R-TN) claimed the Secret Service blew up the baggy of cocaine found in the White House and destroyed all the DNA evidence.
“Because apparently when they went in and got the bag, they treated it as a biological entity and for some reason destroyed it, because…to me, it just seems like they would go in there with the hazmat suits on, put it in a protective bag, take it to a lab for analysis, but instead, apparently they blew the thing up. It’s just a complete joke and a nightmare,” Burchett said.
According to Dan Bongino, a former secret service agent with many connections within the agency, many agents are furious about how the Cocaine at the White House incident was handled.
“So there’s probably less than 200 people who could have left this cocaine, by the way, in a bag which is plastic, which is non-porous, meaning it’s probably not that hard to pull a latent print,” Bongino told Mary Margaret Olohan at Turning Point USA event.
“They’ve got to know who did it. The question who’s pressuring them to not find out who did it? And it’s gotta be coming from this White House. This is terrible. Don’t destroy this agency like the FBI. It’s really unbecoming,” he added.
“A lot of my former colleagues at the Secret Service who retired, they are absolutely furious about this. Oh yeah, yeah, I can tell you, I got 50 emails, communications, texts from people. “This is embarrassing, humiliating.” These are good guys, man, guys who worked for Obama and Bush, non-partisan guys, most of them aren’t even political. This is embarrassing, they know exactly who it was,” he added.
Earlier this week, White House aide John Kirby claimed the secret service “did all they could” after their inconclusive investigation into the White House cocaine incident.
During this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Anchor Shannon Bream asked, “I want to talk about a national security issue that is domestic and that is cocaine in the White House.
“Certainly, you can understand that Americans, many of them, first of all, are aghast that there was ever cocaine in the White House. We heard reports of marijuana a couple of times found there last year as well. But more importantly, it is that the case was closed in less than two weeks.”
“I can’t really speak to the investigation done by the Secret Service. They did the best they could to track down how it got there and who it might belong to.”
