The White House just can’t seem to escape the swirling rumors and questions surrounding the cocaine found on its premises. Biden’s team has been doing some serious tap dancing to avoid the issue, but the truth is catching up with them. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is now passing the buck to the Secret Service, trying to deflect questions and responsibility. But sorry, Karine, that won’t work.
White House Cocaine Update: Secret Service Briefing May Indicate They Have Something https://t.co/rxVGmZcLtc

Fox News reporter Jason Leopold made Freedom of Information Act requests to the Secret Service, hoping to get some answers about the cocaine. But all he got was a big fat “no.” The Secret Service claimed that releasing any information could interfere with their ongoing investigation. Now that’s just a convenient excuse, isn’t it?

Had been told earlier today it would be moved back until late July. But that just changed.
Fox is told this means the USSS may have more to share about its inquiry

Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee is not going to let the Biden administration off the hook. Chairman James Comer has demanded answers and a briefing from the Secret Service regarding the cocaine and security at the White House. He’s absolutely right to be concerned. The presence of illegal drugs in the White House is unacceptable and a black mark on its history. This raises serious questions about the security measures in place. How did this happen under their watch?
Thankfully, the House Oversight Committee will finally get their briefing from the Secret Service on Thursday. And the fact that they moved up the date might indicate that they have something substantial to share. This could be a major turning point in the case. Will the Secret Service expose someone on the Biden team? Or will they try to deflect blame onto someone they can distance themselves from?
Former Representative Jason Chaffetz has a hunch that the Secret Service already knows who is responsible. With all the security measures in place, including badges and cameras, it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t have some leads. Chaffetz even suggests that they might be waiting for DNA evidence. Well, whatever they’ve got, they better spill the beans during the briefing with the House Oversight Committee.
The Biden administration can’t sidestep this issue any longer. They can’t hide behind their excuses and blame-shifting. It’s time to come clean and take responsibility for what happened. This incident raises serious concerns about the integrity and security of the White House. Let’s hope the Secret Service provides some much-needed clarity during the briefing. The American people deserve to know the truth.
