Republicans Demand Answers in White House Cocaine Incident
Republicans in both chambers of Congress are vehemently pushing back against media reports suggesting that the Secret Service might never uncover the identity of the individual who brought cocaine into the White House. The shocking discovery of drugs on Sunday evening has raised serious concerns among lawmakers.
“I’ve been in and out of that entrance a million times. It’s one of the most heavily secured and constantly surveilled places on Earth. They keep detailed records on who enters and exits and when. I find it difficult to accept that they can’t figure out who put the cocaine there,”
Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) have also expressed skepticism about the possibility of never identifying the culprit, given the high level of security at the White House. Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) went a step further, suggesting that the White House may not be interested in finding out who the cocaine belongs to.
“White House cocaine culprit unlikely to be found, as long as White House officials don’t want them found,”
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) took a bold stance, proposing mandatory drug testing for everyone, including President Joe Biden, until the responsible party is identified. Boebert’s call for accountability has sparked further debate.
“So let me get this straight, the White House is refusing to say whether the cocaine culprit will be arrested? Well, I think we should drug test EVERYONE, including Joe Biden, until we know who smuggled illegal drugs into the White House,”
The exact location within the White House where the drugs were discovered remains unclear. Conflicting reports suggest it could be the West Wing, a west executive basement entryway into the West Wing, or even a White House library. The House Oversight and Accountability Committee has initiated its own investigation into the security measures that failed to intercept the cocaine before it entered the premises.
Committee Chairman Demands Answers
House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) expressed his outrage and called the incident a “shameful moment in the White House’s history.” He emphasized that Congress funds White House security procedures and expects the Secret Service to maintain effective safety protocols. Comer has requested a briefing from the Secret Service to assist the committee in its investigation.
