The U.S. Secret Service found and preserved DNA evidence during the investigation into the bag of cocaine that was found in the White House in July.
However, the federal law enforcement agency kept the findings hidden from the taxpaying public.
The revelation was revealed after over 100 pages of documents were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
The narrative surrounding the discovery of the cocaine at the White House, and the handling of the investigation into the discovery, has been fraught with inconsistencies and cover-ups.
In July, Hazmat crews were dispatched inside the entrance gate near the West Wing of the White House.
They were called in to investigate a suspicious white substance that was found in a locker.
The powder tested positive for cocaine hydrochloride.
Initial reports stated that the cocaine was found in the library.
The library is located on the ground floor of the White House.
However, authorities later changed the location of where the cocaine was found.
The cocaine was allegedly stashed in a “cubby” in a storage facility in the West Wing and NOT the library.
Investigators claim it may not be possible to determine who brought the cocaine to the White House because the area “wasn’t necessarily covered by cameras all that well.”
However, former White House officials, including ex-Obama Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, stated that it would be impossible to get a bag of cocaine into the building due to the strict security protocols, including searchers.
As Slay News reported, Bongino revealed that the only people who could bypass the searchers would be the president’s immediate family members.
On Monday, the Biden admin released the first photos of the 2 grams of cocaine found at the White House.
The images were released in response to a FOIA request filed by The Daily Mail.
Responding to the images on his Fox News show, host Jesse Watters warned viewers that the Secret Service has been misleading the public about a cocaine investigation at the White House.
According to Watters, this shifting narrative raises questions about the accuracy and transparency of the agency’s statements.
Watters highlighted discrepancies in the substance’s testing, which further complicate matters.
The initial results indicated opioids and amphetamines, before being identified as cocaine.
The varying results raise doubts about the testing process and the subsequent handling of the evidence.
Shortly after launching the investigation, the Secret Service closed its probe into the cocaine without conducting any interviews.
The agency concluded that no suspect was identified.
Secret Service claimed to have found no fingerprints, DNA samples, or any leads.
The agency didn’t interview the 500 potential culprits, according to Secret Service spokesman Anthony Gugliemi.
Gugliemi argued that doing so would be a strain on resources.
Watters reported that the original narrative stated that no DNA was recovered from a bag of cocaine found at the White House.
It was also reported that the lack of DNA led to the destruction of the bag.
However, the FOIA documents suggest the presence of three tubes of DNA.
This information directly conflicts with the Secret Service’s initial reports.
It appears the DNA samples were also preserved in an evidence vault.
“There’s more evidence that they didn’t destroy: an envelope with three tubes of DNA,” Watters revealed on his show.
“Where did they get the DNA from?
“They got the DNA off the baggie.
“So the Secret Service lied, and so did the White House.
“They did find DNA on the baggie, and the DNA was processed and has been moved to an evidence vault for preservation.
“So the Secret Service has an insurance policy,” he noted.
“We asked the Secret Service for an explanation and they said, ‘Oh, it’s secondary DNA.’
“But the initial Secret Service report clearly said there was no DNA found and there is no physical evidence.
“But the documents show they’re keeping a DNA sample in an evidence locker.”
According to Watters, the Secret Service will likely destroy the DNA evidence.
“They have something we don’t know,” he said.
“And the Secret Service told Prime Time they may end up destroying the DNA evidence at some point down the road, you know, ‘protocol.’
“Primetime ask the Secret Service, why didn’t you take DNA samples from your suspect list?” the anchor asked.
“They said they would have needed a court order.
“This tells me two things,” said Watters.
“The Secret Service didn’t want to crack the case, or the Secret Service knew the coke was found in the library and put it in a cubby and closed the case.”
