Whoever left their coke in the White House can smile … they’re not gonna get busted for it, because the Secret Service has no video evidence to nail a suspect.
The Secret Service says it closed its investigation into the bag of cocaine that was found July 2 in the West Wing — and, absolutely stunningly, they’ve been unable to identify who left it.
The agency says there was “no surveillance video footage found” that revealed who made the coke drop. Further, the Secret Service says the FBI lab couldn’t find any fingerprints or DNA it could use to compare with the “known pool of individuals” … such as White House staffers.
Interestingly, authorities say the coke was found in a “receptacle used to temporarily store electronic and personal devices prior to entering the West Wing.”
You’d think there are security cameras blanketing nearly every inch of the President’s residence — especially in the West Wing, which hosts so many visitors, journalists and staffers each day. If ya buy what the Secret Service is saying here … that’s, apparently, not the case.
The Secret Service says it’s closing the investigation “due to a lack of physical evidence.”
