Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino says White House cocaine belonged to Biden family member, nobody else could have bypassed security

On Sunday, July 2, a bag of what was later determined to be cocaine was found at the White House, and there ensued intense reporting on the matter over the following days with regard to an ongoing Secret Service investigation to determine who was responsible for bringing the illicit narcotics into the highly-secured building.

That investigation shouldn't take too long or have very many potential suspects to scrutinize, according to former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, as only the president and his family are allowed to bypass security checkpoints to enter the White House, the Conservative Brief reported.

Of course, that assertion from Bongino substantially undermines the manner in which the White House and some in the media have played dumb and made excuses and even suggested that it may never be known who the federally controlled substance belonged to.

Has to be a member of the Biden family

On Wednesday, amid the speculative media reports and White House dissembling on the issue, conservative podcaster Bongino tweeted, "There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex. No chance that would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those."

The next day, obviously in response to the administration's furtive excuses and refusal to answer basic questions about the discovered cocaine, the former Secret Service agent posted, "DO NOT TRUST the White House version of events about the cocaine. The Bongino Rule is in full effect."

Also on Thursday, Bongino shared a brief "explainer" video to provide some of the details of the White House security setup and why he believed that there was really nobody else other than a member of the Biden family -- or some other protectee of the Secret Service -- who could have made it into the White House without the cocaine being found on them.

"There's no other explanation"

"Here’s the issue here. There’s going to be a lot of commentary on this from people who have not done security or aren’t even remotely familiar with how security at the White House even works," Bongino said in the two-and-a-half-minute video.

He went on to describe how the roughly 18-acre complex is completely surrounded by tight security measures and everybody, from aides and staffers to guests and tourists, is required to go through a limited number of security checkpoints.

Bongino further asserted that it "didn't matter" where, precisely, the drugs were found inside the White House, as the important thing to note is that it would have had to go through one of the limited security checkpoints first -- unless it was brought in by somebody who could "bypass" those checkpoints, which pretty much includes only the Secret Service agents themselves and their protectees, meaning President Biden and his family members.

"The Secret Service didn't have cocaine on them, so it had to be one of the protectees. There's no other explanation," he said. "They would have never gotten through the checkpoint, there's not a chance in hell."

"They were driven in, probably, one of the family members, likely driven in by the Secret Service who had it on them, found it, and just left it in the White House," he concluded. "It's a simple explanation. Occam's Razor. Keep it simple, stupid. It's sad, but true, that is most likely what happened."

"That's the only way it would have got in there. No one is getting in the 18-acre complex -- nobody, not staff, no one else -- with cocaine on them. Period," Bongino added.

Secret Service to brief Congress Thursday on cocaine incident

Meanwhile, NewsNation reported Monday that congressional Republicans are demanding answers for how the bag of cocaine managed to get past security checkpoints and make it into the White House, allegedly to a foyer area in the West Wing near the Situation Room.

Some of their questions may soon be answered, as the Secret Service will reportedly provide a briefing to lawmakers and staff Thursday morning -- though the possibility of further coverup and obfuscation on the matter can't be entirely dismissed.
