Trump says Secret Service must know who is responsible for White House cocaine snafu

The White House's official line on the recent cocaine snafu isn't all it's cracked up to be, former President Donald Trump implied Sunday.

Trump, 77, voiced his disbelief at the Secret Service's insistence it could not identify a suspect following its 11-day investigation into cocaine found in the West Wing earlier this month.

"You know how many cameras they have opposite the front door of the Situation Room?" Trump pondered on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

"I've gotten to know the Secret Service really well, and I can't speak more highly of these people — they are incredible people," Trump continued. "I believe that they know everything – they're really smart and good at what they do."

The protective agency confirmed last Thursday that its inquiry into the cocaine bag found in the White House was "closed due to a lack of physical evidence."

Due to insufficient fingerprints or DNA evidence, the Secret Service claimed it was unable to identify a suspect.

The drug stash was uncovered during a Secret Service agent's routine sweep of the foyer near the executive entrance of the White House on July 2, per the agency.

After some initial conflicting reports, investigators told members of Congress during a briefing last week, the cocaine was discovered by the basement entrance to the West Wing, one floor below the Oval Office and steps from the Situation Room.

"I don't think it's possible for bags of cocaine to be left in a certain area, in the Situation Room," Trump said Sunday. "I'm not talking about five blocks away, the Situation Room, where you decide on war, where you decide on nuclear."

Notably, the Situation Room has been undergoing renovations and White House officials stress that it has been out of use for weeks.

"This review included a backwards examination that spanned several days prior to the discovery of the substance and developed an index of several hundred individuals who may have accessed the area where the substance was found," the Secret Service said.

Despite the vestibule sitting a short distance from the Situation Room, the agency said cameras couldn't spot the substance or identify how long it sat there.

President Biden had left for Camp David roughly two days before the cocaine was found, accompanied by members of his family, including his son Hunter, who has been open about his past drug addiction struggles.

Hunter Biden was spotted at the White House the Friday before the substance was found, according to pool reports.

The White House fumed at questions from The Post about whether any members of the Biden family owned the cocaine.

Last year, the Secret Service also found small amounts of marijuana in the White House.

Some veteran investigators have raised questions about the cocaine probe.

The Post contacted a Secret Service spokesperson for comment on Trump's assertions.
