The Secret Service announced Thursday that it has concluded its investigation into cocaine found at the White House.
The Story: A white powder was found over the July 4 holiday weekend in a small bag in a “heavily traveled area” of the West Wing while the Biden family was at Camp David.
- “The Secret Service received the FBI’s laboratory results, which did not develop latent fingerprints and insufficient DNA was present for investigative comparisons,” a statement read.
- The Secret Service also said they did not find surveillance footage of the incident.
Deeper dive: Secret Service investigators told House Committee members in a closed-door meeting that they had not identified a suspect and were closing the investigation.
The point: Last week, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the investigation would end this week.
- “We will take any action that is appropriate and warranted, pending the outcome of the Secret Service,” Jean-Pierre told reporters.
