(DCWatchdog.com) – With numerous Biden family scandals, some easily get forgotten, but Americans have just been reminded of one of the most shameful ones – the White House drug discovery – as the Secret Service has been forced to release photos of the find that many associated with Hunter Biden.
In a new development, photographs of cocaine found in a phone locker at Joe Biden’s White House during the summer have been made public.
See the photos below.
These images were released by the United States Secret Service following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Daily Mail, The Post-Millennial reports.
The discovery of these drugs occurred on Sunday, July 2, while the Biden family, including first son Hunter Biden, were spending the weekend at Camp David in anticipation of Independence Day.
Following the discovery, the West Wing of the White House was promptly evacuated, triggering an 11-day investigation.
The Secret Service concluded the investigation in less than two weeks, citing a “lack of evidence” for the closure and resulting in no arrests.
According to the Secret Service, around 500 individuals were considered potential suspects.
However, security camera footage offered no assistance in the investigation, as the cameras did not cover the locker area.
Details regarding whether any of these suspects were interviewed during the investigation remain undisclosed.
The Secret Service reported that the “dime-sized” bag containing less than a gram of cocaine bore no usable fingerprints or other DNA evidence.
This bag was subsequently sent to an FBI laboratory in Quantico for analysis.
Following the investigation, which concluded on July 13, the drugs were scheduled for “destruction” the next day, on July 14.
Initial reports about the location of the cocaine varied, initially claiming it was found in the White House library, then in the West Wing lobby, and finally near the cubbies by the West Executive entrance.
When asked if the drugs could have belonged to a Biden family member, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized that the family was not present at the White House when the discovery was made. She expressed frustration when a reporter questioned, five days after the discovery, whether she could definitively state that the drugs did not belong to a Biden family member.
“You know, there has been some irresponsible reporting about the family and so I’ve got to call that out here. And I have been very clear,” Jean-Pierre stated.
