The US Secret Service allegedly found fingerprints on the bag of cocaine found in the White House and knows who they belong to, contradicting a report from Thursday that there was no suspect in the case.
Soldier of Fortune magazine reported that a source told it that the Secret Service must have known who had handled the bag since last week. The publication said they are withholding the name until they can get official confirmation.
US Secret Service spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Breitbart News in response to the allegations that it is "absolutely not true." He said, "The FBI independent from the Secret Service tested the packaging of the cocaine and there were no discernible fingerprints or DNA found on the baggie, the packaging.”
"There were no investigative leads in the video surveillance that we went through, nothing that could lead investigators to a possible individual who may have deposited that cocaine in the cubby in the locker," he continued. "So without that, without any type of physical evidence, in a law enforcement investigation, you know, we really had no ability to question the individuals who were in the White House that day because we did not have any reasonable suspicion to link them to the contraband item. We had no physical evidence to help us identify that person of interest."
“But I can say definitely that we do have the reporting back from the FBI and it did say there’s no physical evidence on that thing,” he added.
On Thursday it was reported that the Secret Service had concluded its investigation on who brought the drug into the White House. After looking through security footage and visitor logs they claimed to have found no suspects.
Tennessee Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) called the investigation "another cover-up," and said the White House "is the most secure building in the entire world, you can't go in there, and they have facial identification, they [can get] your social security number. Nobody, not even in the press, goes in there without them knowing. This is a bad look on the Secret Service and a horrible look on this White House."
The bag containing a white powdery substance was found in the west wing at the beginning of July. It was confirmed to be cocaine on July 5. Since then, speculation about who it belonged to has circulated the internet with many questioning if it belonged to the president's son, Hunter, who had been at the White House just days prior and has a notable history of drug use.
